Another mouthful-of-a-title from these guys, but they are going back to Shakespeare for the narrative, which could be cool. They were starting to stagnate and the last album didn't do much for me. Still have one of the best vocalists in the genre.

Rebellion was once among my favorite bands but after the band nearly fell apart after the conclusion of the Viking trilogy, the band has only released average records. It seems as if they have said and done everything they needed to already. I'm not expecting too much here.

I haven't listened to all of their discography, but I have found them to be hit or miss. I think Miklagard is one of the great examples of iconic German power/heavy metal. Super gruff and gritty, but upbeat and catchy at the same time. Arminus was really boring for me though and I thought the latest was somewhere in the middle.

I was a little disappointed by Arise and the album after it, and it's kinda prevented me from checking them out further.

Miklagard is a cracking album to this day though. They really struck it gold with that one. I was just playing guitar along to Ulfberth this morning.

Well, I was actually somewhat disappointed by Miklagard after the immense riffs of Tragedy in Steel (god, that main riff in The Prophecy, one of my favourites ever) and Sagas of Iceland, Arise was even blander, then Uwe left and I wondered what the point of them still continuing was, since surely he was the link between them and Grave Digger's The Clans Are Marching...

But somehow I'm excited by this. A metal Lear? With all the Gloucester eye-gouging?

Just hope they get some better actors than they did for Macbeth...
