I love TIERRA SANTA ever since their brilliant debut "Medieval" and "Sangre de Reyes" is their fourth album since then, in relatively little time, but this does not prove detrimental to the quality of the songs at all, quite the contrary!
Who has seen the Spaniards at the "Bang Your Head"-festival knows that this band is among the best in traditional Metal that Europe has to offer right now! And all who complain that they sound more like MAIDEN than the Englishmen themselves, I don't care, rather a relationship to a band like that in this quality than a sure original, but otherwise unlistenable music!
The keyboard has received a little more space on "Sangre de Reyes", but always remains in the background, so no disturbance here. Apart from that TIERRA SANTA have stuck true to their path and forge just great traditional Metal, oozing with joy (and that is what makes this band stand out so much!).
No matter if you take "David E El Gigante", the speedy "Pegaso", the straight "La Sombra De La Bestia" or the excellent "Le Armada Invencible" and "Mi Tierra", everything is finest steel and the Spanish lyrics with their interesting sound and Angel's great voice just add to this impression.
Like mentioned before, TIERRA SANTA are among the best that the European traditional Metal has to offer, period!
