Gloryful - The Warrior's Code

The Warrior's Code
by Katarzyna Zakolska at 24 June 2013, 9:53 PM

GLORYFUL is a band from Gelsenkirchen, Germany playing epic type of Heavy Metal, formed in 2010. Their 3-track demo “Sedna’s Revenge” gained them a high reputation among the classic Heavy Metal underground. Finally, “The Warrior's Code” came about recently. They chose legendary Swedish sound alchemist Dan Swanö as their producer, and it brought them only good.

“The Warrior’s Code” was my favorite, a ground where powerful riffs meeting melodic alterations. The choir presented on the chorus is practically similar to SABATON’s victorious manners, with amazing energy. I really enjoyed it, this is an amazing catchy track, profound guitaring, both lead and rhythms, assembling sections that might also indicate of IRON MAIDENish nature. “Gloryful’s Tale” is a high roller, presenting decisive musicianship and melodic perception; the singing reminded me of the strapping MANOWAR. “Far Beyond Time” demonstrated another slick memorable tracker while “Heavy Metal – More Than Meets The Eye” displays great melodies finding MAIDEN along with a MANOWARish intent, yet this one is rather modern. Vocalist Johnny La Bomba once again unleashed his magnetic force. “Breaking Destiny” inflamed with spirit of IRON MAIDEN meeting Bruce Dickinson’s solo act, heavy, groovy yet still classic.

Also worth to listen is: “Sedna’s Revenge” shared similarities with PEGAZUS’s antics, mixing flavors of Heavy and Power Metal, “Evil Oath” with fast rhythm & melodic riffs by a fair twin guitar mayhem in the line of JUDAS PRIEST and “Fist Of Steel” with a prevailing rhythm section and strong drumming. “Chased In Fate” adjoined as a modern ballad, kind like something that POWERWOLF might show in their albums.

GLORYFUL have been margining various great old bands like IRON MAIDEN, JUDAS PRIEST, MANOWAR and others of the kind. etc. and this is clearly listenable in their work. “The Warrior’s Code” is a fine Heavy Metal album bursting with melodies, pure admiration for the gods of true Metal, carrying the torch for the days to come. For a debut, an amazing work. I can't wait for their new songs.
