Masters of the Multiverse

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)

I reviewed Dragony's adequate debut Legends then missed the followup Shadowplay but get to pick up the thread with their third album, Masters of the Multiverse. A quick scan of all the reviews here at The Crypt will reveal that a band name with the word "dragon" in it automatically means power metal and that is true of this Austrian group. They play music from the Italian school replete with neo-classical guitars, fanciful keys and high, clear vocals belting out catchy choruses. The songwriting is better than on the debut with a few standouts among the more standard fare. "Defenders" is the prototypical power metal anthem featuring double-kick drums and a chorus that is as easy to sing along with as it is to fall off a log. "Angels on Neon Wings" and "Days of High Adventure" have vocal lines so smooth they could have come from Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell (maybe not the heaviest album, but you can't argue with the songwriting). Masters of the Multiverse is well written and played even if Dragony are following time-honored patterns. Fantasy-themed power metal fans would do well to give this one a spin.
