Rating: 7 So far the album is sounding absolutely amazing with what they've released so far, can't wait!
Holy Man - 18.11.2011 at 19:11  
  This album fucking kicks ass. Spinnin' it right now, it's fuckin awesome. Haven't lost any ground whatsoever they're still right on top of it. Classic Iron Savior right here.
Mountain King - 24.11.2011 at 21:12  
  So far this album sounds amazing. I feel like it's their best album to date. Best production for sure and Piet seems to have put a lot of effort to diversify the songs and make the album sound fresh and full of energy. Great job...
Angelic Storm - 25.11.2011 at 14:53  
  Very good album. Definitely worth the wait!

The album is extremely well rounded. It has a few melody parts that remind me a lot of Blind Guardian, and there's some riffs that are very Primal Fear-esque... There's just a lot on offer for the power metal fan on this album. Piet has definitely excelled himself on "The Landing", it might just be the best Iron Savior release to date.
Baz Anderson - 27.11.2011 at 17:44  
  Being a fan of the band for many years, I don't think this is their best by a way. It's a good album, probably better than the last one - but not better than half of their other albums.
Frodd - 29.11.2011 at 15:13  
Rating: 7 This is one Power metal album that actually feels powerful.

I think it is probably their most well-rounded release in terms of variety, though "Unification" and "Dark Assault" are better overall albums. I think it likely is their best since Kai left the band though. And it's definitely better than their last album, which was decent, but a bit disappointing too.
Baz Anderson - 29.11.2011 at 17:13  
  My favourite album overall is probably "Condition Red", so I definitely don't think this is their best without Kai. Maybe I just need to listen to it a few more times, maybe I don't like this music as much as I used to, but I just wasn't blown back by it.

Rating: 6 Only song that i like is Starlight..imo disappointing..its 2011.and i expected more from them..

Rating: 8 Wow. I'm just wrapping up my first listen and let me just say this album is rocking my socks off. Literally, I took my socks off.

I had been worried about power metal for most of this year but several late releases (and new to me releases) have brought it nicely up to par. This will likely be one of my top 5 power metal albums... but let's see how it grows on me first.

Maybe should have sent a PM for this question, but which recent power metal releases are you referring to?

Well this Iron Savior album and Shadowside's Inner Monster Out are the latest I've heard which really impressed. Also Borealis and ReinXeed were recent for me and quite above par also.

Rating: 8 Had to bump it to 10. Perfect Euro Power. Just the right amount of cheese!
RhaegarTargaryen - 17.12.2011 at 20:51  
Rating: 8 "Cheesy sing along power metal with SF and glory of metal lyrics" ... The descriptions sounds bad, doesn't it. But as it goes with Iron Savior it's everything but, another good album from German masters.

The Norseman - 16.02.2012 at 16:52  
Rating: 7 I start listening to this album after it was nominated for MS Awards 2011 in their genre. It was also my first from Iron Savior.

It's a nice album but I don't believe it's worth the nomination. I enjoyed "Blood Alliance" from Power Quest much more and they weren't even nominated.

Still, good enough to worth a listening.

Rating: 9 Really really great
Hermann Langke - 15.05.2012 at 09:51  
  Will get it!

Rating: 8 Definitely a great album.

Not a lot of amazing songs, but every song is very solid in it's own way.
