5.0 out of 5 stars (Hardly original but) Hard Rocking Fun!, 16 July 2007
This review is from: The Book Of Heavy Metal (Audio CD)
I get the impression when listening to this CD that Dream Evil listened to a bunch of Judas Priest and Ozzy Osborne albums and thought "we could do that!"....and so they have.

It's hardly a bad thing to sound like the mighty Priest. All the elements are in place, the high quality vocalist (whose range is very impressive), cheesy lyrics (the album starts with a high pitch screamed "METAAAAAAAAL!" what more can you ask for.....) and grinding guitars. It is PROPER old school metal.

There are similarities to other artists in this album too, "Unbreakable Chain" is very reminiscent of Zepplin's "Stairway to Heaven". The track "Chosen Twice" has the sort of operatic choral backing that would be quite at home (and perhaps better done) on a Nightwish album and on occaision Dream Evil's lead singer reminds me strongly of Dream Theater's vocalist James LaBrie.

Despite the fact that this album is very unoriginal it is still fantastic to listen to. In my opinion Metal should be, above all, entertaining. This offering from Dream Evil succeeds with this admirably. For fans of old school metal this is bloody good fun.
