Fans of traditional early 80’s epic power metal will devour this 5 song release. Lead track “Burning Lives” sets the standard sounding like they belong in the Metal Blade vaults along with the previously mentioned Omen, Liege Lord and Tyrant. “The Vow” continues in this style adding in a bit of extremely early Fates Warning feel as well.
“Dark Command” and “Battering Ram” are slow building tracks of epic proportions which are a grand reminder of how power metal should be as opposed to all the cookie cutter bands that have flooded the scene. Daniele has a confident vocal ability that at times recalls the vastly underrated James Neal of Malice. The closing track is a cover of Cirith Ungol’s “Join The Legion”. The guitars of Davide and Gianluca are faithful to the original and Daniele does some vocals gymnastics going for the true vocal style of Tim Baker.
