Swedish power metal group Krilloan are back with the re-release of their dynamic EP Stories Of Times Forgotten, now available worldwide via Sliptrick Recoprds. The songs on Stories Of Times Forgotten are fast, based on fast riffing, thundering drums and crowned by the epic vocals of Alex VanTrue. The EP includes five tracks that sum up the whole idea behind Krilloan, fast, hard and melodic power metal played at lightning speed. The songs make you want to pump your fist in the air and scream. The music is created and played out with a long and never-ending love of the genre whilst still retaining a fresh, vibrant and engaging sound.
Krilloan joined forces with Stormwarrior mainman Lars Ramcke and Piet Sielck of Iron Savior who agreed to mix and master the EP. Production was taken care of by mainman Klas Holmgren. If you are into the early Blind Guardian and Helloween records, Krilloan have got you covered and could well be the missing piece of the puzzle when it comes to the power metal scene of today.

Gekrönt wird das Ganze durch die herausragende gesangliche Leistung von Alex VanTrue …read more

Auch wenn das Ganze unter dem Banner Power Metal läuft, hätte man es genauso gut Speed Metal nennen können, denn vier der fünf Tracks ballern mit Doublebass Dauerfeuer und Hochgeschwindigkeitsriffs aus den Boxen, dass die britischen Kollegen von Dragonforce glatt neidisch werden könnten …read more
