Guest review by
The Book of Heavy Metal is the 3rd album of the Swedish Heavy/Power Metal band Dream Evil.

The first thing about this album is that it is really different from the first 2 albums. This album is totally a heavy metal Masterpiece! The first thing you hear on the album is a great scream MEEEEEEEEETAAAAAL, and then some heavy riffs and cool drumming. You will know what is coming. All the songs on this album are really good, the lyrics of this album are about metal metal and more metal (not like the previous albums that were about dragons, battles, evil dreams, and stuff like that). I think they are more mature now; the lyrics are a lot better, the sound is better, the quality is better than ever.

The strongest Dream Evil album I've heard so far, though I've yet to listen to their last two albums. Some of the songs on here are so powerful and bombastic and remains utterly memorable for along time, not to mention the level of heaviness on the superb title track and other songs like "Chosen Ones" and "M.O.M". The title track in fact introduced me to the band in the first place, back when Metal Hammer released free DVDs with each issue (That was about 8 or 9 years ago), and I was instantly hooked, so I don't know why I didn't feel the need to listen to the album in full. The vocal delivery also feels more varied here, particularly on the title track where classic metal screams and grouped vocals work well.
