INTENSE Second Sight

The first full album by this British metal band and it sees them enter more power metal territory than the say the earlier Dark Season EP.

There are definite hints of Iron Maiden in here, mainly in the twin guitar arrangements and Sean Heatherington can turn on the menacing vocals when needed, just get a listen to Seeds Of Betrayal. A song that draws you in with an acoustic intro before the power chords come crashing in.

Album highlight for me has to be Autumnheart, a slow brooding track that reminds me of prime time Demon, of the most underrated bands ever. The track also cleverly uses keys for effect and plenty of guitars electric and acoustic. The Winged is another cracker, fast and slow passages segue easily into each other. A song that could become a live favourite! Full fury of metal on Collision Of Destinies, which is underpinned by a tight bass/drum riff.

Definitely a step up for the band, with top-drawer production courtesy of Threshold's Karl Groom. Along with Power Quest, Dragonforce, Threshold and Mercury Rain they prove there is growing strength in the UK metal scene.
