Genre:Epic Heavy Metal
Label:Dying Victims Productions
I lately spent some time listening to the MEGATON SWORD’s latest release. Their “Niralet” Mini LP generated quite an impact in the underground Epic Metal scene, so I was basically curious to notice if the band could deliver the goods for one more time and if they would manage to offer us music much more inspired and into to the point compared to the “Niralet” stuff. And well… they did it. This time they focus even more on the European Power Metal roots, influenced by the Teutonic side of the genre. Those influences are combined with those classic mid tempo -and faster- Epic Metal parts which are the perfect link for the obscure Epic Metal universe from USA that the band worships anyway. And you know what? The result works! I have to admit that the band is presenting a a very interesting musical result. To me their music sounds much more complete, solid and on the same time diverse, compared to the “Niralet” stuff. I really enjoyed the record and I would recommend it to all the fans of sword ‘n’ sorcery music stuff. All hail Swiss Steel!
