Join Twilight Force, young girls and boys, on this great quest! Together with brethren such as Gloryhammer and Fairyland, they will defend the Twilight Kingdom against the dark lords of serious metal! Ride with our heroes on colorful dragons to the barren lands of evil, harsh metals, and battle the enemy with weapons such as sing-a-long choruses, lush orchestrations, and pure happiness! The quest will be long, exactly 12 tracks, but the energy will remain high with catchy tune after catchy tune to inspire your fellowship. Grab your enchanted sword, head to the wizard for blessings of mighty magic; we ride at sunrise. (Must provide own sword and unicorn.)

Sounds very much like Pathfinder.

Imo it's better than their debut. Musically it's very impressive, there is something about the mix that is a little odd and I can't really pinpoint what it is, doesn't affect the music too much though. A great album none the less.

I expected a bit more after first "Battle Of Arcane Might" was released...still it is good one

And I also think the mixing is strange - like it is muted or what...


EDIT: the impression gets better and better with every next hearing session

It improved the first one. Maybe will be some complains about the production, but I have no problem with that. I enjoy this album so much

Good comparison. I thought it sounds like a mix between Freedom Call and Rhapsody.

Well, I first noticed it in Battle of Arcane Might, there's a weird ringing background sound towards the end (4:35) that sounds like a Sonic game when he takes damage and loses a load of rings... Then in some of the songs it's like the drums have too much echo and guitars are low volume.

That said, the album is one of my favourites from this year..

Yeah I hear that too, I would also throw early era Dark Moor into that mix too.

I also hear melodies that remind me theme from "Battling the green death" from "How to tame a dragon" movie (especially in "Rise of a hero")...might be both a coincidence or an inspiration

Can't stop listening to "Flight Of The Sapphire Dragon"...this song must be the Holy Grail of epic fantasy power metal

Fly far away over mountains and seas
to lands and kingdoms far beyond
Return with fire to the halls of might
Let the flames of the forge burn bright

So behold the flight of the sapphire dragon
soaring through the skies once again

I don't like the prodution at all. Sounds so dull and flat. I can't hear guitars at all sometimes. Only keys, vocals and drums..

Downvoted in 3, 2, 1...

Anyway, what I've heard so far sounds good. Can't wait for my copy to arrive

EDIT: WOW! When I started typing, it had a 8,5 with 20 votes. After I posted my message, it had a 8,3 with 21 votes.
I know, it's part of metalstorm. But still, made me chuckle

I just love Twilight Force. They know exactly how I want my stereotypical cheezy power metal. Although I can agree about the production. There's so much happening all the time and sometimes certain melodies, vocals or instruments dissappear.

They should probably add guitars to their band. This sounds like Disney music with double bass.

How many takes do you reckon it took to do Epilogue without him giggling?

So far really digging it. Fantasy Metal pushed to the absolute limit and god damn is it fun! Definitely gives GloryHammer a run for their money.

Now if we could only get another Dragonland album...

The cheese took me by surprise and I couldn't get used to it. I love good Power Metal but this cheese is too much and just not my thing. Songs like "There And Back Again" remind me of Pathfinder which isn't bad but the album overall to me was just average.

If Disney made metal.
