Black Majesty - Sands Of Time
Black Majesty has begun their crusade with a sampler that was released in 2002. In 2003 they released their first full-length album, entitled Sands Of Time. Metalrage received a copy and when it landed on the floor in my house, I first had to listen to it carefully. Damn, this is music that is not what I usually play. I can say it cleanly, Iím a death metal fan, but with a wide musical taste. Black Majesty make a style of Heavy metal influenced by bands like Judas Priest and Hammerfall but without the ballsquashing high voice. When I read the song titles and heard the first song, I was a little bit amused by the stereotype heavy metal thought. The songs are all in that plain heavy metal scheme, but the voice of the vocalist was different though. I expected a high squeak, but it turned out that the voice was deeper. Sometimes though itís time for the high screams, but I wasnít affected by it, while normally I cannot stand this shit. That means enough for me, finally a power/heavy metal band which arenít depending on their squeaking gay vocalist. The music is more in the thrashy direction, but the elements of bands like Hammerfall and Masterplan are quite high. When I listened to Guardian for instance, it reminded me strongly to Crimson Thunder by Hammerfall. The album is just a fine produced album tightly followed by the rules of heavy metal. That means that there have to be at least 2 ballads, 3 mid tempo songs, and the rest has to be blasting. I donít mind this kind of production and I was impressed by the vocalist. As I mentioned earlier, this is finally a power metal band that inspired me to listen more of this music. I am not a lover of this music, but hey, itís a start. If you are a power metal fanatic, you wonít be disappointed when you buy this album. The guitar soloís are fast and technical, the rhythm is right and the songs all breathe fire and demise. Enjoy.
