Label: Steamhammer/SPV – 308581 2LP
Released: February 28th, 2011
Style: Heavy/Power Metal
2 × Vinyl, LP, Album, Limited Edition, coloured Green vinyl. “The Scourge of the Light” has no mask, no gimmick, no falsehood, and certainly no mercy for trends; it’s simply heavy metal in its truest form. Conklin sounds wonderful as always and the remaining members do a bang-up job instrumentally and are definitely at the top of their game. While it’s clear “The Scourge of the Light” can’t brush up to the group’s early masterpiece, the record still ignites the embers of classic metal and is certainly worth a purchase for fans both old and new. Definitely recommended for fans of Vicious Rumors, Armored Saints, Judas Priests, Virgin Steele, Iced Earth.
