Hittman were a heavy metal band from New York formed in 1985. Their music was catchy, melodic, but at the same time energetic. They rock hard but not brutal, well played yet never getting complex with a singer recognize among thousands. Musically they were close contenders for the QUEENSRYCHE memory cup together with SCREAMER (even though HITTMAN had an added shot of KANSAS during their “Power” times). The first recording of the New Yorkans was the “Metal Sport” demo in 1985, but despite good reviews it took three long years until a label took the chance and brought the band closer to a wider audience. From the five demo tracks only the title track managed to get on the album. HITTMAN musically are brothers in crime of RYCHE, slightly progressive Melodic Metal of the highest category, with great melody-lines and song-structures and with Dirk Kennedy an excellent singer. And at times they even reach the dramatic atmosphere of SAVATAGE. « hide
