Yeah it will be slow but there should be a few good things. I'm mostly looking forward to Battle Beast whom I love. The new single is nice but not amazing.Mind you the start to 2016 was awesome and it looks like 2017 will be a much slower start.Ain't that the truth.
Well the two new songs are pretty good. Ode to Leonidas particulary good. Henning Basse sounds a perfect fit. I didn't like Sundown Carpenter or Mats Leven in the band. Henning sounds great.Firewind – ImmortalsI'm not sure I'm very interested in Firewind without Apollo. Even with him they were getting less interesting, so I don't know what to expect from this. I should probably play it, since I already have it waiting for me.
I'm soso on them too but the new song sounds good to me.Black Star Riders – Heavy FireI didn't think the second album was nearly as good as the first, and Ricky's solo albums weren't much either, so I'm trying to hope they haven't run through their best material yet.
I love Bloodbound. Last album was great but I love cheesy classic power metal and Bloodbound never fails me on that score. Should be their usual anthemic epic metal shenangins.Bloodbound - War Of DragonsFor me, at least, they haven't made a good album without Urban. I'm sure I'll give this a chance, but Bloodbound is going to remain one of those big 'what ifs?'.
Don't worry things will pick up eventually and some albums probably haven't even been announced yet even. Hopefully some of these melodic albums may surprise you. I'm already looking forward to the Grave Digger album for a start and they've disappointed me for a good while now.
Other than what you mentioned, I don't know of much coming out at any point this year I'm interested in. I know stuff will come, but nothing has much hype behind it. This is the most depressing start to a year I can remember.
