Thor injects some youthful personnel and energy into his classic style
Jon Mikl, aka Thor, teams up with guitarist John Leibel and bassist Ted Jedlicki of Minnesota power metal act Dawn of Valor for record number 19. I think the youthful energy injected into Thor's classic riffing and mindset is a much-needed spark. The title-track is symbolic of this traditional sound--light double-bass behind up-front bass and some great riffs. The backing vocals offset some of Thor's middle vocal range. Lyrically, it's all unity and winning. Fitting considering Thor is 62 and still possesses the heart of a champ.
