The third album of these Finns from Haapajärvi and I see before a double-edged sword. On the one side "Requiem Forever" is fun, they make plenty of us of the keyboard, singer Jouni Nikula's voice is very varied, just like the music overall, „Possessed By Power“ almost sounds a bit like Gravedigger... and on the other hand a lot of the time it's just too much of a good thing. Jouni's voice sounds almost like Jarkko Ahola (Teräsbetoni) and that is quite annoying indeed. Most of the songs on the album are very catchy, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but some of the songs go a bit far and sound suitable for radio. I wouldn't be surprised if I heard a song like "Violate" at the gym (aside from the fact that I don't actually go to the gym ;-)).
This album is background powermetal, suitable for parties, but not much more than that.
