So, the anticipation is finally over and Reverence is back with a new opus which is entitled "Gods Of War". I was sure that this band would deliver a big album and, hell, it did! "Gods Of War" is a true metal album that stays true to its roots of the classic metal scene of the 80's and includes big and in-your-face riffs, hellish solos, tight songs and passionate-soaring vocals.
The opening tune of "Gods Of War" is pure metal delight. An almost Dokken-esque intro riff and comes the real thing which is this year's metal anthem!! "Heart Of Gold", "Until My Dying Breath" and the ultra catchy "Angel In Black" are all three great samples of powerful melodic metal at its best. One of the highlights here is without any doubt the killer tune of "Choices Made"; this is an up-tempo power metal gem with a sing-a-long chorus line that you are gonna whistle it for days!
The fact is that there is no filler in sight here. Every single track in "Gods Of Metal" is an hymn to the glory days of the classic metal/power metal scene of the 80's played with attitude and with a more updated sound and the final result is pure candy in my ears.
