Reawaken (Century Media)

By: Jeb Branin

More and more it seems that the underground equates having a classic "power metal" sound with having a tired 3rd generation HELLOWEEN wannabe sound. Maybe the mighty ONWARD can join label mates like NEVERMORE, ICED EARTH and ANGEL DUST in stemming this disturbing trend. On "Reawaken" the band continues solidly on the path laid down on their debut "Evermoving." Their song-writing has, not surprisingly, improved and their razor sharp execution is perfectly intact. If you, like me, enjoy pure heavy metal burnished to a smooth and sparkling gleam, then "Reawaken" is for you. If you, like me, desperately need an album to take the putrid taste of Euro-HELLOWEEN-come-lately clone bands out of your mouth, then "Reawaken" is a godsend.
