'Ocean Blade' is the sophomore entry from this German band. The five-piece espouse the belief that traditional heavy metal is still prominent and relevant and showcase that spirit and dedication through ten tracks of triumph and steel. One could point to Iron Fire and Rebellion as kindred spirits to this sort of medieval exhibition. Soccer chants, quick paced riffing and fantasy lyrics are utilized for presentation and performance yet it's hard for the group to break tradition and do something innovative and original. Gloryful are to the traditional enthusiast what Merlot is for wine connoisseurs. It is simply eat, drink, rinse and repeat.
