    Sounds quite nice. Not sure about the vocals - they Sound somehow strange (but not necessarily in a bad way).
    For my personal taste there are a lot of good bands which suffer in the vocal department.

    I fully agree on Nemesis which is outstanding. I prefer Elysium to Polaris which was not bad either - however Elysium has some of the best Stratovarius Songs of all time.

    I would say Darkest Hours, Under flaming skies, Infernal Maze, The Game never Ends and maybe Lifetime in a Moment.

    The title track did not impress me that much - I would have preferred 3 or 4 shorter Songs instead.

    Btw did anyone check out the latest Elvenking? Any good?

    It's quite melodic and worth checking out if you're a fan.

    Ok thanks mate. Will be purchased sooner or later. It is always a bit strange when it gets to a new release from Elvenking - if they deliver they are absolutely great. On the other Hand they are able to produce some of the worst Songs the PM genre has seen.

    What about the production Quality? Has not been too great for the last 2 Releases.

    I just checked out samples from the new Derdian release - good stuff. I like it a lot more than the latest stuff from Rhapsody.

    Also the new Falconer is awesome - even better than "Among beggars and thieves" which I already loved.

    And for the ones preferring the harder side of PM check out the new Savage Messiah and the latest release from Helstar:

    I have the new Savage Messiah. I liked it at first but it got old quickly to my ears. I also have the new Falconer. Definitely heavier than their usual output but still not even close to Northwind, in my opinion. I haven't heard new Helstar yet but will check it out.

    In the meantime, check out these catchy tunes...



    This one has been stuck in my head for a few days...

    ^I'll have to check those out, I liked those. Dreamtale reminds me of Kaledon.

    Anyways, I'm still obsessed with Orden Ogan



    ^Dat solo

    Orden Ogan are great. The opening song on their 2013 album is one of the finest, most epic old-school guitar anthems of recent times if not ever. That being said, the album as a whole is solid but doesn't grab me as much as Easton Hope did/does.

    The Frozen Few? Yeah that intro is epic as hell.

    And who can forget an oldie but good...from one of the best power/thrash albums ever, mainly due to the unique, epic vocals of Chitty...

    I love Orden Ogan, and "The Frozen Few" is one of the best intros to any power metal album.

    I actually really like the rest of the album too, although it has some slower portions that tend to wander a bit. I'm not a fan of the closing piece, but the track "Mystic Symphony" blows me away every time. That second verse, damn...

    The Album as great - however I think there are better Songs than These (eg Till the Stars cry out or This world of ice).

    Seeb is writing great Songs and he has made him a Name as Producer well (eg the last Human Fortress has been produced by him).
    However I am not 100 % sure about his talents as singer. The vocals are ok but the Songs could be even better with a standout singer.

    Sounds pretty solid. Dreamtale is on my to-buy list quite a while now - however there CDs are really expensive at Amazon.de
    And Amazon.de does not even know Beorn.

    If there is any power metal album I see myself going back too often it's this.



    So fucking good.

    Not power metal, but a "traditional metal" thread doesn't seem to exist, so fuck it.

    Good new tunes from Kentucky. Super huge Cirith Ungol vibe, and the vocalist is a complete babe too.

    this is cool thx. i imagine it'd be way cooler if it had the sound of KING OF THE DEAD though.

    i'm sure there was a trad metal thread here a while back.
