Even though Induction’s history is not too long, the band has already experienced quite a bit. Formed in 2014 in the Czech Republic as Martin Beck’s Induction, the group delivered its self-titled debut album in 2019.

For a band that was just taking off, the emerging pandemic was anything but beneficial. The year 2022 became a kind of reboot for Induction. On the one hand, the group signed a contract with Atomic Fire Records and thus has a solid label with a passion for metal on its side. In addition, the line-up has changed dramatically. Tim Hansen, the son of Helloween legend Kai Hansen, is the only remaining member of the band, while the rest of the members joined the band this year. In addition, the band’s headquarters relocated to Hamburg, which also opened up new opportunities for Induction.

So with ‘Born from Fire’ the young band celebrates a kind of rebirth. With Hansen providing consistency on guitar, it was interesting to see how new singer Craig Cairns would fit in, following in the footsteps of Nick Holleman (ex-Vicious Rumors). To say it right away, Cairnes does a great job. With a clear and powerful voice, he leads through the eleven songs of the album and can compete with the greats of melodic power metal.

This also describes the musical surroundings of Induction. Melodic metal with a decent kick is what the quintet offers us. Fans of bands like Stratovarius should pay attention here. These five guys unerringly combine great melodies, well-done tempo changes, and heavy guitars to a very accomplished total. Songs like the anthemic ‘Fallen Angel’ may not be the reinvention of the wheel, but they still, have a fascination that one can not resist. The same applies to the rather bombastic ‘Order & Chaos’. Listening pleasure is guaranteed on this track.

If you are interested in great melodic metal with striking power, you should listen to Induction. It is worth it since the band made a strong step forward.
