Enchanter – Symbols In Stone

Classic power metal in the vein of the mighty Omen, Enchanter’s “Symbols In Stone” is a 7-track release that will not disappoint fans of the early 80’s American metal movement.  The songs are typical of what you may have found on compilations such as New York Metal 84 or the first Iron Tyrants.

Lead vocalist Maurice Fauteux has as voice that recalls nobody in particular with a certain amount of a whiskey rasp.  Guitarist John Chouinard has the old school metal sound down pat.  The track that stands out is the 7 minute plus “Isle Of Avalon” which is pure epic metal bliss with Fauteux’s vocals soaring into the higher range.  The slow build works very well into a Maidenesque finale.
