Tales From Bandcamp: When Lightning Strikes by Drakkar

Click to go to the Bandcamp pageLast year there was one power metal release that really caught my ear.  Drakkar’s When Lightning Strikes was a thorough dose of soaring guitars, melodic vocals, and all round powerful power metal all tied together with a neat sci-fi narrative.  What I really liked about the record was that it had all those fun sensibilities I love about power metal but was able to maintain a mature and modern tone and not come of hammy.  To keep things short I’ll just link my review of the album here if you would like something more in-depth to read about the album.  I also did an interview with band founder and guitarist Dario Beretta and you can read that here.  But, if anything, what you should really do is click on the play button below and give When Lightning Strikes a listen.  Let us know what you though.  Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!
