My personal review as a fan of HRH Metal IV
I think this would have been up there in my favourite albums of 2019 if I’d reviewed it last year. Baldrs Draumar are definitely a band you need to check out if you’re into your folk metal!
With plenty of track to dance, toe-tap and drink to, it’s a shame I won’t be able to see Ye Banished Privateers live any time soon…
So much fire, so much energy, so many memories, I was very glad I went with my heart and bought a ticket to this show. I went without my reviewer hat on for this show, but it was amazing first gig of 2020, so I had to document it.
I would love to be able to thank Sabaton in person for an amazing night where I conquered some of my inner mental demons, but I hope this review from a small review site run by little old me goes a little way to doing that.

A great start to 2020 for power metal. I’d love to be able to see Brothers of Metal live!
Yet another incredible edition of Warhorns Festival at The Trades in Rotherham. Don’t miss out on buying your tickets for 2020 now, otherwise you’ll miss out on some of the amazing bands already booked for next year!
Far from their Harry Potter themed power metal (which I am still a little disappointed they abandoned), I feel like Grimgotts have a potentially great future as a band together. They have their own take on power metal which is reminiscent of the Swedish power metal scene with bands such as Dragonland and Bloodbound springing to mind, but they add their own twist with the nautical themes which don’t dive straight into the pirate metal trope.

I absolutely love Gloryhammer, and music like this never fails to bring my joy on a sad day. Gloryhammer have stuck to their core style, harking back to elements and melodies of previous tracks, as well as bringing a new and exciting installment to their sage to save the Kingdom of Fife and the mighty City of Dundee.
Amon Amarth have successfully managed to try something new whilst still holding true to their roots and previous records. They have got the right balance between maintaining their sound while keeping it fresh, and that, in my opinion, is not always an easy thing to do, particularly for a band such as Amon Amarth who have such a distinctive sound and image.
Once again, Månegarm have produced another fantastic album. It’s new and fresh while still being true to their signature style. I hope that I am able to catch them live again very soon, as I am sure a lot more UK fans are!
