Axentar: “Chapter VIII” Digital and CD 1st December 2023 Inner Wound Recordings. Swedish Powermetal band.
The Swedish monster is back with another masterpiece. It’s heavy and it feels so good. While the band had a line-up change and label one, they are still kicking the concrete for good. Their sound and style remain untouched and always driving to the mighty Heavy Metal pleasure.
A great cover artwork slightly different from the previous albums, this chapter is a brand new one. It takes you from the start to the end without losing emotions and power. Catchy riffs push vocal melodies and entertain with pleasure. Reminding the good old days, just makes you want to live and headbang all day.
Axentar knows how to write good riffs and capture the aim of the explosion in the Metal scene. Swedes always knew how to write good music. This album will for sure stay in music history, the music spreads emotions to follow the lyrics perfectly. You are feeling what the music gives you, like watching a movie. The mind will set you free with beautiful imagery.
