Victorius is a German-based 5-piece Power Metal band founded in 2004, and after making a few line-up changes, The Awakening is their sophomore release.  The Germans (Helloween in particular) developed and coined the Power Metal concept, and Victorius shows again that if you want good, raw, in-your-face speed with technical precision that doesn’t compromise melody or catchiness, then you’re best bet is to look to the founding country to find the best in the industry.  Victorius has all the essential ingredients, and The Awakening impresses from start to finish.  Fans of Helloween and Gamma Ray should check this one out.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
