AXENSTAR - The Final Requiem

The Swedish power metal quartet has delivered three proper albums for Arise Records and while their deal with the Spanish label has expired they not just inked a new deal with Massacre Records, they also lost both of their guitar players due to personal reasons. New kid on the six strings is ex-Skyfire member Joakim Jonsson and he offers an even more powerful and aggressive style into his riffs, without changing the trade-marks of the band, which are still catchy and powerful metal anthems in the vein of Dream Evil. There is not a single weak track on offer, but to enter the premiere league of the power metal scene they need a bit more diversity at their songs, cause they all have the same tempo.
