A great start to 2020 for power metal. I’d love to be able to see Brothers of Metal live!
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!
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.
