Ostara Metal’s 2019 Review in Music
An amazing second edition of HRH Vikings, with an incredible announcement already for next year!
The Ferrymen once again have released their own brand of heavy metal onto the world in the form of A New Evil, combining fantasy, motivational, and lost love themes with hard hitting metal and slower, ballad-like sections. With the addition of Ronnie Romero’s outstandingly powerful vocals, it’s a formula that just can’t go wrong!
Chris (vocals, rhythm guitar) is a Peninsula War enthusiast, and you can definitely hear that in the lyrics. I have even learned a bit of history, including what a “Forlorn Hope” is! Forlorn Hope have their own sound, and it’s damn good. I’m hoping to hear a lot more from the band in the future, and I wish them the best of luck for going far in their music careers!
Forgotten North are definitely a band that would appeal to a lot of different people, and I would highly recommend to anyone interested in folk metal, or German music in general.
Wind Rose have capitalised on the aspects of their previous successful tracks and created an album based on those themes. With two tracks I don’t think I will ever get tired of (Drunken Dwarves and Diggy Diggy Hole), and the majority of the album being absolutely spot on!
