Battleroar is a traditional epic heavy metal band formed in Athens in September 2000.The roots of the band’s style sink deep into the sound of legendary 80s American and European bands such as Manilla Road, Omen, Cirith Ungol, Brocas Helm, Manowar, Jag Panzer and Heavy Load. The band’s name was in fact taken from the lyrics to Heavy Load’s song ‘Singing Swords’ (‘I loved the Battleroar’).Their first album Battleroar (2005) and their second album Age of Chaos (2006) were received very well in the metal underground. In 2008 the third album ‘To Death and Beyond’ was released and it received excellent reviews worldwide. Battleroar is also known for being a good live band and they have played all over Europe, including Spain, Italy, Ireland, Belgium and Germany.In 2009 the band parted ways with guitar player Manolis Karazeris and vocalist Marco Concoreggi. They were temporarily replaced by Stelios Sovolos on guitar and John Papanikolaou (ex Innerwish) on vocals. This line-up played some shows in Holland and Greece.In September 2010 the band announced that Antreas Sotiropoulos (Everdome, Wolfcry) is the permanent new guitar player.Currently the band is working on new music and rehearsing every week, while searching thoroughly for a new singer that they feel is right for the band.
Greece's Battleroar have been around since 2000 and Codex Epicus is their fifth full-length over that span. Like the previous release, 2014's Blood of Legends, Codex Epicus is full of sweeping, epic heavy metal punctuated by big riffs and bigger drums. Truly, the drumming of Gregory Vlachos is the engine that drives the Battleroar machine forward and it's hard not to get carried away with them. And this comes from someone who is more of a guitar guy. Gerrit Mutz' vocals have never been high on my list and I find his warbling delivery slightly off-putting but after a few spins, just like the last album, they do start to sync up with the music somewhat. Tracks like "We Shall Conquer" and "The Doom of Medusa" stand out and there isn't a bad track on the album. But wait, there's a surprise; Manilla Road's Mark Shelton lends his vocals and guitar to "Sword and the Flame," an awesome, moody song about fighting demons, it is worth buying the album for by itself. I'm not as blown away as I would be for Manilla Road or Atlantean Kodex, but Battleroar are a quality epic heavy metal band and Codex Epicus a solid release.
