To The Gods We Swear by Rozario (Pride & Joy Music)

Always exciting to receive a new album from Pride & Joy Music to review – and the label has really slammed it out of the ballpark with the signing of the mighty Rozario. Presenting traditional heavy metal at its most impassioned and inspirational, To The Gods We Swear by Rozario is one of the most stunning debut albums of the year from any genre. Fans of acts such as HammerFall and Freedom Call will be absolutely over the moon when encountering the explosive reveries this Norwegian metal band has to offer the world.

After the introductory clarion call of Northern Battle Cry, To The Gods We Swear explodes into the grand and mighty title track, hooking the listener in with its dynamic reprieves. Heavy Metal Rider is an instant genre classic that will spin in your head for the triumphant ages ahead.

Nightmare In Flames is a brilliantly imaginative tune that will scorch the senses. Born Again is a mesmerizing composition showing how boldly effective Rozario is when it comes to an absorbing power ballad. And the classic metal keeps on enveloping the senses, with tracks such as Silents Lies, Burning Up, and the raging Heavens Fall Down leaving an indelible impression.

The Rozario lineup is supremely inventive, featuring masterwork performances from David Rosario on lead vocals, Stein Hjertholm on guitars, Johan Jamtfall on lead guitar, Anders Halsan Engum on bass, and Per-Helge Bruvoll on drums. With a first magnum opus this thrilling, it will be exciting to see what the future has in store for the almighty Rozario. In the meantime, check out To The Gods We Swear and catch a rising heavy metal star!
