Warleggion - Knock Me Down

This is an interesting one. The Brazilian metal scene has obviously been turning out heavy metal gems for years. The latest offering in this cycle is the debut full length from Warleggion. Coming two years after their EP, Warleggion, the band has found a few interesting steps forward that set them apart as one of the great true metal bands to come from their country in recent years. While they are certainly some moments that border on the corny, and as a general rule the production is a bit muddy, this is still a very fun listen for metalheads of all stripes. 

There is a certain magic to the hammy side of the band. Yes these moments won't please metal purists, but I don't get the sense that is Warleggions goal. What these guys are trying to do is right heavy metal that is fun and over the top. They tell tales of battles and honor. Days of yore when grand things happened. It provides a nice escape from the ongoing misery that is the Coronavirus pandemic. It's so fun to sink your teeth into the magic of this record and just take a break for a little while. Take the time to enjoy the grandiose weirdness and fun atmospheres that Warleggion so eagerly bring. This is a very earnest record and one that will have fans of the genre enamored. 

Yes, there are tropes here that you've heard before but the tropes are awesome. As a general rule the talent is solid though and with some cleaner production in the future they will be able to position themselves to become something even greater. Warleggion is a strong first offering and one that tells us the band is in a position to start to do more soon if they keep at it and stay serious. There are stripped back elements that need polishing, but in so many ways, Warleggion remind us here why heavy metal is the law - no matter where you're from!

  1. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
