English:

Since their debut ‘Nosferatu’ (2005), the Swedish Bloodbound released six albums. This ‘War Of Dragons’ is the continuation of their ‘Stormborn’ (2014), but more fast paced, without giving up the mix of melody and power.

After a spoken word intro, ‘Battle’ bursts out in an energetic, speedy, bombastic, melodic power attack with choir and sombre break. ‘Dragonheart’ is somewhat more restrained, catchy with a Hammerfall touch, and ‘War Of Dragons’ continues in the same vein, but more fast paced. ‘Silver Wings’ adds a folky, medieval touch on the speedy power with great solo towards the end, after which ‘Stand And Fight’ is a more straightforward rocker. ‘King’ is bombastic again, symphonic and fast, reminding of Rhapsody, with a small folky touch and rough vocals. ’Fallen Heroes’ is a symphonic bite of power with epic touch. ‘Guardians’ goes full speed ahead with merciless rushing drums and ‘Symphony Satana’ is comparable stuff. ‘Starfall’ is a heavier, darker piece of power with some flashing guitar towards the end, after which ‘Dragons’ shifts a few gears higher, with catchy chorus and another great guitar solo.

Sturdy power with symphonic accents and great voice!


Nederlands:

Sinds hun debuut ‘Nosferatu’ in 2005 bracht het Zweedse Bloodbound reeds zes albums uit. Deze ‘War Of Dragons’ ligt in het verlengde van hun ‘Stormborn’ (2014) , maar met snellere songs, zonder de mix van melodie en power uit het oog te verliezen.

Na de parlando intro, barst ‘Battle’ los in een energieke, speedy, bombastische, melodieuze power aanval met koor en sombere break. ‘Dragonheart’ is wat bezadigder, catchy met Hammerfall accent en ‘War Of Dragons’ ligt in het verlengde, maar is sneller. ‘Silver Wings’ legt een folky, middeleeuws accent op de speedy power met schitterende solo naar het einde toe, waarna ‘Stand And Fight’ meer rechttoe rechtaan rockt. ‘King’ is weer bombastisch, symfonisch, speedy en doet aan Rhapsody denken, met een klein folk accentje en ruige vocalen. ‘Fallen Heroes’ is een symfonische hap power met epische toets. ‘Guardians’ gaat voluit op speed met meedogenloos voortsnellende drums en
‘Symphony Satana’ is vergelijkbaar materiaal. ‘Starfall’ is een steviger, donkerder brok power met wat flitsende gitaar naar het einde toe, waarna afsluiter ‘Dragons’ in versnelling gaat, met catchy refrein en nog een schitterende gitaarsolo.

Stevige power met symfonische inslag en prachtstem!
