AFM-Records released today the official video if the song "Battle In The Sky" from the upcoming Bloodbound album War Of Dragons.
Strombringer.at releases the first review of the new Bloodbound album.
Because the review is written in German (or better Austrian :-), we have tried to translate once the whole document for you.
Short spoken Intro.
This song brings full speed from the beginning on and starts with an epic chorus. Also in hereafter the tempo stays fast and our good old Patrik shows, why he is one of the best of his guild. Funny to see how Bloodbound combine her typical trademarks here a little with the style of her Swedish colleagues of Sabaton. "Battle In The Sky" is a more than only a worthy opener.
Also the second track welcomes us at the beginning with a chorus which reminds a little bit of "Ghost of division". In my eyes it is really no crime, to orientate itself by other bands, to try something new and to maintain still the own style. Especially this is well succeed by the swedes in this song.
The title track sounds rather like the small (or, nevertheless, the big one?) brother of "Wishmaster". The parallels are unmistakable, however, it never looks stolen or willful badly made. It is very charmingly and shows Bloodbound in an very epic way, I have never recognized before.
Its beginning is, compared with the other songs, slowly with a short flute intro, but then it goes on with hard double bass. In the following, the number still presents itself more pure and as a contrast program to the three songs before. "Silver Wings" reveals rather the kitschy and very classical side of power metal. However, its refrain is absolutely a catchy tune which kind of only the swedes can write.
You want the absolute hymn of the album? Here you have them! With this title headbanging is pre-programmed and the number should not disappoint you. The quiet hymnal inclined bridge offers a great change over to the brute chorus which beats down on the listener like quick punches. I would also like to emphasise, the orchestral arrangements which were put absolutely brilliantly in scene what applies in general for the whole album. This song would be allowed to leave live an effect like a colossal wrecking ball, because it bangs totally your brain away.
With the beginning it seems to hear a song from Nightwish, then Rob Halford starts to scream into the microphone. At this point the listener does not know how he should stop his euphoria, in view of this huge load of power. With full speed this song blow us away, guitars full of speed and heavy keyboard sound will come over the listener. At the latest with the catchy formed refrain everybody knows, the song comes up easily to the top hits like "Moria" or "Iron Throne".The Swedes trump once more with a divine chorus, which might be harder to be expelled from the ear canals than an inflammation of the middle ear.
The sound is bombastic, with right volume there roars the ground and the neighbours barricade themselves in view of this blast. The two great talented Olsson brothers at their battleaxes uses a numerous of technical delicacies in the successful compositions and belong with certainty to the best musicians in the melodic metal genre. In the middle section it seems the song could be written also from Avantasia, but in general the song could still be a musical continuation of "When The Kingdom Will Fall". A terrifically stamping monster with majestic choirs.
A song in which the accelerator is completely stepped. At the beginning a bit unspectacular, develops this song in fact of his complicated arrangements and hardness still to a catchy tune which pulls the listener immensely in his spell.
The song breathes at times more Helloween spirit than the pumpkin heads since more than one decade itself did. To compare Bloodbound with other band like Hammerfall or Stratovarius is absolutely appropriated with this song. It is nice what incredibly high dynamism this song shows and binds the listener with its kind full of pressure completely to himself. Already after the first restrained tones no more eye remains dry. At the latest from the beginning of the refrain the fan of melodic power metal has thick tears of joy in the eyes. One of the highlights of the album.
Whether you believe it or not, "Starfall " has at the beginning again a light Nightwish touch. As soon as the song starts, it goes again in the usual direction. The tempo is throttled a bit and gives some time for breathing deeply to the listener, before the final song powers out again full speed.
Fascinates by the heaviness and perfectly coordinated song harmonies, like songs from Avantasia or Masterplan, in addition a mighty, fantastic grooving. A banging hymn with an awesome refrain like we knew from Freedom Call with additional heavy double bass drums. A mighty song and a worthy end for this album.
The album surprises not really, it justifies only the value which one has put away for men already in the approach. This time one has the feeling that of all one more corner has become better, more mature, more neatly, more bombastically and points harder. In addition an absolutely strong production, infers with ambitious songwriting which knows how to like, with a huge number of catchy hooks. All twelve songs are fresh, unused super hymns which every heart of a melodic lover makes be beating. Bloodbound have remained loyal to itself and have strictly followed up on the new album, in contrast to a lot of other bands in this category. They followed and perfected their way, and renounced unnecessary experiments.
Strombringer: Bloodbound - War Of Dragons - Track by track
Today the band announced the name of the new drummer. His name is Kalle Löfgren from Falun/Sweden.
