If you have never heard of Battle Axe, don’t be alarmed. I’d never heard the name either.
Evoking images of a youthful Joe Elliot complete with Def Leppard’s multi layered vocal harmonies there is a sense that former vocalist with Voodoo Six, Henry Rundell, has joined a band far far more suited to his voice than that of his former colleagues
The first notable difference is that this album feels a little more serious than the TRELLEBORG one. Where that one was colorful and fun in places, DANCE OF DRUIDS is dark, angry and a lot more sinister. There is still a thick layer of Symphonic style metal to be found, but the death and black metal elements are the predominant sounds that you will hear.
