A party band with sing a long anthems in their live arsenal ,this band are set to shoot down all comers in their way. See you down the front for their next show….. 7/10 (only because I know that their debut album is going to score significantly higher)
The bands trademark Progressive and dark sound is in full swing here and while there is enough accessibility and melodic goodness available here to please even the most demanding fans of the genre, it’s actually the progressive and moody aspects of the album that make it that little bit more special than most releases in the genre…
As much as Majesty seem to pay tribute to their heroes instead of working to distinguish themselves, in Thunder Rider they have made something that is simply too epic and too entertaining for me to be anything less than fully impressed with it. So while this album certainly won’t appeal to everyone, for fans of classic metal who like their music to be fun and ridiculously epic, but especially for fans of Manowar who want to hear something similar, this album is highly recommended.
