Dulce Bellum Inexpertis

Rated 3.33/5 (66.67%) (3 Votes)

It is nice to see the United States produce some traditional heavy metal with Dulce Bellum Inexpertis, courtesy of Philadelphia's Blazon Rite. While Blazon Rite are American, and songs like "The Warriors Choice (Take Me Away)" have a definite epic vibe, a la Omen or Manilla Road, they've also got a European power metal streak running through their sound. The tempos are often quick, and the vocalist sounds a lot like Sabaton's Joachim Broden and his deep, sonorous delivery (minus the rolling of the Rs). The lyrics are nebulous and arcane, something the seekers of hidden meanings should enjoy but overall, none of the songs really stuck out to my ears. Dulce Bellum Inexpertis is solid and hints at the promise Blazon Rite might deliver something special in the coming years.
