Staff review by
Power Metal from Belgium… hmm that isn't anything we hear every day, so just the origin is tempting here. Not only the origin, but I guess you get my point.
And Power Metal is a very common style today, but sometimes it's possible to find a band that's at least a little original. Magic Kingdom is one, they aren't the most original band out there, but they got their own ideas how the music shall sound like, and that's positive.
