Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars 8 DEADLY SINS is concept album about a man lying in his death bed and remembering the positive and negative things he has done in his life. The sound is usual for Manticora - speed power metal with some Iron Maiden influences. Differently from early works, the band left their Iron Maiden imitations in their past ( what doesn't means that you wouldn't hear still many of Maiden-ish moments on this album).

But another element they are mixing in their sound now is power metal borrowed from Helloween. Just add faster rhythm, trashy Metallica moments to this Scandinavian metal mix, and you can perfectly imagine, what this album is alike.

To be honest, musicians all are competent, so the main problem there is lack of originality.

And if for collectors of all possible heavy metal music on the world this album could be just regular average victim, for those searching for style and originality this work is just another heavy metal album. You choose.

P.S. This band doesn't play keyboards based prog metal as stated in bio. It will be strange for quartet of two guitars,bass and drums, isn't it?
