Might & Power

Rated 4.1/5 (82%) (10 Votes)

Megaton Sword are back with their second full-length album, and it is very much a continuation of their last one, which means the good things about their style are still present, as are the flaws. This is the same epic-edged Trad Metal that draws on classic shit like Manilla Road and Manowar. The riffs are pretty good, the production is a bit weak, and the songs seem to have a hard time coming together into genuine songs rather than just collections of parts. Vocalist "Uzzy Unchained" has a versatile instrument, but some of the things he does work, and some don't. The terrible screeching he adopts for opener "The Raving Light of Day" made me sure they had changed singers, and then made me hit the "skip" button, but on the rest of the album he does much better, even if his constantly shifting approaches keeps him from sounding distinct in any way. Overall, this sounds a lot like their last album, but I don't think the writing is as good.
