      Cryonic Temple's second album (2003).

      It's still nothing new in the heavy metal world, but 'Blood, Guts & Glory' (correct title, Amazon and dooyoo got it wrong - just read the artwork) is one of the most enjoyable classic/power metal releases I've heard in a long time. Fronted by the booming orations of Glen Metal, led by melodic twin guitars in the spirit of Iron Maiden and the pounding riffs of Helloween, this is a perfect forgery of late eighties metal resurrected fifteen years later for the loyal fans who remain.

      As delightfully fun as these songs are, they do tend to over-run by a minute or so and become repetitive, which makes their simplicity a double-edged sword. 'Mercenaries of Metal' is one of the most instantly loveable, though the notion of a trilogy doesn't extend beyond the lyrics into anything musically recognisable, and 'Swords and Diamonds' is probably the most accessible to a mainstream audience for stealing all of its ideas from the more well-known Iron Maiden.

      1. Morphine Dreams
      2. Mercenaries of Metal - The Quest, Part 1
      3. Inquisition - The Quest, Part 2
      4. Swords and Diamonds
      5. Thunder and Lightning
      6. The Story of the Sword
      7. Long Live the Warriors
      8. Triumph of Steel
      9. The Midas Touch (Samurai) - The Quest, Part 3
      10. Through the Skies
      11. Metal No. 1
