Battle Heart - Return Of The Ancient Knight
Not brandnew anymore, but still worth getting reviewed, I think, is the debut-mini-CD "Return Of The Ancient Knight" of the Dutch quintet BATTLE HEART.

Covered by the obligatory fantasy-artwork, they offer four tracks of speedy Power Metal of the European school, where you hear the influence of BLIND GUARDIAN and consorts almost everywhere, but still the band manages not to sound as a pure copy of them.

Tracks like "Dreamhealer", "Hail The Sword" or the title-track sound a little unclean and the vocals are relatively weak, but the potential is apparent.

Unfortunately I don't know anything about the price, but interested Metalians should write to: Mario van der Heyden, `t Erf 22, NL-5374 AM Schayk.
