Force of Evil – Black Empire – Review

Black Empire (Escapi Music)
by Scott Hefflon

Jesus, this is a parade of cliches, and with two Merciful Fate guitarists in the fold, you’d hope they could come up with better riffs, better songs, and less horrid lyrics. I heard “Candyman” chanted and “night comes calling” or something, and I just couldn’t stomach any more. Produced by legendary metal producer Neil Kernon (Priest, Queensrÿche, Nevermore) who must’ve been having a bad day.
