Cyclophonia brings a tradition Power Metal arrangement, two guitarist that bring a large variety of riffs, quite innovative and it is nice to see that they are stepping away from the stereotype here and there, you don’t feel like you can predict what is coming where other bands often bring the same type of riffs. The band works with two vocalists which gives a quite dynamic effect.
Love.Might.Kill is the project of drummer Michael Ehre (Firewind, Uli Jon Roth, Metallium), and their debut, Brace for Impact offers a platter of melodic heavy metal. It's a solid start even if there is some predictability within these songs. The strength of Brace for Impact is a fundamental foundation of traditional heavy metal.
