Metal Reigns Supreme
(Majestic Union Records)
61:53min

First I thought "Metal Reigns Supreme" is a fucking Power Metal sampler, because the cover art features a musclepacked barbarian holding up the torch of Metal, but the music counts... and here I see once again the problem most Metal sampler have: bands with extremely different styles (Power to Death and Black Metal), some real good acts meet some really awful bands. So "Metal Reigns Supreme" is one of those fifty-fifty affairs, there are some highlights like CREMATION (NL, great old school Death), MAELSTRÖM (Norway, good mid temp Death Metal), BÄD INFLUENCE (professional melodic Power Metal), CLAMOR (French groovy Death Metal), NOCTURNAL (GER, ultra-raw and primitive Black / Thrash / Rock à la MEGIDDO, ALASTOR) or ROYAL QUEST (Greece, who have a funny Folk / Classic / Power Metal style). On the other hand there are awful acts like KING (his 'Metal Anthem' is one of the worst songs I've ever heard), OSH, HORRESCO REFERENS (who even copy a MEGADETH riff), TEUTONIC or UNHOLY ARCHANGEL (shitty Black / Death). Well, it's up to you if you like to support the underground by buying this sampler, I honor the attempt of Majestic Union Records to put out a valuable Metal compilation, but it could not convince me.
