STORMRIDER
STORMRIDER
First Battle Won
(Karmageddon Media)
46:06min

To make a long story short, STORMRIDER are not - as their name might suggest - "Raise the steel, kill the dragon"-style Power Metal but a HYPOCRISY / AMON AMARTH rip off produced by Tommy Tägtgren. Since it is bad enough that there are the originals (haha, just kiddin') I consider STORMRIDER superfluous yet fans of this kind of music might love it. The Swedish band offers catchy Death Metal with Black Metal elements, primitively written lyrics about waging war against posers, medieval battles and Viking god Odin, blend aggression and melody as so many other bands did before and come across neither extremely good nor extremely bad. Does the stuffed Metal scene of today really need releases like that? Additional infos, sounds and stuff here www.stormrider.se and here www.karmageddonmedia.com.
