Still more Germanic power metal, hardly surprising from a band called Stormwarrior that features song titles such as "Heavy Metal Fire", "Sons Of Steele", "Heroic Deathe", and the like. And, frankly, it's hard to take band like this seriously, what with stage names such as Thunder Axe, Black Sword, and the like, particularly since they themselves do take this seriously. Early Helloween is the prime reference here, with traces of Manowar and Running Wild thrown in as well. One thing going for them is that Lars Ramcke's vocals are more throaty, meaning he's far less prone to wail and scream like many of his contemporaries. Elsewhere, though, all the trademarks of prime Germanic speed/power metal are here, with plenty of speedy riffs and anthemic choruses that fans of this style crave. So, strictly a band for the converted, but at least they do perform the style well.
