Dynazty are, without a doubt, one of the most reliable metal bands around! About every two years, they gift us with their latest collection of stellar melodic power metal. In 2020, we saw the release of the outstanding “THE DARK DELIGHT”. Here we are in 2022 and, like clockwork, their 8th album, “FINAL ADVENT” arrives.

For those not familiar with Dynazty, their music could best be described as hook laden melodic power metal with heavy modern flavorings. The musicianship is astounding and is centered around the remarkable almost rhythmic vocals of Nils Molin, who also supplies clean vocals for Amaranthe. Guitarists Love Magnusson and Mikael Laver deliver thick down-tuned riffs and mind-blowing dexterous blistering leads. The thunderous driving bottom end provided by Jonathan Olsson and Georg Härnsten Egg are the perfect foundation to build these modern melodic metal compositions upon.

If forced to sum this album up in one word, that word would be… urgent! The tunes move along at a frantic pace. Things get going immediately with the roaring opener “Power Of Will.” Next up is the rollicking energetic “Advent” complete with vocal acrobatics from Nils and some incredible lead work from Magnusson and Laver. “Natural Born Killer” follows, with more infectious pounding rhythms laid down effortlessly by Olsson and Härnsten Egg. Yet again, stunning vocals and scorching leads make this a true standout track. The rest of the tunes continue to flow much the same way, feverishly moving along and never staying put for too long.

Listening to FINAL ADVENT is much like riding a favorite roller coaster that goes from 0-60mph in less than 2 seconds. Right out of the gate, the ride is fast and exhilarating. The twists and turns can’t be seen, but you know they’re coming and the anticipation only adds to the already heightened heart pumping experience. When the ride is over all too quickly, you HAVE to ride again…and again…and again! Dynazty have provided one hell of a rush with FINAL ADVENT. Pick this up without hesitation. It’s that good!
