Powergame-Masquerade Review

“Legion Of The Dead,” comes in fast and heavy with duelling guitars, the drums start pounding along. The song is the perfect introduction into the album. The vocals bring energy and spring within the wider context. “Lucid Dreams,” is fast and galloping, bringing a feeling of early Iron Maiden to the fore. “Puppets On A String,” snarls and snakes. The riffs add an extra bite to proceedings, ensuring that the listener is hooked from the get go. “Powergame,” fast and furious, driving and a frenetic pace and not for one moment letting up. “Final Warning,” slow moving, gradually growing heavier and more epic as time progresses. “The Chase Of The Falcon,” an epic in two halves, fast and slow, the vocals are blinding producing something that is quite frankly amazing.

“For Those Who Died,” is an anthem, slowly growing with grooves and harmonies, deconstructing the images within the mind of the listener before building them up once more. “Baptised In Fire and Steel,” a rocker with edge and grit, the guitar licks are something phenomenal. “Masquerade,” tells the story of the world spinning around like madness. Bringing with it something impressive and dark. “Ghost Town,” slowly growing on the edge of sparks and light, before chasing the world. “Blackout,” a fitting closer.

The album is out on 18th January, 2019.
