Swedish power metal supergroup Dream Evil's third album, Book of Heavy Metal, gained widespread notoriety thanks to its title track's hilariously over the top promo video, which features bandmembers slathered in silver paint to convey just how metal they were, through and through. Not surprisingly, this perhaps unexpected success story paved the way for their next LP, and, just like the old Judas Priest anthem, "United," which no doubt inspired it, the title track epitomizes majestic marching metal with like-minded offerings such as "Kingdom at War" and "Doomlord," following right behind. Almost equally subtlety-free in their desire to replicate the more innocent qualities of heavy metal's early years are more energetic standouts like "Let Me Out," "Blind Evil," and "Fire! Battle! In Metal!," which augur even broader public appeal thanks to their more streamlined, very catchy choruses. Even better is the album's centerpiece power ballad, "Love Is Blind," which manages to satisfy most of heavy metal's loftiest standards from any era (soaring voices, long-ringing power chords, etc.), and promises to stand the test of time particularly well because of it.
