Warrior Path

Rated 3.67/5 (73.33%) (6 Votes)

Warrior Path is a Greek band that has done a nice job combining an early 80s US metal sound with a NWOBHM vibe on their self-titled debut album. They have epic cuts ("The Hunter"), more accessible anthems ("Sinnersworld") and ballads worthy of rotation on Headbanger's Ball ("Dying Bird of Prey") all with catchy vocal lines and nifty twin-guitar riffing and lead work. The songwriting is excellent, and all the songs have an energy that grabs you from the outset and doesn't let go. There isn't a weak song on the album though the decision to end with two ballads in a row is an odd one. An album that gallops out of the gate, trots across the finish line. I guess a little creative shuffling on your music player of choice would be a quick solution. Regardless of sequencing, Warrior Path is a strong debut for a band I will be watching closely in the future. Fans of bands ranging from Omen and Manowar to Pretty Maids and Shok Paris should be spinning this.
