This is one rock solid cd, from sweet riffage and shredding solos to some catchy choruses. Job well executed from the Cauldron.

Chained to the nite is an awesome Cd, and Burning Fortune is a great follow up. If you want more of the same sound from these guys, then buy this CD! This CD is original to their style and sound. If you are looking for something different... find another band. You will not be disappointed with either of these CD's from Cauldron.

One of the brighter stars in the so-called New Wave of Traditional Metal, Canadian band Cauldron made a good first impression in 2009 with Chained to the Nite (Bonus CD). Now they're back with a follow-up album titled Burning Fortune, and continuing to raise the banner of traditional heavy metal.

A relatively brief affair (nine songs clocking in at just over 38 minutes), Burning Fortune sounds a lot like Cauldron's debut (about 50% Iron Maiden and 50% Dokken), but the band is better at just about everything this time around. The musicianship is tighter, the vocals are a bit more powerful, and the songwriting is noticeably improved. Old school metal anthems like "All or Nothing" and "Rapid City/Unchained Assault" are paired with hair metal rockers like "Tears Have Come" and "Taken By Desire." And like Chained to the Nite, Burning Fortune includes a cover song, this time Halloween's "I Confess." It's a great combination of classic metal sounds, and makes for a very enjoyable album.

Between new albums by Twisted Tower Dire, Benedictum, Wolf and hopefully Widow and White Wizzard, 2011 is shaping up to be a great year for traditional metal. Add Cauldron to that list, as Burning Fortune is one of the better releases this year. If you're a fan of old school heavy metal, you definitely don't want to miss this one.

Customers that are debating over the idea to order this album ought to check it out. Cauldron is a hell of a band for being a trio that can rock out

First off, production sucks, but I wouldn't have rated it a two just based on that. Altough, I'm ok with a little cheese, the songs are too cheesy, repetitive, uninspired, and unoriginal. There are two or three good songs on this album. I would have given them a one, but it takes balls to play old school metal so I give em a two. Looking for something similar, but 10x better? Try Enforcer.

If you like 80's hair metal, then this is for you.

However, I find it ironic this album pops up in threads from bands like 'Blood Ceremony' and 'Ghost'. Those albums are fantastic; heavy, progressive (but not 'Prog', more like they're pushing boundaries) and occult. Cauldron sound like every 80's hair metal band I've heard smashed up into one, but with de-tuned guitars.

So, if you like 80's stuff, go ahead, but don't let the album cover fool you, this is no 70's occult/doom revival.
