German band and quartet STORMHAMMER have released six previous albums, so this new one is number seven. Not bad! They are all about power metal, well, they call it modern power metal since they claim to have a “more modern sound and songwriting” this time. It sounds old enough to me, and by that I mean good.
And they also prove to be not only crazy metalhammers. There’s a quite soulful ballad entititled “Taken by the devil” (now that’s a title for a ballad, huh?) which proves qualities. The production is quite good as well, signed vocalist MATTHIAS KUPKA. Try it out, since this is quality power metal.
