Staff review by
If you use to read my reviews on Metal Storm, you probably know that I'm really respectful toward Axel Rudi Pell. First as a musician because nobody can tell that he is not a great guitarist but also as a man because even if Axel is considered as a "guitar hero" he always simply acts as a member of his band and not like a poor egocentric leader. "Tales Of The Crown", his 13th album, is a new demonstration of what the band is able to do, something that I will call classy Metal. If you're not into ARP music I'm not sure that this new album will change your opinion about them but if you're a fan or just like classy Heavy Metal and melodic Hard Rock and still don't know this great combo, please don't miss this new release!
