Sarpedon is a 4-man band from Norway, and Anomic Nation is their debut release. Sarpedon plays an interesting mix of Progressive Metal, vacillating between the realms of Power Metal and the depths of Doomy Thrash Metal. Anomic Nation’s production is excellent … there’s a true “wall of sound” that’s damn near overwhelming (if not encompassing) in every track, and sparring (yet tasteful) use of keyboards and choirs provide added musical dimensions. The only drawback with Sarpedon is front man Erik Krokfjord’s vocal style – there’s plenty of talent, but his slow, ghoulish delivery doesn’t blend well with Sarpedon’s otherwise spectacular soundscape.

    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.
