I love '80s epic themed metal. I'm not going to call this 'power metal' because that makes people think of bands like Dragonforce, Rhapsody, Symphony X or Edguy. What I'm talking about are bands like Manowar, Fifth Angel, Savatage, Cirith Ungol and Viper. Nightmare from France fall into this category and although this is their second full length album with a completely different singer it's easily my favorite release of theirs. The vocals truly soar on this album and are a perfect match for the catchy music and solos laid down by the rest of the band. Sometimes this is my favorite French album. Today is one of those days.

Power of the Universe
