Power of Metal.dk Review

Forever Storm
Style: Heavy powermetal
Release date: 24 November, 2013
Playing time: 62:11

This is the second album by this Serbian metal band. I'm not familiar with their debut album, but this one is an album that surely will find its way to some metal maniacs. The style on this album is a combination of European power metal, some speed metal, thrashy riffs, but also few melodic happy metal parts.

The first song is an intro that could have been on an Iced Earth album. Immediately after that the song "Mother" starts with heavy riffing. It is a fast song and the rather in front of the mix guitar riffs see to it that it sounds very heavy. Responsible for the vocals is Stefan Kovacevic and I have to say that he does quite a good job. He has a powerful voice with enough aggression and it sticks to the music. Sure, not every note is clear, but that doesn't bother me at all. Listening to the songs, names like Gamma Ray, Mystic Prophecy, Iced Earth, Space Eater, Helloween and even Paradox because of the riffs enter my mind. I'm sure the album will be liked by the fans of these bands. What I like personally is that although the band sounds sometimes rather catchy, bombastic and melodic, their songs are very riff oriented. That makes them sound heavier than a lot of their genre mates.

Interesting enough to check them out!
