Finnish metalers Burning Point have really impressed me with their past releases. In 2014 the band added Nitte Valo (ex- Battlebeast) as the their new lead vocalist. After hearing and becoming accustomed to the band with a male vocalist, I was curious how the band would sound with female vocals. Good. Quite good, actually. Burning Point sounds re-energized with Nitte at the helm. She has a great vocal range and adds a little bit of neo-classical feel to the already powerful sound the band has developed. Reminiscent of Leather Leone of Chastain, Valo adds an extra layer that gives this album a real punch. While the album is great as a whole, my favorite tracks are “The Lie”, “Chaos Rising” “The King Is Dead, Long Live The Queen” and “Metal Queen” which is a well done cover of the Lee Aaron classic.  For those craving a great power metal album, this is the one to get. A solid effort by a band that truly delivers the goods.
