Legendry

Citing traditional, yet diverse, metal and rock acts such as Manilla Road, Cirith Ungol, Uriah Heep, and Jethro Tull, Legendry seeks to entertain you with epic heavy metal poured through classic rock groove and some Celtic influences. The latter is found in the acoustic opener, The Bard's Tale, and the title cut; the former within songs like Vindicator or the Lost Road. Additionally, many songs, like Earthwarrior and the title cut, are wrapped in synth orchestration to add both texture and density to Legendry's epic metal style. While the songs tell the mythical tale, you'll find that Legendry want to give you musical arrangements that feature all players. You can expect some exceptional rhythm, groove, and power metal gallop from the rhythm section as both bass and drum lines are well heard. Vidarr is a solid vocalist, singing clean and melodic with more than a little drama to his voice. He's also an exceptional electric (and acoustic) guitarist, laying done inspired and soaring solos throughout The Wizard And The Tower Keep.

Basically, if you're a fan of both traditional and epic heavy metal, you'll find Legendry's The Wizard And The Tower Keep a fine modern interpretation of this classic and lasting genre. Recommended.
