NINTH CIRCLE The Power Of One (2009)

Ninth Circle

Solid and traditional heavy metal with a modern sound, and influences of melodic power metal.

Opener 'Frontman' has hints of Queensryche and Iron Maiden, it's full of riffs and vocals mix solo lead with layered harmonies that hint at a heavier Def Leppard.

The guitar harmonies in the title track take more from Iron Maiden and Helloween. 'The Journey' is more melodic but the excellent twin guitar work is excellent, and a nod to prog metal.

One cover in the 12 tracks is Iron Maiden's 'Trooper' which is both true to form and has their own stamp, and shows Dickinson's influence on the vocals. A stand out cover, better than most.

Really well worth checking out.
