...as it seems to have died and I feel like there's not enough love for power metal on this forum. So, anyone heard the new Firewind yet? I thought it was pretty average. A couple memorable songs (Mercenary Man, Angels Forgive Me, My Loneliness), a lot of filler. Lack of memorable riffs and choruses. Great solos. The bonus track is a cover of Maniac (from wherever it's from, everyone will recognize it as "that song that that asshole wouldn't stop humming"), and is somewhat out of place but cool. My unofficial review. Other opinions?
