Destiny - Atomic Winter
Drumattacks, wild guitar solo, a glasscutting voice, paced in mid-tempo, progressive but always catchy, ennobled with great hammond organ sounds, that's the elements which thrill me when I listen to the song "Bermuda" on "Atomic Winter", the second album of the Swedish Power Metal band DESTINY. Just great this tune.

As well as "Bermuda" is "Who Am I?", which is a bit more catchier and is ennobled by a great chorus. Also the following "Spellbreaker" with its strong riffs and its catchy chorus is over the top.

No second of this CD is boring, provided that you invest some time and don't listen to this superficially. I would call this album as a predecessor of the old MORGANA LEFAY, combined with the intensity of the first METAL CHRUCH, so it's slightly proggy, but never forgets catchy melodies, it's pretentiously but never chesty. Just pure steel.

Besides the great sound, you'll get as coronation a picture of Derek Riggs (e.g. IRON MAIDEN). (Online December 29, 2002)
