Cheesy band name, and the music is just as cheesy, if not more, and it's a hell of a lot of fun. How to put this... Take Manowar, Herman Frank, Majesty, Sabaton, Hammerfall and other bands of that ilk and put them all in a blender, and you get All for Metal. Very uplifting, fist-pumping, singalong, head-bopping, headbanging and foot-tapping kind of stuff. This is insanely catchy stuff. It's been done before, there are no surprises here, but the catchiness and even epicness are powerful enough to raise the dead and get them headbanging rather than eat people. My only beef with it is that it ends on an OK ballad, and I find that ending an album on a ballad rarely works, no matter how good it is—this one is nothing special, but it's competent. Melodic and powerful, positive-sounding, this stuff is infectious. If you like super cheesy metal that makes you skip an expensive stop in the cheese department at the grocery store, Legends is bound to make your day. Sometimes you just need some positive and fun music, and Legends delivers.
