Power Paladin - 'Righteous Fury' (live at Andkristni 2021)

Far away, through times of array
Our order has guarded the magical strength
Have no fear, salvation is near
(The) long arm of the law brings imposters to heel

For I am the one who has wielded the light
My shield holds the power of eternal sight
The darkness succumbs to my holy steel of might

Seventh day, we've entered the cave
The light of the elders has shown us the way
Our hearts as strong as steel
Our power grows with every monster we slay

For deep in the temple we will find the way
Our sacrifice worth every life we will save
The kingdom of light will endure another day

Call of the warrior
Fires of faith alight
Wings of Elunia
Guide my way tonight

You've chosen the path that will lead to your death
Your entrails will boil at the touch of my poisonous breath

Call of the warrior
Fires of faith alight
Wings of Elunia
Guide my way tonight

«Iceland has such a great representation of extreme metal. We didn’t feel we had much to add to that scene so why shouldn’t we do the complete opposite?» αναρωτήθηκαν κάποιοι μουσικοί στην Ισλανδία προ τετραετίας και δημιούργησαν τους Power Paladin, οι οποίοι μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι:

«Imagine deserted volcanic wasteland, freezing winds and the all-embracing darkness of the longest winters on this planet: The obvious inspiration for rather vicious and somber tunes for lonely evening hours that the biggest part of Iceland’s heavy music scene is known for.

Who would even dare to think of tales about brave warriors and mystical creatures coming from such an island? Power metal seemed like a fairytale until 2017 when Reykjavík based sextet Power Paladin (originally founded as Paladin) rose in quest of carrying out their uplifting tunes and finally proving everyone wrong. On an island known for its musical doom and gloom, they are the midnight sun.

Μετά από ένα single ("Kraven the Hunter") που κυκλοφόρησε στα τελειώματα του 2020 οι Ισλανδοί power metal metallers "έβγαλαν" και τον πρώτο "ολοκληρωμένο" τους δίσκο, ο οποίος φέρει τον τίτλο "With the Magic of Windfyre Steel" και "βγήκε" στις αρχές του έτους...

Ο δίσκος των Power Paladin 'With the Magic of Windfyre Steel'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Amongst metal circles, Iceland gets the seal of approval when it comes to the extreme field of music - acts like Sólstafir, Kontinuum and Audn, but also young classic rockers such as The Vintage Caravan have carried the music from the island state in the farthest corner of the European North West out into the world.

Power Paladin, launched in Reykjavík in 2017 as Iceland’s first and only Power Metal band, is now enriching the volcanic island. Power Paladin draw their influence from fantasy literature and the Heavy Metal greats of the 80s and 90s such as Edguy, Rhapsody, Helloween and Blind Guardian. The sextet holds a certain glam-touch and loves to ride past magical forests, castles and fire-breathing dragons at maximum speed.

The mammoth hymn “Kraven The Hunter”, Power Paladin’s debut limited 7“ single, simultaneously marks the first physical release on Atomic Fire. It’s quite a fitting debut for such an unparalleled catchy tune, which is in no way inferior to the full-length debut album, euphonically entitled “With The Magic Of Windfyre Steel”.

The band offers up hyper-melodic, fast, but always catchy Power Metal, all of the above reflecting one main topic: fun! Recorded in the summer of 2020, the nine numbers will finally be revealed to the metal community that has gained an absolute highlight. Power Paladin undoubtedly holds the future!»

Power Paladin: «In a land of ancient prophecies and magic, torn asunder by eons of war and hardship. Our heroes venture forth, mourning the loss of their emperor king, as they search for the dark crystal to bring back balance to the realm.

But in order to succeed they must survive the onslaught from the kingdom of the elves and wizards wielding foul and dark magic. These last weeks since our album release have been one big uplifting, flattering and in many ways humbling experience.

When we started out recording this album our first idea was to cast it out to the cosmos via Spotify and YouTube and maybe create vinyls for all the members in the band.

Seeing all these positive (and negative, it’s amazing even just to be acknowledged) reactions from press, listeners and charts makes us beyond grateful to both the people that did all the amazing work putting this out there and the people who tossed their hard earned coins to buying this album.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all!»
