TWILIGHT GUARDIANS certainly hold their own in an over-crowded genre.



Extremely listenable second album from Finlands Twilight Guardians here, a rushing collection of slickly-produced power metal jewels that flow over the ears like white water rapids. Not only does this album contain some super-catchy songs and lightning fast instrumentation, but it also has a lot of longevity too, as I bought this when it came out and its as good today as it was then.

Taking their cues from countrymen Dreamtale, Twilight Guardians play fast, keyboard-led, neo-classical power metal laced with that ever-so-loathed candy-coated brand of melody bands like Edguy, Morifade, and Sonata Arctica tend to write so well. There are plenty of sweeping guitars here, a lot of double kicking drums, some powerful choruses, and of course, a crystal-clear Finnvox production that is one of the most beneficial factors when weighing up this beauty. The sound is one of the reasons this is so easy on the ears, as at times the guitar/keyboard interplay can get a little overpowering, particularly in the solo sections. Song-wise, most tracks are winners with definite highlights being the graceful “Angels”, fiery opener “Weak Generation”, and the epic “King of the Wasteland” all ticking the right boxes.
A quality power metal record that will have you singing along at every turn (to some pretty weird lyrics, I’ll admit). Fans of the genre would do well to check it out.
