I see Felipe Machado Franco does a lot of power metal covers. I've been noticing that lately.

Try "Dark Assault" and "Condition Red" - these are my favourite two I think...

Heavy Metal Never Dies kicks so much ass. What a great song, i never thought it would good because of it's title. And this is their best artwork till now...

Indeed. And the fact he always uses the same colors (blue and orange) make a lot of album covers look kinda similar.
SMAX - 15.10.2011 at 22:02  
Absolutely love this band. Hope this album sounds more like their old stuff and less like megatropolis though.
The Shape 1973 - 16.10.2011 at 14:58  
Good to hear some new stuff, but don't like the chorus. Pretty much every song about heavy metal sucks. To The Metal anyone?
RavenKing - 16.10.2011 at 16:58  
The new song is way too soft and slow for this band. Generic and unimpressive.
And I hate 'Hail Metal' songs. It's not as awful as "To The Metal", however.
Angelic Storm - 16.10.2011 at 17:52  
Most "hail metal" songs do suck, though "Heavy Metal (Is The Law)" by Helloween is an awesome song.

I like this one. But, unlike most 'Hail Metal' songs that sound like standard Heavy Metal or verge on hard rock, this one is a real melodic Speed Metal song. "Heavy Metal Universe", by Gamma Ray, is not bad either, though I prefer by far "Heavy Metal Is The Law".

"Metal Invaders" from the same album ("Walls Of Jericho") is also a "hail metal" song, which is also amazing. Yep, "Heavy Metal Universe" is another good one, if not as good as those Helloween ones. Generally speaking, "hail metal" songs sound silly and cheesy unless they are great musically, which doesn't often happen. Kai Hansen has shown both the right and wrong ways to write songs about metal, with "To The Metal" being both boring and cheesy. The electrifying power of the early Helloween metal anthems negate any cheesiness in the lyrics as the music is so powerful... just my take on it I guess. lol

"Metal Invaders" is a good song.
Yes, I think most 'Hail Metal' songs sound silly and cheesy, indeed.

Early Helloween is much more powerful musically than modern Powermetal. I don't consider this stuff as cheesy.
The difference is this kind of Powermetal, just like early Blind Guardian, was still deeply rooted in Speed Metal, unlike what people consider now as Powermetal (and that I often call cheesemetal or flowermetal).
If Powermetal was still kinda like "Walls Of Jericho", I would have much more respect for the genre.

Well, the problem with "hail netal" type songs, is it instantly brings to mind stuff like Manowar, who are the epitome of awful cheesiness. I'd say that stuff like "Heavy Metal (Is The Law)" isn't really cheesy, because the music captures the power, essence, and aggression of metal, and so the lyrics just completely fit with the music and don't sound naff at all.

It is definitely possible to make good "metal anthems", Helloween and some others have done it right, but when it's of the Manowar type, that's when it's embaressingly cheesy, and ironically, not metal at all. At least not to me...

Totally agreed on Manowar. It's pure awful cheese and embarrassing. And, like you say, not metal from my point of view.
Playing-wise, Manowar do not elevate themselves higher than at a hard rock level.

Manowar is a band I especially despise. I mean, Imo, bands like Metallica and Iron Maiden suck nowadays but at least they released worthy albums long ago. Manowar never released anything worthy.

Agreed totally. "Walls of Jericho" and "Imaginations From The Other Side" are the best PM albums ever released. Even though I love so much albums and songs from the genre (and the road that it took recently).

Well Whiplash and Metal Militia by Metallica and Heavy Metal Maniac by Exciter and Metal COmmand are also sort of hail metal type songs and they are quite decent to be honest

"Whiplash" is actually a very good fun song.

"Whiplash" and "Metal Militia" are more than just "quite decent", if you ask me. I haven't heard the Exciter track, so I can't comment on that one...

Manowar type "hail metal" songs are awful, but quite a few bands have done great metal anthems. xD

I was using what is probably THE understatement of my posting career here on MS by calling those 4 songs "quite decent" especially Whiplash, Metal Militia and Metal Command are top notch and totally awesome
as for Manowar type hail metal songs... the less said, the better

100% agreed, hence why I replied in the way I did!

And yep, I'll say no more about that... hehee *zips mouth closed*

I never liked Metallica, always found it quite overrated, but even a non-Metallica fan like me can admit that these songs are good.

Wasn't too keen on the first single, but this is brilliant. Quite funny to watch him part way through the video singing from a notepad with the words on.
