2017 release. It's been an impressive journey for Bloodbound: The Swedish power metal commando has become more and more popular in recent years. All this falls back on talent and hard work: Since 2005 Bloodbound has not only released six studio albums and a Live DVD/CD, they have also toured with giants such as Sabaton, HammerFall and U.D.O. - in the process winning over a very devoted and loyal fanbase of metalheads. War Of Dragons is basically a continuation of the successful Stormborn (2014), but offering more fast-paced tracks, without lacking the anthemic feel the band is known for. Bloodbound are masters in combining melody with power and War Of Dragons perfectly displays the evolution that the band has gone through since their debut Nosferatu was let loose.
Bloodbound from Sweden have become a constant institution in the realm of Power Metal. “War Of Dragons” is their latest release and it deals with – surprise surprise – dragons. More cliché is actually not possible! But cliché doesn’t matter. It is the music that matters, and the music is well-done. In 2017, Bloodbound play Power Metal with bombastic touch, comparable to their Swedish brothers Sabaton or Hammerfall at times of “Crimson Thunder”. For sure, the brothers Olsson an their buddies do not re-invent Metal, but they know what they do and they do it well. Therefore all fans of bands like Sabaton, Hammerfall or Avantasia should check out this one!
"Dragons of the North" was originally released in 1996, the golden era for Norwegian extreme metal. As one of the pioneers, Einherjer have been in the forefront of an exploding genre for more than two decades. 20 years later, Einherjer presents you "Dragons of The North XX", a re-recorded version of a cult classic for the older generation, and a hidden gem for new fans of Viking Metal. As a Viking Metal band, Einherjer's goal has always been to respectfully convey the northern myths and history to a wide audience. But also to take their heritage back from people who try to corrupt it.
