Return to the Past
Style: Power Metal
Release date: November 23rd 2010
Playing time: 44:18

"Return to the Past" is without a doubt one of the best Danish power metal album in quite some time, and an album that should help Seven Thorns establish themselves as one of Denmark's leading power metal bands with ease. I have been living with this album for the past three months and whenever I return to the same issues pops up; where is the originality and why are they so heavily influenced by German Power Metal?

But put that aside and you end up with one the finest power metal albums made in Denmark in ages, and sure they are heavily influenced by Helloween, Freedom Call and Gamma Ray as well as a few neo-classical bands, but they do try to put a twist of their own on the songs. And with great success I might add.

This album has all the ingredients any fan of (German) power metal will be looking for in abundance, and the album is well played and produced, so what more can a power metal fan ask for...?
