OUR RATING 86/100
New opus by MARIUS DANIELSEN, 'Legend of Valley Doom: Part 2', will be available on Nov 30th and honestly, we ha a blast listening to it in preview!
On November 30 Crime Records will release the long-awaited Legend of Valley Doom: Part 2 from MARIUS DANIELSEN on CD and Vinyl LP, with two different bonus tracks.
If you liked Part 1, you'll be really impressed by Part 2!
Marius took only 3 three years and will take you to the next level of this Epic Metal Opera trilogy. The new chapter in the Legend of Valley Doom will continue where Part 1 left us.
The Dark Lord defeated Valley Doom, and King Thorgan fell in battle.
The Valley Doomians are forced to flee to their allies in the west - The Kingdom of Eunomia.
It is up to the Warrior King to lead the people of Valley Doom to safety.
Together with King Eunotrian and Arigo the Wise they need to find a way to defeat the Dark Lord. What went wrong with the prophecy? The answers lie in the Crystal Mountains.
Really amazing the names involved in this project but the things that hit us are the fancy structures and the range of solutions provided.
We can find epic moments, typical power metal runaways, more classic moments, but also a ballad, some epic drops and solos always to remind!
SURELY TO SUGGEST! A MUST HAVE ALBUM!
