Review

Believe me or not, but there are not many albums on earth, that simply blow me away after first 5 seconds! But with no doubt it is the one of them. 8 fantastic tracks full of fire, steel and blood, I haven't heard such a great Medieval Epic metal production for ages! Is this a perfect Heavy Metal album? Probably yes, as I really didn't find even one single second on this album, which I would like to remove. If you are dying for Medieval Steel, if you worship Manilla Road and their "Courts of Chaos" and "Crystal Logic", or if you can't live without Adramelch's "Irae Melanox", then you will love this album! I'm impressed, surely one of my personal favorites of all times! All hail Thunder Rider!
