When we think of metal from Iceland, undoubtably we think about black metal or something more dark and deep than power metal. Therefore, it is not very usual to hear about power metal bands from Iceland, which in itself made this release special, but Power Paladin made it even more special for the quality and dynamics they delivered to this album.

Listened to this on the rec of a mate. Added it to my 2022 list and started writing 'Not on MS', but by the time I hit submit, they'd been added!

Very catchy, but very repetitive within songs. OK if you really like PM I guess.

A name so long it extends to the length of a lane?

I think he meant to write "lame".
He later complained about the long band name in the "lame band name" thread.

It's been over 15 years since I last had that much fun listening to a power metal album.

The album cover is a bit wacky, it looks like something from a Disney movie, I'm curious to what it's going to sound like.

At first listen, it sounded like average Power Metal. With a couple more spins, the catchy choruses and riffs started to click and I ended up having a lot of fun listening to it. However, a couple of spins more and it started losing its magic, due to a bit of repetitiveness and lack of originality in general. Very enjoyable, solid album, 7.7 for me.

As catchy as Twilight Force's debut. I expected neoclassical parts and epic guitar-keyboard duets, but it's fine as it is.

Nothing groundbreaking, other than the fact that this is the first power metal album from Iceland with any significance. Still, it has enough personality of its own to be able to escape the one-on-one comparison with just one other particular power metal band.

It's a good power metal, better than I expected, certainly getting the Helloween influences, but the sound reminds me more so of Edguy. It's a good enjoyable listen but nothing stand out about it, but still sounds like a promising band for the future of power metal.

This is this the funniest album I've listened to. Two Legend of Zelda songs in them. Sign on the Cross riff in the first song. And the album cover is just the icing on the cake. God this album is so stupid I love it.

Album of the year for me (until now). Although the originality is relatively low, this album provides great melodies, rhythms and overall personality. I really like that the classic cheesiness is accompanied by a high tempo and that the lyrics is so inspired by the overall theme. Hoping for more in the future.

It's always great to work on a project with power metal on. The music itself is so soaring it just makes you keep going.
