After an unspectacular debut, Swedish crew Supreme Majesty returned with their sophomore effort Danger, which made more of an impression due to an overall better sound and execution. While their first album was more of a straightforward romp in Dragonland/Hammerfall territory, this brought a higher dosage of melody and AOR into the mix, elements the band would develop further for their third and best album, Elements Of Creation. Danger starts well with a bunch of tunes that sound almost like Dream Evil if they were fronted by Jonas Heidgert and had Power Quest's Steve Williams on the keys. The melodies, both vocal and synth-led, are incredibly sugary, even on the heavier, double-kicked tracks like "Heroes Of Our Lands" and "Fallen Star".

During the mid-paced title track and the awesome "After Midnight", Supreme Majesty go all out AOR, which huge choruses and powerful vocals from Joakim Olsson, but due to a production over-saturated with keys and reverb, the album becomes less engaging towards the end, forcing you to reach for something else. Curious Power Metal fans will enjoy this lost article from the days of yore, but for the best slice of what Supreme Majesty has to offer, their third album gets the gold.
