You don´t need to read the band info to realize right after the first few notes that this Portuguese band is totally into traditional metal. The debut album of this young band – which has gained a reputation as an excellent live act in their home country – gives kudos to Iron Maiden (in the Paul di Anno era), but there is also a portion of Power Metal, and Manowar seemed to have been an influence when it comes to writing lyrics. In other words – it´s totally Old School. The vocals remind you immediately of Blitz (Overkill), but unfortunately Paulo Brandão has not quite achieved total control of his voice yet – which becomes pretty obvious at the last track “Masters of the Night” - it seems he ran out of strength. Still, a remarkable debut and you should definitely keep an eye/ear on the future career of this act.
