Warrior Path – Warrior Path Review

Literally out of nowhere, Greek semi-supergroup Warrior Path pop up into the metal world with big names sure to draw the attention of classic heavy metal fans; Bob Katsionis of Firewind and Yannis Papadopoulos of Beast In Black united! The catch? Neither of them were involved in the composition of Warrior Path‘s self titled debut. One day, previously unknown […]

Marius Danielsen – Legend Of Valley Doom Part 2 Review

I am anticipating this review to exceed the average number of mentions of “power metal”, but Norwegian singer, songwriter, guitarist and overall composing mastermind Marius Danielsen makes it hard to avoid that thanks to his metal opera featuring just about anyone famous in the genre. “Metal opera” is a positively tainted phrase coined by Mr. Tobias […]

Guardians Of Time – Tearing Up The World Review

Welcome to, where we only review colorful artworks. It’s a blessing and a curse. In a sense, Tearing Up The World‘s cover art is indicative of the record’s contents. That artwork screams power metal but contains a lot of brutality, which Guardians Of Time‘s music is not lacking. Indeed, Tearing Up The World is one of the fastest, […]

Masquerage – Hangman’s Revelations Review

I’m always looking forward to new releases from Stormspell Records’ roster, and Masquerage is just another gem in the rough featuring some hard-working people who somehow managed to stay underground all this time. The Finns have been around since around 2000, with four full-length records to their name already. I hadn’t known them before this album, […]

Seventh Wonder – Tiara Review

Yeah, any Tiara review’s opening will use the 8 years time span between Seventh Wonder‘s last record, The Great Escape, 2010, and Tiara. Is it more or less tacky to go meta? Anyway, eight years! That builds expectation. Especially as the Swedes have never disappointed with their albums, putting out prog metal opus one after another. Granted, after the […]

Dragony – Masters Of The Multiverse Review

There are few genuine classic melodic power metal bands left in the business, with most ancient champions either retiring or “evolving” into something no one asked for. Austria’s Dragony have been supplying the old power metal crowd with finest European forged steel since their inception around 2011, when their first album Legends released independently, a time where […]

Dynazty – Firesign Review

In 2016, Dynazty released the best power metal album of the year. Titanic Mass was a massive titan of hit rate, with every song being amazing in its own right. This caught me by surprise as I’d never even heard of the band before. What, me, the power metal mastermind? That’s because Dynazty went through some major changes […]

Black Majesty – Children Of The Abyss Review

Black Majesty have been one of the premier faces, if not the face of Australian power metal since their debut Sands Of Time in 2003. Their first three, characteristically blue-covered albums released through then legendary power metal label Limb Music perfectly suited the spirit of the time: melodic guitar leads, rapid fire riffs and drums and overall high-energy […]
