Dragonsfire: Metal X EP

Heavy/Power Metal
3.5/5.0

Celebrating ten years in the heavy metal arena is Dragonsfire from Germany. Appropriately, they'll do it in style with a new EP called Metal X. It consists of five new songs and an expanded version of Steel Eel, which originally appeared on 2013's Speed Demon EP.

Dragonsfire

If you're new to Dragonsfire, their metal is the traditional 'keep it true' variety, a blend of classic melodic heavy and power metal with twin guitars. Actually, everything steers more towards power metal as every song has a brisk pace, with some songs like Man On A Mission or Hell, two of the faster songs. After this, the twin guitars are one Dragonsfire's best features. The guitar lines drive the harmony and melody throughout, and then burn off some rippin' solos. If you dig classic metal guitar solos, you'll definitely appreciate this album, with two of the best coming within Hell and, their ode to all things metal, Young & Wild. Bass player and vocalist Thassilo Herbert has some gruffness to his voice, but he sings clean and sounds 'metal'. Sometimes he's backed up by gang vocals as within Steel Eel, which also features Jens "Preacher" Hübinger from Steelpreacher. Overall, Metal X is a well done, though brief, collection of classic heavy metal tunes.
