ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A metal band with balls – a metal band that kicks balls ! I don’t remember any song which made my spine chill in the extent that "Defenders of Thermopylae", “Gates of Fire”, “Blades in the night” and “Land of the Brave” did. All of them stand easily –and without any exaggeration - among songs that made metal a part of our life.
Incredible introduction, riffs that make your head bang like hell, choir vocals that shake the ground, mighty drumming, killer guitar solos, twin-guitar melodies which make you sing along and last but not least, amazing and in-depth lyrics that cover the theme of the Battle of Thermopylae in a very close-to-history yet epic enough way. The whole SPARTA is passing in front of your eyes!!!
To tell you the bitter truth about how I feel, I really missed bands like this one. These guys begin their musical career with an album that is a tribute to the Battle of Thermopylae, thus risking to be characterized as old-fashioned and anachronistic. IT’S NOT LIKE THAT!!!

Against the nihilism of our age, against globalization and the decline of all cultural values, they insist on composing music referring to ideals that have been long forgotten or have been known to modern man as myths or fairy-tales. I assure you my friends; this is no such thing as a fairy tale. The 300 Spartan Warriors were there, they made a stand sacrificing for their Land and Laws, and they sacrificed for us. A sacrifice which today would surely become an object of mockery among politicians, academicians, know-all tv-critics and journalists.

Listen to the music of these guys. They have something unique to tell you. The main thing is that they can show you that hope DOES exist and is stronger than fire!!!!

Sadly for the "modern time" rockers, there will always be metal bands like this one, showing to the rest of us how true heavy metal must be played..
