"Crowned in Frost" by Frozen Crown
"Crowned in Frost" is the new album from Frozen Crown, coming a year after the very successful debut "The Fallen King". This young Italian band shows their desire to enter the big leagues of Power Metal and they are succeeding with hard work.
I think the band stands out for the use of fast rhythms in the style of classic power / heavy Metal with the great vocal melodies developed by the beautiful and talented Giada Etro. It is important to note the importance of Federico Mondelli, founder and composer and even artifice of the band's art.
Before talking about the album, what surprised more, was how fast they released their second record. A few months ago I put “The Fallen King” as one of my favorite albums of 2018.
The album contains 11 songs in which we are charmed with 47 minutes of great Power Metal. This band is clear about what they want to do, because they take benefit of the speed in the riffs and the double pedal of the drums with huge and epic choruses complemented with incredible musical arrangements. Each song is unique and they even dare to do something different in "Winterfall” with guttural voices. Fucking amazing.
To conclude, the first thing is that it is a great continuation of the band's debut album. While this band continues like this it could become one of the biggest of the Heavy Metal in general.
It's a great album, that every time I listen to it I like it more. It's the beauty of a job well done, over time you'll discover new things that will surprise you and in that Frozen Crown do it a lot in this and the previous one. My most sincere congratulations to the band and keep it that way.
Best Songs: “Neverending”, "Winterfall”, “The Wolf and the Maiden” & “In the Dark”.
