Possessed by the Moon

Rated 3.67/5 (73.33%) (3 Votes)

Gengis Khan’s Possessed by the Moon is a crunchy, Euro power metal affair that starts on the melodic side with prominent keyboards firing off melodies worthy of Timeless Miracle on songs like "Possessed by the Wolf" and "In the Name of Glory" before it skews crunchier, à la Running Wild like on "Extreme Power." The songwriting is good but formulaic and lacking any real vocal hooks or riffs that stick around much after the album is over. It is enjoyable while on and should give fans of crunchy power metal another solid record for the collection, but Gengis Khan doesn’t display any chops on their third album that would vault it to the top of anyone’s playlist.
