Starbourne Traveler

Rated 4/5 (80%) (2 Votes)

Sweden's Crystal Eyes continues to release excellent, crunchy power metal albums that fly under my radar. On 2019's Starbourne Traveler, we get treated to some consistently catchy, energetic songwriting that ranges from Accept's '80s riff mastery ("Gods of Disorder") to infectious hard rock/heavy metal in the vein of Pretty Maids ("Midnight Radio") to the downright over-the-top power metal of a band like Alestorm ("Rage on the Sea") and they do it all seamlessly so the album flows despite the stylistic changes. There isn't a bad song on the album and the sound is excellent. There isn't much more to say other than if you like power metal, get Starbourne Traveler.
