The Advent

Rated 3.78/5 (75.56%) (9 Votes)

This is some pretty cool old-school heavy metal heavily influenced by Iron Maiden – so much so in fact that, if it weren't for the vocals, some of the songs would fit well on an 80s Maiden album albeit played a bit faster: Coven play it faster and harder than their main influence. Lots of cool melodies and solos, as one would expect, make the music here very entertaining and somewhat addictive. My big beef is the vocals. They're too high-pitched and the accent just hurts. No matter how much I tried, this makes me cringe every time. Still, I keep playing this sucker because the music rules so much. Check it out if you think you can get past the vocals.
