The Rise Of Starlit Fires. This is the title the Finnish power metal band Force Majeure chose to give their 3rd album. The band wanted a longer name especially to hear how legendary Finnish radio host Klaus Flaming would pronounce it with his perfect pronounciation.
The Rise of Starlit Fires has eight epic and catchy heavy power metal tracks for you to enjoy. Let the speedy Apocalytic Hearts sweep over you, enjoy the straightforward catchiness of Pantheon of My Passion, or Gemini Rising. The AAA+ chorus of The Great Starfall will leave you floored. Eventually you might Finnish yourself off with the epic called the Darkening.
With this album hops onboard Finland’s best kept secret, vocalist Marcus Lång. The powerful voice of Marcus is the heavy metal jaegerbomb on top of premium quality compositions which make Force Majeure stand out in the line of metal bands.The album has been received very well, and ROCK TRIBUNE gives the album an impressive 8/10: “…Force Majeure finishes the album in the same style as their name indicates, and is a force too powerful to resist…!”.
POWERPLAY MAGAZINE throws in another 8/10 – “The small differences are definitely what makes this album, and every time and element of “Same old, Same old” threatens about to take hold, the band sit up, take notice and throw in a few curve balls and charge of down another path”.
“The singer Marcus Lång keeps the castrator in check and the album offers a surprisingly large scoop of well-produced and memorable songs with beautiful choruses.” – SWEDEN ROCK MAGAZINE
