"Deathbringer" is a crisp, well structured Heavy Metal album with a heavy breath of old-school style but with a voluminous, modern production which serves to kick the songs yet further forwards. "Deathbringer" is an absolutely pure Heavy Metal album with thirteen ass-kicking songs all comprising of stunning riffs, hammering drums and rounded off with neck-breaking rhythms. It's an album, which gets the adrenaline rushing, with a passion manifested in every second of the music. It is crowned by powerful, energetic vocals, which give the songs a slightly rough, NWOBHMlike touch. Notable in this aspect is the great cover version of the Tygers Of Pan Tang classic "Gangland", in which singer Filip "Flype” Lemmens comes very close to the original. And we still haven't mentioned the swelteringly brilliant guitar playing. The racing beginning of "Combat Metal" reminds one of Sabaton without any fiddly keyboards, whilst "Thunder Will Roll" holds several parallels to Mystic Prophecy in its clouds. It's a real thumper with enormous tempo and is definitely one of the album's highlights. The somewhat hymn-like configuration of "To The Battle" continues at speed and is one to listen out for when played live. Not one single track of the thirteen songs leaves unfulfilled wishes of the most ardent metal heart and so there is no question that "Deathbringer" is a more than worthy successor to its highly praised predecessor. True- and old school metalheads will be enthralled from the first to the last, that is the true verdict.
