From the metal capital of the world, Germany, comes a new traditional heavy metal band, Sacred Gate. The founding members (vocalist and guitarist)started mastering their craft in Made Of Iron, which started out as an Iron Maiden tribute band -- and the British legends still have the biggest influence on their music. Years later they serve a perfect, timeless classic metal album, rooted in the NWOBHM tradition and flavored with '80s US power metal vibes. Impressive song structures, mighty riffs, galloping guitar harmonies and solos, remarkable bass lines, solid power drumming, anthemic choruses, charismatic, slightly rough but clean vocals and a great feel for melody. Nothing new? So what, if it's played with real conviction, skill and class!
