metal band Persuader was formed in 1997; a demo called “Visions and
Dreams” was released the year after. A contract was signed with the
Loud N´Proud label and a split CD with Freternia came out in 2000.
Later the same year the first Persuader full-length album was released -
a great Power Metal album called “The Hunter”, but soon after Loud N´Proud
went bankrupt and nothing was heard from Persuader before 2004 when the
great “Evolution Purgatory” album was released
on the Noise label.
2005 guitarist Emil Norberg and singer Jens Carlsson joined Savage
Circus for their “Dreamland Manor” album and with great success, so
I thought that Persuader had split up, and then a few weeks ago I
received a brand new Persuader CD called “When Eden Burns”, and yes
they have a new record label again this time it’s Dockyard 1.
continues with their aggressive, melodic and uncompromising Power Metal,
there is nothing new under the sun here, they still sound like Blind
Guardian did ten years ago, and that’s a pity because I really think
that these five guys have a lot of potential.
have to say that I prefer the Blind Guardian albums.
tracks: “When Eden Burns” & “Doomsday News”.
