Iced Earth – Incorruptible (Century Media)

Iced Earth – Incorruptible (Century Media)

There are two distinctive styles of Power Metal. On one hand, you have the ‘European’ take on it, which focuses a lot on melodies in the tracks, the atmosphere of the song and it also heavily favours neo-classical elements, symphonic arrangements/accompaniments and folk like traits... Read More
White Skull - Will Of The Strong (Dragonheart Records)

White Skull – Will Of The Strong (Dragonheart Records)

Having formed in 1988, White Skull could easily be viewed as stalwarts of the Italian power metal scene. “Will Of The Strong” is their tenth release and finds the band still blasting away with vocalist Federica Sister Boni leading from the front with her husky,.. Read More
Unleash The Archers – Apex (Napalm)

Unleash The Archers – Apex (Napalm)

Still resolutely having nothing to do with peach schnapps or BBC Radio 4, Canadian Metallers Unleash The Archers unleash (obviously…) their much anticipated fourth album. Ready to pound and plunder in equal measure, the band continue to straddle Metal territory somewhere between Battle Beast and.. Read More
Adrenaline Mob – We the People (Century Media)

Adrenaline Mob – We the People (Century Media)

Adrenaline Mob have been described as a super-group with current links to Symphony X and Trans-Siberian Orchestra and past ones to Dream Theater, Disturbed, Twisted Sister and a whole host of others. It’s more than a side project as it’s their third album, they’ve headlined.. Read More
Alestorm – No Grave But The Sea (Napalm)

Alestorm – No Grave But The Sea (Napalm)

The one and only heavy metal pirates of Alestorm have crashed upon our shores once more with their 5th full length album: “No Grave But The Sea”! It’s been 3 years since their last opus “Sunset On The Golden Age” so it’s about time we.. Read More
Dragonforce – Reaching Into Infinity (EarMusic)

Dragonforce – Reaching Into Infinity (EarMusic)

Dragonforce is one of those bands that you either love or loathe as the band hits us with their seventh album with new drummer Gee Anzalone showing the fans what he can do. Their last album “Maximum Overload” was a decent if unambitious album when.. Read More
Seven Kingdoms – Decennium (Napalm)

Seven Kingdoms – Decennium (Napalm)

Formed back in 2007, this is actually Seven Kingdoms’ 4th full length album and their third with the stable line-up fronted by vocalist Sabrina Valentine. This is the band’s first release on Napalm – the band used Kickstarter to raise $23000 to record it –.. Read More
Oversense - The Storyteller (S/R)

Oversense – The Storyteller (S/R)

Oversense. It’s a non-committal, less-than-obvious name isn’t it? It gives away nothing about the style of the album to follow. And to dub Oversense merely as Melodic Heavy Metal is also painting them into a corner that they will come out fighting from with teeth.. Read More
Pyramaze – Contingent (Inner Wound)

Pyramaze – Contingent (Inner Wound)

I’ve followed Pyramaze since their debut album back in 2004 and I must admit I feared the worst a few years back, but with this album (their second in three years) it looks like they are back to top form and there’s no stopping them.. Read More
Vandroya - Beyond The Human Mind (Inner Wound)

Vandroya – Beyond The Human Mind (Inner Wound)

It’s taken these Brazilian Power Metallers 4 years to follow up on their impressive, energetic and entertaining debut. Despite the frantic pace of many of the songs on that debut the band themselves were clearly in no hurry – there was plenty of live-work to.. Read More
Trial - Motherless (Metal Blade)

Trial – Motherless (Metal Blade)

Sweden’s Trial had a fantastic outing on their last album ‘Vessel’. For their new release for their new home on Metal Blade, the band have expanded their influences and made inroads towards experimenting with different sounds and feelings. Also a new logo and presentation, see.. Read More
Bloodbound - War Of Dragons (AFM)

Bloodbound – War Of Dragons (AFM)

I’m familiar with Bloodbound already, but this time the album title piqued my interest even further. Regular readers will know I’m partial to a bit of dragon imagery within the realms of Power Metal. Yes, dragons can be a bit of a bind at a.. Read More
