The fourth full-length album from Nightwish guitarist Emppu Vuorinen and company is a mixed but rewarding bag, from Indelible Heroes, marking rock’s fallen icons (‘Thank god for strong men and Motörhead,’ sings Pekka Heino) to an Eye Of The Tiger-style lighter-waving anthem called Taste Of A Champion. Overall, though, this is great stuff and well worth checking out.
