Every track on the EP lives up to its title. From the pounding Sign of the Warrior to the blistering title track. Basically, if you like one track on the album, you'll no doubt like the other four. On the down side, the songs aren't very diverse. They all carry on in the same thrashy power-metallic vein of Meliah Rage and early Iron Maiden, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially if you're a fan of early Iron Maiden or Meliah Rage or other bands of that nature.
However, if you aren't a fan of fast, sufficiently heavy, but somewhat-repetitive music , this EP might not be for you. It's not repetitive to the extent that every song sound identical to the last, it's just that you can't replay this album hundreds of times.
In the end, this album's pretty good. It isn't fantastic, though. In my opinion it shows the band have some serious potential and talent as musicians.
However, its just not an instant classic. Keep in mind this is the first official release of a new band; they've got plenty of time to record something that can truly be called a classic, but Heavier Than Metal just falls short of that status.

Blackout 4.Overall Heavier than Metal is a solid cube of concise heavy metal, like a car put through a compactor and then thrown at your head. Skull Fist didn't waste my time for a second with this EP, and even though they didn't blow my mind right out of the gate, I did enjoy myself a hell of a lot once I got past the silly image to the serious music.
