I hear some doom metal here and there throughout this album, but as a whole it’s more like a slower, brooding version of thrash metal with slight progressive tendencies. The guitars have that really thick lower-end sound and when they mix it up with the deep bass grooves there is plenty of meat in the sound…
That’s a bit sad, but it doesn’t detract the overall impression of a really good melodic metal album, which is performed and presented very well. Magnus delivers again strong melodies, amazing guest singers and of course a demonstration of his skills as a guitar player AND vocalist. Fans of Magnus and his former projects as well as melodic metal fans should buy “Free Fall” without a doubt!
