Stormwarrior - Northern Rage

Genre: Speed Metal
Country: Germany
Year: 2004
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.


  1. Can you post Ensifurem on "folk metal"?

  2. Nah, they're not really my thing. You can find them on pretty much any metal blog out there though.
