Iron Savior's Piet Sielck has been around the Power Metal scene since the beginning both as a musician and on the other side of the board as an engineer and producer, so he's heard, seen and played it all. Titancraft is Iron Savior's ninth studio album (10th if you count the reissue of Megatropolis in 2015) and the band is as sharp and catchy as ever. There's a solid mix of speedy double-kick tracks and mid-paced rockers with lyrics covering sci-fi ("Titancraft"), the Metal lifestyle ("Rebellious") and cowboys ("Gunsmoke"). Wait, cowboys?? Ah, well, classic old westerns are cool. Piet's voice is the perfect gritty wail for crunchy European Power Metal and there are plenty of tasty riffs and solos. This album isn't as exciting as the band's early stuff but it is a fun listen. It doesn't really move the Savior forward but it isn't a step back either, just a solid entry into the band's discography.
