COLOSSUS: And the Rift of the Pan-Dimensional Undergods: CD

Mar 17, 2008

As a dude who spent a lot of grade school days blasting Iron Maiden from a boombox in my driveway while playing basketball, I’m very skeptical about the resurgence of power metal. A lot of the bands I’ve heard have the sound, but they ain’t got the soul. I get the feeling they aren’t entirely serious about what they’re doing. I’m just waiting for them to lose their composure and say, “Just kidding, dude.” Well, fuck that. I don’t want to listen to joke power metal, no matter how good it is. I don’t want to listen to tongue-in-cheek songs about armored badger warriors, no matter how perfectly executed they are.
