REVIEW
Groß war der Andrang der Sammlerzunft als VIGILANT's "Hellbound" Anfang dieses Jahres bei ebay auftauchte und schlussendlich für satte 300 US Dollar den Besitzer wechselte. Logischerweise schürt dieser horrende Preis die Nachfrage, doch ernüchternd muss man festellen, dass der geforderte Obolus, bezogen auf die musikalische Qualität dieses Rundlings, in keinster Weise gerechtfertigt ist. Man vermutet Aufgrund des coolen Covers Thrash Metal, diverse Stilbeschreibungen nagelten sich ebenfalls bei Power / Thrash Metal fest. Nun, geboten wird hundsgewöhnlicher Heavy Metal, vernetzt mit doomig und minimalen Power Einwürfen. Keinesfalls lausig, aber auch nicht der erwartete Kracher! Hier sollte jeder selbst die Entscheidung treffen, den zitierten Preis wird "Hellbound" jedoch zu keiner Sekunde gerecht... (Charly Kogler / 2010)

REVIEW
There was a big rush of collectors when VIGILANT’s “Hellbound” appeared on ebay at the beginning of this year. Finally, this cd goes for 300 US Dollars. Logically, this shocking price pokes the demand, but after a successful aquisition you will find out that musically, the charged high price is not worth the money. After lookin at the cool cover and hearing various style descriptions from other collectors, you’ll await a amazing Thrash / Power Metal gem, but what you will get is just an ordinary Heavy Metal release with a small throw-in of Doom and Power. On no account awfully, but it’s not the expected outstanding monster. So make up your own mind about a purchase, nevertheless, the price is not worth by any second...but it's rare as hell! (Charly Kogler / 2010)
