Dream Evil - The Book Of Heavy Metal

On one hand this is some great rip-roaring power metal and on the other hand it is just way too paint-by-numbers. Very much the same dilemma Primal Fear have been struggling through. I see younger power metal fans getting into this a lot more than those of us who have heard these riffs and song ideas thousands upon thousands of times before over the last 20 years. Don’t get me wrong, this is still good rifftastic stuff for furious headbanging - they just don’t pull it off as convincingly as Dragonforce and Hammerfall. On Century Media Records.
