Disc number two for the Knights of galloping heavy metal. I'm not exactly sure what to make of this band. On the one hand I love the galloping heavy metal and the 'hail brothers of metal' attitude, yet on the other hand there is something almost commical and non-serious about the Gothic Knights. The music is tight and proficient and the vocalist is quite good. They pull off a commendable rendition of Judas Priest's 'The Ripper' as well. Still, I can't say that I was totally won over on the first few listens like fellow Knights of Metal Hammerfall or Nocturnal Rites did when I first heard them. Perhaps with more listens this one will grow on me. Picked up this disc from Molten Metal.
