The Inn Of Sorrowing Souls


Sweden's Breitenhold, yet another band helmed by the increasingly omnipresent Cederick Forsberg who handles all the instruments and vocals, plays pure Speed Metal of the melodic style pioneered by Helloween and fine-tuned more recently by the likes of Dragonforce. Forsberg has a high-pitched voice not unlike Kai Hansen circa Walls of Jericho, tears up the fret-board like Sam Totman and Herman Li and writes intricate yet accessible riffs that he plays at a million miles an hour. I don't hear much in the way of keyboards just a couple of guitar tracks (one playing the methodical major chord changes, the other the lightning-fast harmony lines) carrying the songs to their crescendos. There isn't a bad track on the band's second album The Inn of Sorrowing Souls but I can't honestly say any jumped out as being truly killer. Still, I'm not shutting it off any time soon and if a mash-up of Walls of Jericho and Sonic Firestorm sounds like a good thing, you won't either.
