RockmusicRaider - Tales of the Kingdom of Fife - Album CoverHow to best describe this? Ah, yeah. The band calls it Heroic Fantasy Power Metal, no less. But it indeed feels like the beginning of the Kingdom of Cheese. This is what happens, when a Scottish pirate and a Swiss cheese artist come together to form a band. The début of the mighty Gloryhammer called Tales from the Kingdom of Fife happens. That’s what! 

Reminiscent of Hammerfall in many cases, the album for sure does not break any new ground. But whatever ground they break presents itself with an absolutely stellar enthusiasm and a technical prowess that puts other debuting bands to shame. Remember, these are the same guys, who just kicked it up a few notches in 2015 with Space 1992: The Rise of the Chaos Wizards.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider - Gloryhammer - Space 1992 - Album CoverNever judge anything by its looks! I tell ya. Don’t. The garish album art of the newest Gloryhammer album Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards with its purple pinkish hue and green Lego monster just got my teeth hurting in a heartbeat. And it is a good example why not. Gloryhammer present you with insanely catchy lines, melodies that will stick to you like honey in your hair, presenting their parodic #metal cheese with an enthusiasm and energy that will wither away the mighty egos of other bands to nothing. By Loki!

In short, Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards will just worm itself into your brain and take hold.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
