Review

This album is ATTIKA’s 2nd release and it is a real KILLER!Raw ass-kicking mind-blowing in-your-fuckin’-face power metal similar to JAG PANZER but influenced more by IRON MAIDEN especially on rhythm guitar,with thought-provoking lyrics, some GREAT vocals(every word is spitted out with SO much anger) that make your spine creak and U.S metal is king once again.Songs like Filming the tragedy”,”Hollow grave”,”Deliverer” and Black rose” are classics and for me the whole album lies in the top-20 of U.S metal releases.I don’t know if When heroes fall” was ever released on LP and though the CD edition is a little bit rare,it is not so expensive at all. Join the reign of power!ATTIKA rule-nothing else to say!

Wohl eines der besten Metal-Alben der Neunziger Jahre hat leider nie die Aufmerksamkeit erregt, die es verdient hätte. Musikalisch in der Nähe von JAG PANZER gelegen, hatten ATTIKA immer einen speedigen Einschlag ohne starke Melodien zu vernachlässigen. Stark! (Stefan Riermaier)
