Dawnbringer - Into the lair of the sun god

Dio era Sabbath layered on top of Iron Maiden at their best with a solo in every song. Chris Black, while no Ronnie is on tune and belts out this sad, Tolkein-esque epic with understated passion. Indeed this is an album where bombast and grandiosity is supplied via skillful arrangements and masterful attention to the metal canon. Neither pastiche nor nostalgia, this is metal tribute.
