TNA dishes out post–1980s metal
melodicism with real musical depth and a
loud, nasty, in–your–face production.
Their sound reflects many influences.
Imagine Emerald Rain trying to sound
like Mötley Crüe, with flashes of the
Scorpions' finely honed sting and a
gruff, muscular delivery. Nonetheless,
TNA is not floundering identity–less in
a sea of past rock greats. Their
powerful mix, while derivative, is
effective and fully developed.
ample melodic textures in its smartly
energetic arrangements, the burly vocals
and buzz–saw guitar tendencies of
"Finger On The Trigger" may be too rough
for some pop/AOR leaning fans.
| Still, TNA rocks up a storm, and that
is what the album is all about. A few songs may
feel too comfortably familiar and uninspired for
jaded ears, but there are no truly lame tracks,
because the band's sonic shred brings new life
to the old formula. Particular credit goes to
guitarist Sean Tarr, whose heroic performances
command repeated listens.
The package's sizzling artwork complements and
further enhances the impact of TNA and their
hard–hitting music. Ultimately, even though it
won't hit the mark for everyone, "Finger On The
Trigger" is well worth a shot for fans of
rough–edged melodic metal.
