Greek epic/power metallers formed in 2002 return with a special limited edition 7” single titled “The Crown and the King”.
Side A features a brand new track (“The Crown of Evermore”) taken off the band’s upcoming album and Side B features a cover of the Accept classic “The King”.
Limited to 250 copies, the 7” single will be released on March 5th.
'The Crown Of Evermore' starts with some nice keyboard playing then joined by the rest of the band, fast drums and some epic guitar playing go to create what I can only describe as an 80's sounding power metal band who grew up on Rainbow.
'The King' is a slightly more commercial sound with a slight nod to Iron Maiden lurking.
Quite typical of power metal but fortunatley not the kind of overblown rubbish we tend to get forced to listen to these days.
For fans of: Helloween, Rainbow, Kilmara, Wolfpakk, Edens Curse
