Rating:
7.0
The saga of Ingloryhammer continues: a couple of years after his surprise departure, under circumstances that are rich in rumor and scant of information, vocalist Thomas Laszlo Winkler has done what he threatened to do and gone solo with the power of the universe and a big dragon and maybe a sword and some clouds and lightning bolts and whatnot.

I understand where your coming from, it's the kind of metal that's ridiculously cheesey and flowery, but it's very enjoyable and catchy. I just have to listen to it quietly as I yet slighty apprehensive about being laughed at

Beast In Black is only cheesy power metal band I'm not ashamed to love. It's just so good that I don't care what people think

I suggest a new subgenre tag for this kind of bands - silly-metal.

The songwriting is kinda ridiculous and the cover art is too, but I guess that's the whole point. It's silly but a fun and powerfully uplifting album.

you can also notice the immense talent of Robert Trujillo, who's been in both IG and Suicidal Tendencies.

He was with Ozzy's band for a while. Also I think he was a good addition for Metallica. I know Metallica is the poster band for hatred (it's cool to hate them), but Trujillo deserves all the respect he gets.

Tbf to him, he's a very good bass player indeed, and has shown that throughout his career. Being the bass player for Metallica is a privilege for any bass player, let alone Ozzy. It shows just had how admired he must have been to have been given the position.

Silly metal for sure. But it's very enjoyable nonetheless, I just have to ignore that it's a one-up attempt.

Fitting, as there's a few burgers called the Angus burger.

For anyone who's interested, the track order for following the story is 7, 2, 8, 9, 5, 1, 10, 11, 4, 3, 6, 12 (bonus track).
No idea why they put the tracks in the non-story order, booklet says it's for "having the most party times with the music". Says for following the story, use the morse codes in the booklet,
starting with track ' --... '

Probably because some people like this tongue in cheek type of power metal, power metal is still a popular subgenre of metal.

Exactly. If you like flamboyantly over the top power metal, you'll probably like this.

Have you understood MS rating system?

7.1 isn't a "big" rating as "big" as 9 and 10 are. While John and M C cleared the air about enjoying "cheesy over-the-top power metal". It's as fun as listening to Korpiklaani/modern Sabotan/Manowar/you should know this drill.

People have fun with power flower metal.

While I understand the attraction, I do not like this band. Euro-power is very hit and miss for me.

I don't think that this power metal has any relationship with Sabaton and Manowar's power metal. Manowar's lyrics are fun but the music is great. Here music is nothing. Also I don't say that 7.1 is a big rating generally but specifically for this album.
