Spirits of Fire is like the third release featuring Tim Ripper Owens on vocals in about as many months. Ripper must be working harder than a one-legged cat trying to bury a turd on a frozen pond to have this many albums in the works at practically the same time.  Vocally and musically, this reminds me a lot of the two studio albums that Owens recorded with the mighty Judas Priest.  That’s not a bad thing.  I actually like Owens’ work in Judas Priest and I think a lot of other listeners did too, but following up Rob Halford as the lead vocalist of Judas Priest in a rough task for anyone to under take no matter how talented they are.  With a such a large body of work with Halford as the voice of  Judas Priest, it was just a hard thing for fans to accept.  Enter Chris Caffery who previously played with Savatage.  Now, put these two talents together and you get a heavy metal record for heavy metal fans.  A metal nerd’s dream come true.  One of my favorite tracks in Stand And Fight but honestly, I prefer to listen this album as a whole thing than separate it into singles.  Blazing from your speakers like the soundtrack to a real-time heavy metal movie, this is music with the true Spirits Of Fire. Metal horns held high for this album!
