Damnation Angels are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very epic and symphonic form of power metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "The Valiant Fire" which was released by Massacre Records.
Symphonic sounds start off the album and they also give the music a very epic feeling along with some elements of classical music and after awhile the heavy and symphonic parts of the music start to mix together and power metal vocals are added onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
A good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses the band brings in a few power ballads and also brings in an influence of AOR style hard rock/metal to their symphonic power metal sound and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of acoustic guitars and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a great mixture of both old school and modern influences and they also bring in an instrumental before closing the recording with a vocal track.
Damnation Angels creates another power metal album that is very epic, modern and symphonic while also adding in a touch of melodic hard rock/metal to their musical style on this recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and mythological themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Damnation Angels and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out of this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Icarus Syndrome" "Closure" and "Under An Ancient Skin". 8 out of 10.
