It has a mix of everything fans of the previous album would expect, with some of the most varied and dynamic songwriting in the band’s career, while still delivering tons of great speedy and melodic power metal.
Despite what their name might suggest, Elvenstorm aren’t a fantasy power metal band at all. In fact, even their lyrics are much darker than fans of the genre would expect
Unsurprisingly, they have once again delivered 11 songs that are absolutely phenomenal on their own, while flowing together perfectly.
I say it all the time, but as good as everything else is, the most important aspect of an album is the songwriting,
this album is a slight departure from Hellmade, as I remember that album mostly being classic heavy metal, with a slightly modern twist, as well as the occasional power metal influences, where Decadence Deluxe is an evener balance between heavy metal and modern power metal
While I’ve seen Millennial Reign described as a US power metal band, that isn’t entirely the case, as their music definitely includes some elements one wouldn’t expect from that genre.
Whether it’s bringing on a musical guest, watching founding member Thomas Youngblood on guitar, or enjoying and accepting Tommy Karevik on vocals, they always keep us entertained.
It happens from time to time. I’d wager those that have loved him all along will still dig this one, and those that maybe felt the same as myself might want to give this one a shot.
One of the better bands to emerge from this side of the genre in recent years is Circle of Silence.
