This sounds like the worst tracks from The Fiction Maze.

Awesome
Energetic, catchy and not cheesy. They clearly still have it.

Damn, these guys are giving Judicator a strong run for their money in terms of how heavily inspired you can be by Blind Guardian, there's parts on the opening track that probably breach copyright it's so obviously ripped off. Still, it's enjoyable due to BG being such a fantastic band

It's the other way around, Persuader is much older and more accomplished than Judicator.

They might be a lot older than Judicator, but they're quite a lot younger than Blind Guardian, and they're the band that I was mentioning there being extreme similarities to on The Curse Unbound

It comes mostly from Carlsson's vocals which sound similar to Hansi 25 years ago. Check out Savage Circus and Dark Empire as well.

The vocals clearly play a part in it (not just the tone, but also the harmonizations and the vocal melodies he chooses), but I think a lot of the instrumental work is heavily reminiscent of 90s BG; I'm just relistening to it now to check myself, and the chorus that starts a couple of minutes into The Curse Unbound even has the same drum patterns as BG would use, between the bass drum rolls and the snare accents in the 'far from home' vocal part. Also, the guitar lead at ~3:25 is so similar to parts from SFB/IFTOS, particularly due to the tone and it being combined with those vocals and lyrics - those moments cross over from being 'similar to Blind Guardian' to 'replicating BG' for me

If Blind Guardian today would sound like this? Maybe most underated PM of this year, because this is PM, fast as speed metal, but still PM. Killer one, heasvy blasting songs, good vocals, good forward leading sound whit solid lyrics. This kills, maybe best PM album in this year, maybe best PM album from Swedish band ever?

The fact that I don't enjoy this band that much is because they sound like Blind Guardian. I don't enjoy BG that much as well and dare I say, they are overrated.

I hate the vocals. Did not find much interest. Maybe I am not a fan of PM

Vocals??...I think we have different tastes here. But anyway I have given a 7/10 bcoz I don't want to be a part of negative voting.
