Their debut album "Beyond
the moon" is full of melodic Metal. Lots of double-base drumming,
clean and rough, but excellent guitar playing from Johan Abelsson, the
acoustic parts sounds beautiful. And Peter Sigfridsson has the perfect
voice, pleasant and powerful. There are some Stryper connections, the
sing-a-longs in the choruses for example. The keyboard playing from Samuel

these guys are a faster, heavier and modern version of Stryper I think!.
Christian metal rocks again!
