Kreagen's first demo proposes a well-balanced hybrid of 80s-sounding heavy metal (aka traditional) and modern European power metal. The singer reminds me a little of Mob Rules' singer on the "Savage Land" album. The vocals never go overboard and are a perfect fit for the music which is a bit "tame" in that it's not overly aggressive (not much, really) and has a very catchy, melodic and even sorrowful side to it. Without going down the hard rock route, these songs could very well be appreciated by people who are usually not into metal; they have an "easy listening" side to them, and in this particular case it's not a bad thing. These guys know how to write songs and how to play them and these three songs could probably end up on a full-length album without needing much, if any improvement. The first two songs are mid to fast-paced while the closer "Wish" is more of a power ballad that clocks in at over six minutes (a little bit too long for my case, but a good song nonetheless.) Now let's see if they can keep the quality up with a full album. :)
