                There is nothing wrong with being in a band which has a cult status and Screaming Shadows fall into this category as the Italian band step into the breach once more for their first album in a decade with their fifth album ‘Legacy of Stone’.

                As an album, ‘Legacy of Stone’ sounds exactly as it should for a Screaming Shadows album, it combines elements of both power and heavy metal exceptionally well, from its twin guitar flourishes and galloping rhythms to its dynamo-drumming and soaring vocals. This is album which is all wrapped up with a decent production which allows it to accomplish everything that it sets out to do with ease as tracks such as ‘Free Me’, ‘Stand in Line’ and ‘Crimes With No Name’ deliver an enjoyable metal experience. This means that ‘Legacy of Stone’ has all the classic appeal of Iron Maiden, Tygers of Pan Tang and Dio, but also something a little more contemporary having large swathes of Edguy with vocalist Alessandro Marras touching on the dynamics of Tobias Sammet and Bruce Dickinson.

                With ‘Legacy of Stone’, Screaming Shadows have delivered something that is more than decent. There isn’t much that hasn’t been done before, but they do deliver an album of experience which may be a little safe, but it is enjoyable nonetheless.
