ELVENKING – RED SILENT TIDES (REVIEW)

Out now on AFM Records

For your weekly dose of sword & sorcery, look no further than Elvenking.

Power metal with light medieval and folky overtones. Yes, there’s the endless rolling bass drum, the guitar fills that come straight from Spinal Tap’s “Stonehenge” and the busy arrangements. But there’s also strong melodies and harmonies and a singer who isn’t straining. Some of the songs are a bit convoluted, but overall the flow is pretty good.

A decent melodic metal album if not particularly original.
