If you combine the catchiness of the good Europe and Helloween songs with the slightly tricky metal art, as a Yngwie Malmsteen was able to celebrate in his good times, you come quite close to the sound of the Swedish Dynazty. Singer Nils Molin is variable enough to roar both heart-rending crooning and hearty into the mic. "Renatus" is already their fourth album and in their Swedish homeland the quintet is a medium size band. Dynazty also manage again and again to incorporate a kind of second level into their songs, which makes it exciting to hear them again and again. On the other hand, their sound often seems a bit overloaded. The line between kitsch and craftsmanship is narrow. When she takes it balladesquely as in "Salvation", the otherwise so powerful band seems strangely thin. But their big plus is their two guitarists Love Magnusson and Jonathan Olsson, who always give the whole thing a pleasant hardness. In addition, they have their short solos in the best Helloween manner.
