Dragonbreath are a band from Cyprus that plays a very traditional form of heavy metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 demo "Deadly Strike".
Fantasy movie samples start off the demo and after the intro the music goes into an early 80's style metal direction along with some high pitched power metal vocals and a great amount of NWOBHM influences and the music also brings in a great amount of melody along with some back up shouts being used in certain sections of the recording.
When solos and leads are utilized they bring in a huge Iron Maiden influence to the bands musical style along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them an d there is also a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts present throughout the recording and all of the tracks sound like they could of easily been recorded and released in the early 80's and the last track also brings in a brief use of clean playing.
Dragonbreath plays a very traditional style of heavy metal that goes back to the early 80's sound mixing the NWOBHM sound in with some influences from some of the early German and American heavy/power metal bands of that era to demonstrate a very true style of metal, the production sounds very old school and retro bringing in a vintage 80's sound while the lyrics cover fantasy themes.
In my opinion Dragonbreath are a very great sounding traditional heavy metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Braveheart" and "Deadly Strike". 8 out of 10.
