2 stars I gladly admit I have problems with symphonic progressive metal bands like Royal Hunt.

I cannot stand the vocals and the semi-hard sound. I cannot stand the sweetladen football terraces choirs too which this genre is so full of. Most of the symphonic progressive metal is also overburdened with a plastic digital sound and emotional songs which simply sounds false in my ears. Symphonic progressive metal is for young males with far too many testerone injections.

Fear has plenty of the things I detest. But thankfully, there is some good references to the likes of Rainbow here. That and the good keyboards is the only saving grace on this album. Fear is devoid of any good songs and that has become it's undoing in my ears. With no good songs, albums from this genre falls flat on it's face. But I am sure Royal Hunt is a good band. But Fear is not a good album. Hence my generously two stars.
