Label: Rixi

Fantastic heavy/speed metal in the vein of early Europe (back when they still produced quality music), which is quite obvious to notice even through both band’s Swedish background. ┬áThe melodious dual guitar leads on this masterpiece of an album are simply mesmerizing, and don’t even get me started with Goran’s vocals, who can hit those blistering high notes with ease; again reminding of Joey Tempest from Europe. ┬áMake sure to check out my personal favorites, which include the mighty “Lay Down Your Arms”, “Diamond Mistress” and “Turn Me Loose”!
