Burnt Offerings: StormWarrior – Heading Northe

German.  Viking lyrics.  Fast.  Powerful.  What’s not to like?  I caught StormWarrior a couple of years ago and, despite all the Power Metal clichés, they were really good.  The title track from the album Heading Northe (gotta love the “e”), blasts out speedily, double bass, blistering guitars, awesomely Norse lyrics about battle and sailing.  Axe wielder and frontman Lars Ramcke has been at it for a few years with a revolving lineup, but his musical stylings have been pretty consistent and, though not offering a whole lot original, is expertly executed and head banging worthy.  True, epic Power Metal.

I hear the sound in a METAL way.
