Gloryful are a band from Germany that plays a very epic sounding hybrid of heavy and power metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Warriors Code" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with no blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine traditional and power metal together to create a sound of their own with a great amount of melody being thrown into t he riffing, while the lead guitars are very old school and melodic sounding heavy/power metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars which are only utilized briefly use finger picking and full chords to add more epic qualities to the recording.
Vocals a re mostly clean signing heavy/power metal vocals with some back up shouts being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover fantasy, epic and heavy metal themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, old school and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Gloryful are a very great sounding epic hybrid of heavy and power metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band.
