Heavy / power metal / 80's metal - CANADA

A few weeks ago, a second offering from Canadian act Iron Kingdom looked the light of day. " Gates Of Eternity"are consists of 9 tracks in, done in reckognizeble heavy / power mood with expecting 80's metal additionals as well. Canadian quartet one more time confirms its qualities as a promising act under the mentioned genre's fileld, cos' complete offering materials deserve respectations and repeatable listenings, of course if you are fan or follower of  heavy/ power tendencies. A songs are in one hand similiar among them, but one positive 80' psychology characterize complete album atmosphere as well. Twin guitar passages, sinhronized arrangments works, solid production and nothing less convinceble technical dimensions are present here and there from first to last tacts.  A group has also recorded one interesting epic track -  " Egypt  - The End Is Near", probably a favourable concert gem too. "Gates Of Eternity " like its previous album, one more time expand band's potentials, and this product is more than recomandable release for the followers of  80's tendencies.
