Sometimes, a veteran headbanger will throw his/her admirers a major curve ball. The rap-metal/alternative metal that Tommy Lee offered on his Methods of Mayhem project of 1999, for example, was a total departure from the decadent Sunset Strip boogie that his former band, M?tley Cre, was best known for in the '80s. But other times, metal's veterans celebrate their past, which is what Mercyful Fate alumni Michael Denner and Hank Shermann do on Force of Evil's self-titled debut album. The Danish's band's three other members are lead singer Martin Steene (of Ironfire fame), drummer Bjarne Holm (who joined Mercyful Fate in 1995 -- long after their '80s heyday), and bassist Hal Patino (best known for backing Mercyful Fate's original lead singer, King Diamond, after he went solo). When four of a band's five members have some connection to either Mercyful Fate the band or King Diamond the solo artist, one expects a dose of '80s-style metal -- and that is exactly what Force of Evil provide on this release. From the gothic, occult-minded themes to Force of Evil's amplified sense of melody, this album sounds like it could have been recorded in 1984 or 1985 instead of 2003. But if the material (which is power metal bordering on thrash) is less than groundbreaking, Force of Evil still deserve credit for craftsmanship. Like Mercyful Fate, Force of Evil don't govern by brute force alone. They're loud and forcefully aggressive, but they're also quite melodic, intricate, and musical -- and, of course, that is exactly how one would describe Mercyful Fate and Diamond as well as Iron Maiden, Queensr?che, Judas Priest, and many other power metal bands that were popular in the '80s. Force of Evil's debut isn't in a class with Mercyful Fate's most essential '80s recordings or King Diamond's best solo output, but it's a solid and enjoyable, if derivative, effort that will appeal to headbangers who still can't get enough of classic '80s power metal. ~ Alex Henderson
