Twilight Force – Dawn Of The Dragonstar (Nuclear Blast)

It’s possible, within in the grand Metal scheme of things, it strikes me that there is no such thing as a one hundred percent serious Symphonic Power Metal Band. They are 100% committed, don’t get me wrong, I’m talking about… Continue Reading →

Bloodbound – Rise Of The Dragon Empire (AFM)

It’s simple really. Do you like Melodic Power Metal? Do you like that Melodic Power Metal to have bombastic Symphonic arrangements? And big, memorable choruses? Do you…like Dragons…? Do you? Do you really? Then you will love Bloodbound! Previous album… Continue Reading →

Twilight Force – Heroes Of Mighty Magic (Nuclear Blast)

We live in confusing musical times. Bands change styles without warning, key members leave, two bands even exist at the same time with the same name. Familiar, dependable bands can become a disappointment and yet other unexpected artists surprise and… Continue Reading →

Rhapsody Of Fire – Into The Legend (AFM)

I was aware of this latest effort from Rhapsody Of Fire well before it came up for review and pre-ordered the geeky dragon statue version of the release plus a coloured vinyl to placate my vinyl addiction some time ago…. Continue Reading →

Dragonhammer – The X Experiment (My Kingdom)

Italian Power Metal and Dragons. It’s almost a given isn’t it? Dragon-this, Dragon-that…so what do we have here? Dragonhammer eh? A Dragon with a penchant for woodwork maybe? OK, safety goggles at the ready, let’s see if I can hit… Continue Reading →

Rhapsody Of Fire – Dark Wings Of Steel (AFM)

That’s a bloody dragon isn’t it? Right there on the front cover! They just can’t resist it can they – they’re obsessed! I had to look twice though, making it grey and almost spectre-like has disguised it a little (I… Continue Reading →

Rhapsody Of Fire – From Chaos To Eternity (AFM)

There has to be Dragons. There’s always Dragons. Occasionally Goblins, Dwarves, Trolls, Knights and Unicorns – sometimes all at the same time (which can really stain the carpet), hopefully there are Damsels, Princesses and at the very least Wenches, but… Continue Reading →
