Guest review by
Sick of the same power metal bands? Clones like Freedom Call (Gamma Ray), Persuader (Blind Guardian) and the like? Enter Kiuas, the pagan warriors!

Kiuas, a young and original power metal band from Finland has made their second album. Now, what's going wrong? Yes, original, power and from Finland. Amazing, huh?

Kiuas is so different from bands like Stratovarius and Sonata Arctica... First the guitar. Kiuas has real power. It's very strong and crunchy. So much, it doesn't look like power, but thrash or death. In fact, Kiuas can't be described as only power metal. They have influences from almost any other metal genre. Mostly folk/viking. Some thrashy riffs there, blast beats here... "Black Winged Goddess," for example, has a black metal feeling on it. And the bonus track is a Jethro Tull cover that sounds like 100xheavier.
