If the fantasy-based Symphonic Power Metal of Celesty and Kaledon appeals to you, then Fogalord's A Legend to Believe In is going to be right up your alley. The band is Italian and the album is on Limb Music so you can be assured the sound quality and performances are all top-notch. The vocals are mid to high pitched but not annoyingly so. Fogalord put the accelerator to the floor from the outset and rarely let it up. Even songs that are meant to be breaks in the action have fast-paced parts. There are some occasional female vocals and alternative instruments (most likely sampled) but Fogalord stick to the basic formula with the guitars out front and the keyboards in the support role. This makes the album rather heavy for Italian Symphonic Power Metal, which is welcome.

Fogalord play the style the way it is meant to be played. Their songs are exciting and energetic. The album contains nothing new but fans of this style should be all over A Legend to Believe In.
