Genre: Speed Metal
Label: Remedy Records
Stormwarrior's Northern Rage is a rip-roaring, pedal to the metal monster of a speed metal album. These guys play fast, catchy metal and are very, very good at it. They obviously have a soft spot for early Helloween, a fact made all the more apparent by Kai Hansen's hand in the album's production and guest appearance on the song "Heroic Deathe". Basically, this is everything you'd hope for from a German speed metal band, replete with big, memorable choruses, spectacular leads, and high octane riffs played at breakneck pace. If you're a fan of the genre, you really cannot go wrong with Northern Rage.
For fans of Helloween, Running Wild, Gamma Ray, and early Blind Guardian.
