Sacred Oath: World on Fire

American Heavy/Power Metal
3.5/5.0

The renaissance of America's Sacred Oath has been noted across the Internet, including Dangerdog Music Reviews, for 2007's Darkness Visible and last years self-titled epic. With this year's World on Fire is a third time a charm? Well, the answer is clearly muddled, yes and no.

Essentially, World on Fire is a follow up to last year's Sacred Oath, similar but hardly breaking new ground. World on Fire could be dismissed as the same thing in a new year. And you would probably be right. But that's too easy of a summation. World on Fire, while classic elemental American metal, circa mid-Eighties (with hints of NWOBHM), is almost inspiring in that very same traditional redundancy.

Huh? What did you just say?

I'm not sure myself.

Okay, let's be more simple, with greater clarity. World on Fire is a fine album of American melodic heavy/power metal. If you dig everything that has preceded World on Fire, you will love this album. Nevertheless, this work is ingeniously derivative. What the hell? If you got a good thing going, then roll with it. Recommended.
