Heavy Metal Month II, Day 22) O Canada! Band from Canada
I’m sure many of you lie awake at night wondering what would happen if DragonForce and Amon Amarth were somehow to produce offspring. Well, look no further than our neighbors to the north at Crimson Shadows, one of the best combinations of bombastic power metal and melodic death metal that I’ve come across in recent years.
Kings Among Men was a fresh-sounding highlight of 2014, and one of the best-sounding sophomore albums I’d heard in a long time. The first song, Rise To Power, sets the stage for the rest of the album. If you haven’t given these Canadians a listen before, consider this a strong recommendation to check them out.
