KH Panda Z Absolutely adore this album. One of the best albums of last year and I think one that will constantly be in my rotation. Such a great representation of cheesy power metal that makes the genre so fun. It's an absolute blast from start to finish.
Can't wait to hear more from these guys in the future. Favorite track: The Fiery Seas And Icy Winds.

Arrogant Bastard Big ups to eldritch_elitist for bringing this to my attention!
As mentioned, the parallels between Dragonforce and Angra are immediately apparent. The scorching speed and melodicism Shadowstrike display will tantalize any cheddar head. The soaring symphonics and lyrics add an element of cheese previously unattainable or possibly undiscovered.
Follow your heart and true love will be born.
Favorite track: Gales Of Winter.

eldritch_elitist Just when I think my interest in power metal is starting to permanently wane, Legends of Human Spirit comes along and makes me totally feel like a kid again. ShadowStrike's sound, reminiscent of Sonic Firestorm-era DragonForce with added symphonic and progressive leanings, is exactly the kind of music I would have made as a teenager, and the sheer passion they exude makes this album's 65 minute runtime a breeze to listen through. This is absolutely going on my year-end list, and is essential listening for fans of melodic, fast-paced power metal. Favorite track: Gales Of Winter.

Certified Bryan The wait was so worth it. This is one of the best power metal albums of 2019 and you have to hear it. Favorite track: Fly With Me.

Tommy Parnelle 5 long years, and worth every second of waiting. So happy this is finally out for the world to hear and cherish. This is easily one of the very best symphonic power metal releases of the genre. Favorite track: Gales Of Winter.

bluemaxima Legends of Human Spirit reminds me of the DragonForce that we lost after ZP left the band.

I can't give it much higher praise than that. Favorite track: Gales Of Winter.
