Today we are featuring another promising traditional power metal band; Heartscore, from Germany. We have reviewed their latest release; Black Riders, Pt 2, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

Heartscore – Black Riders Pt 2 Album Review

Heartscore is another promising traditional heavy/power metal band I have discovered about a month ago with their latest released full-length album; Black Riders Pt 2, which was released in 2019. It seems to me that Heartscore is a project of a few extremely passionate musicians. They are remarkably productive and continuing their careers since their first release in 2002, which is truly admirable. So we have taken a closer look at their latest album.

First of all, I’d like to say that the general music style of Heartscore is super traditional with its instrumentation, structures, and the vocalist’s singing style. I can sense some Blind Guardian, Ronnie James Dio, Iced Earth, Ozzy Osbourne and other traditional heavy metal influences in their latest album. However, they have processed them one more time, blended them all and created their own versions with much more sophisticated and progressive structures. Honestly, they have a delicious foundation here. Almost all metalheads, including me, love this kind of music style which has traditional roots on it and also keeps everything natural with no additional electronic elements. Black Riders Pt 2 in this way is like a beautiful story from the beginning to the end which has so many nostalgic things to offer.

As I have also mentioned above, Black Riders Pt 2 is a project of very talented musicians. You can easily tell this by listening to their instrumentation, partitions, and structures. However, the poor technical part of the job has caused huge damage to its overall potential and impact. In my opinion, this has played the biggest role in this album’s overall success. The general sound balancing is rather acceptable, yet the guitar tones (clean, solo and distorted) don’t sound professional at all. I am not sure if the rest of the instruments were played by someone or they are just software instruments. Briefly, I believe that this album could have been a game-changer release with proper production and recording for sure.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am still very positive about them. Heartscore has immediately earned our respects with their ideas, approach and of course with their incredible careers. They are great musicians. We strongly recommend them to work with a professional producer for their previously released or upcoming releases. This is just a small tip from a friend who values your great efforts, music and your future careers!
