HARDWARES

CIVIL WAR

The Killer Angels

(Despotz Records)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 7.0

Melodic power metal band CIVIL WAR is made up of four-sixths of former members of SABATON, plus ASTRAL DOORS’ vocalist Nils Patrik Johansson. Departing Sabaton after 2012’s Carolus Rex album, guitarists Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, drummer Daniel Mullback and keyboardist Daniel Mÿhr regrouped with one of the best power metal vocalists around to create its debut full length album, The Killer Angels. Civil War is not necessarily Sabaton 2.0, but they don’t stray to far from their former band’s territory. Johansson’s unavoidable Dio comparisons abound, but they take on a different dynamic mixed with these players compared to his work in Astral Doors. The keyboards are present within each song, but the guitars do most of the talking with this band compared to Sabaton. There’s chant-able choruses, glorious melodies, galloping rhythms and soaring vocals galore on The Killer Angels. By writing about historical themes, the band has hit upon some challenging and interesting compositions with lyrics that are pretty entertaining and inspiring. Standout track, ‘Saint Patrick’s Day,’ is a lesson in power metal precision. Its epic, battle-forging sound, soaring chorus and galloping riffs marching in unison with a melodic, Celtic-flavored guitar lead really defines Civil War’s overall sound. The Killer Angels is nothing you haven’t heard before, especially from the band members’ previous outfits, but it’s an enjoyable slab of power metal nonetheless.
