The Nightmare Within
Style: Power/Thrash Metal
Release date: January 28th 2008

Last week I bought the new album of the German band Sencirow. This album has a good production done by Andy Classen. The music is heavy fast power-metal, sometimes with some thrash influences. The first name that came into my mind was Lefay (I believe it is Morgana Lefay again). Especially the vocals of Kensington are in Lefay-style.

The music is a hotchpotch of Morgana Lefay (but faster), Iced Earth, Destruction and Rage, with a sauce of U.S. metal. "Feeding the Rage" is a high speed song that could be written by any 80's speed metal combos from the USA. Other songs like "God's Creation Failed" are more U.S. Metal based. But in general the tempo is high and the guitars are heavy. The only thing about the band that I miss is originality, but where do we find this today?

If you like the bands I already mentioned, certainly check this album out.
