Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken (Nuclear Blast)
by Scott Hefflon
Swedish power metal, but a glance at the cover shoulda made that clear, and almost anyone into power metal or falsetto-layered heavy metal already knows who these guys are. If I listen to this fruity stuff, I kinda like the fast stuff, like Sonata Arctica, cuz this is a little too prone to balladry, but to each their own. A decade strong. One of the best of the bunch, if yer into such things.
