Power Quest

Master of Illusion (Napalm)
by Scott Hefflon

Gee, think they're power metal? Four albums deep, first for Napalm, formed in 2001 by UK keyboardist Steve Williams after leaving Dragon Heart (now Dragonforce). Interested now? Yeah, these guys have the goods. Fans of Helloween, Gamma Ray, Stratovarious, Sonata Arctica, Angra, Blind Guardian, and all their many and varied offspring will find something to like here. No new ground is broken, but 20 years into the genre with so many great band treading this same terrain, jeez, how could anyone fine a patch to really call their own? So this is either every cliché in the book, or it's a solid new addition to a long line of great, catchy, poppy, talented classic heavy metal bands.

This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
