Penetrator is the second album by the Slovenian heavy metal institution Lene Kosti after their reunion in 2008. Those 11 songs plus bonus track impress not only with good sound and good production, but also with variety. Earthy Heavy Metal set on full power, occasionally stomping (Heavy Artillery), occasionally more sophisticated rythms (Refuse To Die), then again playful guitar licks that are relentlessly piercing your ears (13th Warrior). As guest musicians Manni Schmidt and Mat Sinner once again contributed to one song. Massive guitars dominate, but that does not matter at all, and even the only ballad offers beautiful and powerful guitars. Only the bonus track is rather bluesy than metal, just like a chill out after 40 minutes on full speed. Well done and highly recommended for fans of Judas Priest and / or Iron Maiden.
