This has some hallmarks of people furiously having a good time.

This is somewhat of a resurgence for Enfarce having originally surfaced as Enforce in 2001 with two EPs in 2002 and 2004. Either way, what a name and will there be a second time for Enfarce? On this evidence, they may well have several chances. This Finnish foray nominally offer Power Metal in the way of Helloween, Gamma Ray and Edguy that they say they do, but there's more going on than that. Ricky Tournee has a real Metal belt (not the type that keeps his leather trousers up) and as the songs progress, they lift their skirts and give a glimpse of their style, a little Hard Rock here, a touch of Melodic Rock there, even a little AOR.

And so 'I'm A Hero' and 'Gift Of Prophecy' give us the double kicks, twinkling synths and attacking riffs that you expect and it's all done well, but they lead out with more of a Hard Rock considered feel. 'Redeemer From The Stars' has all the signifiers too, all jammed together but given air and a commercial sheen which shouts "oy, give us a chance!" and 'All Hope Is Lost' then seals the deal with a pristine example of the genre.

But 'Dawn Damage' beautifully confounds. It wheels in an organ and a Bluesy basis to tickle us with Classic Rock, soulful vocals and all, memorable melodies; it all works so well. 'Delusions Of Reality' tries this too, a softer side emerging through smoky guitars but mashing together a Power chorus but not entirely successfully.

Saddled with a silly science fiction concept (an inhuman superhero, Steel Enforcer who succumbs to earthly challenges) and seen as a cartoon band on their publicity, this has some hallmarks of people furiously having a good time and calls on some guitarist friends (Matias Kupiainen – Stratovarious and Francesco Fareri – Virtual Mind) to bulk out the appeal which you won't need; the music will do that all on its own.
