Iron Mask is a very melodic and energetic neoclassical power metal band led by guitarist Dushan Petrossi (also of Magic Kingdom). Hordes of the Brave is their second disc, but since I've never heard their debut release, I have no idea how they've evolved and progressed. That said, judging by its own merits, the album impresses with its huge production work that sucks the listener in and with its vast array of guests who grace this album. Oliver Hartmann (ex-At Vance, Empty Tremor) not only recorded the vocals of this album, but also sang on three numbers: "The Invisible Empire", "Crystal Tears" and "Iced Wind of the North". Fans of older At Vance are going to love these songs, not to mention the other tracks sung by the new vocalist.

The other tunes are successfully delivered by Goetz Mohre whose singing is highly evocative of Graham Bonnet and Jorn Lande. After listening to the album the first few times, I likened him to Oliver Hartmann a bit, but felt the three songs with Hartmann were more to my liking. However, closer listening revealed that Mohre's vocals were exactly what gave Iron Mask's sophomore output its replay value. This guy is amazing; he does the typical Euro power metal style high pitched singing on the opening song "Holy War", belts out killer screams on the likes of "High in the Sky" or simply creates excellent vocal harmonies on "Freedom's Blood" or the album's masterwork "Alexander the Great", who the album is a tribute to. Easily the kind of song that makes me love this overdone genre, "Alexander the Great" employs a dark musical tapestry that makes me think of Kamelot's The Black Halo (which is so far the best power metal disc of the year), a mystical atmosphere, and mid-paced, crunchy guitar riffs.

Dushan Petrossi's Iron Mask...

this album kicks ass, It's of corse a concept album

from first track to the last I was completely in epic metal heaven, first class vocals by 2 different singers, and Killer guitar riffs and leads by Dushan, highlights are track 7. "Alexander The Great" wow a masterpiece and track 8. This dude is what David Coverdale should be doing instead of "cock rock"

This album is SOLID. It has great straight forward rythm and mid tempo vocals that can get slightly high at fleeting moments. Obviously it has great musicianship and it has a solid list of songs. It sounds like a classic metal album to a point, but has the typical power metal anthem thing going. A must for any power metal or even a classic metal fan, and to anyone who likes bands like Iron Maiden, Iced Earth, and Hammerfall.

"Hordes of the brave" is the second studio album by Belgian neoclassical metal band "Iron Mask" originally released in 2005. Amongst fans of the genre "Iron Mask" are recognized as the musical vehicle of guitar hero Dushan Petrozzi; yet "Hordes of the Brave" features a group of talented performers who match the mastermind in performance quality.

Lead singer Val Halla Jr. is one of the greatest voices in contemporary neoclassical metal with a tone and distorted vibrato practically identical to Graham Bonnett and Stephen Fredrik. It would be fair to say that Val Halla does steal the show on "Hordes of the Brave" delivering such stellar melodic metal moments adding depth and almost another musical dimension to Dushan's compositions.

Equally important is the contribution of keyboardist Richard Andersson, known from such solo projects as "Space Odyssey" and "Majestic" who dresses the melodic guitar lines with his own keyboard orchestrations a-la "Royal Hunt" which in turn grants a different flavor to "Hordes of the Braves".

Songs like "Freedom's blood", "Holy War", "Crystal Tears" and "My eternal flame" are indeed the cream of neoclassical metal even though they tend to be overlooked by fans of the genre. Fans of early "Firewind", "Royal Hunt" and "Golden Resurrection", should definitely give this incredible release a chance.
