ALBUM THE HOLY WAR 1095
LABEL ROCKSHOTS RECORDS
OUT Sept 3rd, 2021
OUR RATING 83/100
Born as a cover band, Finnish Mysterizer made their debut with their 2018 EP "Tales From The Mystery Days", followed right after by their 2019 full-length "Invisible Enemy" out on Inverse Records.
Now signed to Rockshots Records, they will unleash their sophomore album "The Holy War 1095" on September 3rd, 2021, interesting for every HM/POWER HM fans.
This is the track by track statement by the band:
1. Burn Witch Burn is a song about the Witch-hunts in the 15th century.
2. King of Kings is a story about a selfish king who sacrifices his only son.
3. Last Stand Hill portays General Custer's last moments in the American Indian Wars.
4. Virus C tells about covid-19 virus and how to we work together for a common a goal this shit. In this song is a big chorus, where is everyone to sing this virus out!
5. Sin After Sin lures the listener to a sinful web of love.
7. Alea Iacta Est The song tells a true story about Julius Caesar and his troops crossing the Rubicon river, waiting for a chance to attack Rome.
8. Heroes is a song about the young who think of themselves as heroes when committing crimes and other bad deeds.
9. Dangerous Game is a story about the dangers of love.
10. The Holy War 1095 tells a historical true story about the Christians' war against Muslims in Jerusalem.
These are our minds about:
The first shot is BURN WITCH BURN, where classic metal meets power HM elements; all sounds fresh, helped by driving bass lines and dynamic drummin’.
KING OF KINGS, after a majestic intro and a start son of Maidens, is a solid tune, followed by LAST STAND HILL, more various with 80’s keys to open and solo parts again to remark.
Rich of emphasis next VIRUS C while SIN AFTER SIN mix classic elements with a personal touch.
THE FOUNTAINS OF IMMORTAL, after a soft arpeggio, shows a prog side, while ALEA IACTA EST is another great combination of classic and power HM elements.
More lilting and grandiloquent HEROES, while DANGEREOUS GAME is another various track you’ll appreciate.
The title track is the last shot that ends in the best way this brilliant album.
