Like a Norwegian Justin Bieber, PelleK - the band's lead singer, rose to fame by singing in homemade videos on YouTube. But, unlike the "Beibmeister", PelleK prefers music of the heavier sort; particularly power and symphonic metal. And now, after years of amateur online videos, PelleK has teamed up with Damnation Angels from across the sea, to produce one of his first professional releases.

Rating: 8 A great first album. I love Pellek's voice, he's the man. And the rest of the band does a good job doing the standard symphonic metal thing, but the orchestrations are very powerful and moving at times. Reborn sounds a lot like Kamelot, and I love the Asian influence on Pride (The Warrior's Way), very stirring songs in general. Pellek may not have the most amazing voice in the entire metal universe, he's a step down from Daniel Heiman, but it's very emotive.

A great first album. I love Pellek's voice, he's the man. And the rest of the band does a good job doing the standard symphonic metal thing, but the orchestrations are very powerful and moving at times.

Pellek may not have the most amazing voice in the entire metal universe, he's a step down from Daniel Heiman, but it's very emotive.

Good to have an album that is clearly vocally led. The guitars stay in the background giving the vocals and the excellent orchestrations room to stand out. Reminds me of different bands throughout the album, but still has its own fresh identity. Much needed in the stale Power metal genre at the moment.

I can hear Daniel Heiman in the last track, but the rest of the album is PelleK's own style. I hope we will hear a lot more from him in the future. If this band stays together the future will be bright, as they have a lot of potential.
