Had Queensrche never "grown up" beyond, say, 1984, they'd probably sound like Iron Fire, and one needn't delve too deep into the Danish power metal ensemble's seventh album, Voyage of the Damned, to arrive at this assumption.

Beyond this, Iron Fire, to their credit, actually put on a good show of instrumental prowess throughout this LP, and they admittedly don't commit that many more sins than your average power metal ensemble (emphasis on "average"), but suffice to say there's nothing groundbreaking or overly exciting to report when a few simplistic synth lines frequently draw the most attention to tracks like "Taken," "Leviathan," and "Realm of Madness." Actually, the fact that Voyage of the Damned's ham-fisted sci-fi metal was unveiled just days before the international geek holiday of 2-1-12, which of course celebrated Rush's original form-defining magnum op...
