Well, I was totally wrong with that! I unpacked the CD and thought: "Cool, a new Deadlock CD." But that was a misconception, because not the band, but the CD is named Deadlock. Right after putting the CD on you would notice the mistake anyway, because this here is Melodic Metal at its best and nothing like Deadlock’s dark sounds. Sound influences for the Finns are traditional bands like Maiden (just listen to the guitar licks on Deadlock!), Dio and Dream Theater. Nothing wrong with those idols! And also musically those five Finns sound convincing. This is why they had the honour not just to open for, but also to play as backing band for Paul Di´Anno (ex-Iron Maiden). Finally, a good and diversified Metal CD.
