The German melodic hard rock kings have churned out another one since we last spoke with them, the new record and artwork being a not-so-subtle nod to the post apocalyptic cult movies that share the same name.

Mad Max’s formula for the fountain of youth is the same as their brothers-in-arms The Scorpions — a signature melodic voice paired with hard rock guitars that creates a hook that can’t be denied, no matter what decade you’re in.

So when Michael Voss pleads in his own Michael Sweet (Stryper) meets Andi Deris (Helloween) magic way, “Somebody Save Me!” or weaves his tale about Godzilla, you’ll be singing along, too.

And when he demands that you turn it down on track 10, it’s bound to start a riot. Ausgezeichnet!
