Frozen Crown appeared out of nowhere in 2017 and with last year's The Fallen King they managed to impress and achieve notoriety in the power metal world. Not a year after that beautiful, beautiful album, here they are again with Crowned in Frost, the definitive message that these Italians are here to be huge. Counting on the same lineup as the debut, but this time around with a more diverse set of tracks, the band showcases yet again a scary amount of sexy riffs and some mesmerizing vocals by the already recognizable Giada "Jade" Etro.

Tracks like "Neverending", "Battles in the Night" and "Lost in Time" follow the same winning formulas seen on The Fallen King by being fast, uplifting and a little bit theatrical, even, while some new elements have been added and the amount of epic passages here is more evident, like on "Forever" and the title track. However, the songwriting seems a little less inspired and the overall product feels a bit rushed, and consequently the songs aren't as catchy and memorable as in their previous effort.

Crowned in Frost is a powerful statement that Frozen Crown is one of the best acts to emerge in the past few years, and will definitely be one of the best in the whole power metal scene someday. This doesn't surpass their debut only because that shit was out of this world, but there are plenty of killer moments here to make it one of the most impactful power metal albums of 2019 so far. Mark my words: these Italian kids will be monstrous in the future.
