BORN IN EXILE ”Transcendence”

(Art Gates Records)

Battle Helm Rating

I am not the greatest expert on progressive metal. And even so on contemporary progressive metal. That I don’t even know what it means. But since I am one massive metalhead I’ll tackle everything once. And then I take it from there. So that is what I’ll do with this album too. After an intro it all happened. Everything I had feared this to be was blown away. Call it whatever you like, I’ll call it heavy metal. This one turned quickly into a fave of mine. I love an album that knocks you immediately and just leave you sitting there with your mouth open in awe. That is what this album done to me. I just sit here and take in every single note in pure excitement. I get the same feeling listening to this as I got hearing Halford’s “Resurrection” the first time. This is why I love heavy metal so much. And why metal is the greatest music in the world. Anders Ekdahl
