Sweden's Supreme Majesty kept the best for last with their solid third album, Elements Of Creation, and people interested in the style should try and hunt down a copy, as it will please anyone who ever sang wholeheartedly to albums by Dream Evil, Dragonland, Dreamland, or Dionysus (these guys need some new words – and letters). From the moment it begins, this is pompous Power Metal of the finest order, with fat neo-classical leads, sweeping choruses, engaging riffs, and saccharine synths. Everything the band did before came together here with perfect cohesion; the AOR elements blended seamlessly with their metal sensibilities, and the musicianship as a whole became so much tighter and more interesting. Hell, even Joakim Olsson sounds spectacular.
The songs range from triumphant stompers like "King Of Warriors", which sounds an awful lot like Celesty, to heavier, riff-based numbers such as "Spellbound", "My Revenge" and the gritty "Dawn Of The Dead". The best track here is the fabulous opener "Soulseeker", which kicks off with an excellent riff followed by the band's finest chorus. With a severely memorable middle section, this track sums up everything Supreme Majesty has at their disposal, and it's essential for hardcore Power Metallers. In all, if you're looking for quality releases in this genre you need to get on this as soon as you can.
