Sadly, any momentum the album might have begun to build is rudely disrupted by "Black Wings Up High," which takes all of the negative qualities of "Fall of Pandemonium" (well, okay, it doesn't have the muppet vocals) without any of the positive aspects. There is one generic, simple riff that is beaten down, over and over, for five long minutes, and the vocal lines range from mediocre to decent, something that might be forgiven with even the semblance of enjoyable guitar work, but we don't get that. The Black Tower picks up right where the masterful Riddle of Steel (2014) left off. In fact, if anything this one is even more singular, due primarily to its even more varied and eclectic mix of metal genres. Epic heavy metal means a lot of things to a lot of different people, bands included. Sons of Crom know how to get at that Cimmerian melancholy like no others in the business – it’s not all about fun and violence.

But Sons of Crom soar right over that bar with their new album, The Black Tower. Over eight tracks, they deliver a variety of sounds from classic and traditional heavy metal, black metal, thrash metal, plus folk and even classical music. The Black Tower comes across like a soundtrack for a high-budget action movie, moving from a classical-inspired introduction to its full range of sounds before ending on a classical note again. It will be released through Bindrune Recordings in North America and Nordvis Produktion in Europe on August 18.
