They have become static, the men around ex-gamma-ray vocalist Ralf Scheepers and jack-of-all-trades Mat Sinner. On the one hand they are a paragon of Konstanz, on the other hand almost every song on their eighth studio work "Unbreakable" is predictable. Of course, the fans will love and appreciate it just as much, even if Primal Fear will go in circles with him and only allow innovations in homeopathic doses. In spite of good will one will hardly discover anything here that has not been produced before by Primal Fear or Judas Priest. If you ignore it and instead let yourself in on the Teutonic metalheads, some of their songs radiate charm. Whenever they seek direct proximity to Priest, such as in "Unbreakable (Part Two)", they are unbeatable for six minutes. During their excursions in Helloween regions ("Marching Again") they unfortunately do not succeed in this feat. The guitar work of Alex Beyrodt must certainly be praised. In this form he is one of the best German metal guitarists.
