Flames of Fire

Rated 3.38/5 (67.5%) (8 Votes)

This is pretty cool. Flames of Fire is a Scandinavian heavy metal band with members hailing from Sweden, Norway and Finland. My first impression was a bit lukewarm, but it didn’t take long for the album to grow on me. The music is traditional heavy metal with a bit of a happy power metal vibe to it, but really the backbone of this is firmly rooted in ‘80s heavy metal. Lots of catchy vocal lines that just beg for you to sing along. The singer has a powerful, kind of rough but clear voice that’s a perfect match here. I hear a lot of Maiden-style gallops here which really take me back to their ‘80s album though the songs aren’t the style that Maiden would write. Flames of Fire really aren’t inventing anything here, but the members have lots of experience under their belt and it shows on this quality album that’s sure to pick the interest of ‘80s metal fans who don’t mind a slightly more modern approach. It’s hard not to hit "play" again once this one is over.
