Grab your sword and head towards the North – well, the band name and the album title give you a very good idea of what to expect here. Melodic powerful Viking Metal, with obvious musical roots in German 80´s Speed Metal, e.g. Blind Guardian, Running Wild or Helloween (the Kai Hansen era). Yet singer Lars Ramcke, despite his high voice, manages something I really appreciate, his timbre doesn´t wreck my nerves. On the contrary, I am indeed positively surprised by this third album of Stormwarrior, even though I am not quite a fan of their genre. One of the reasons is that they manage to avoid Kitsch with some excellent details, e.g. the Norwegian (?) lyrics for “Lion Of The Northe”. Another reason, their songs are indeed ear candy with fantastic choruses, just listen to “Metal Legacy”. Well, I should mention that their lyrics are somewhat inspired by Manowar, the latter track is a good example. For some this might be another reason to buy this album, for me it was a bit rough to cope with… still, a great CD, therefore
