Burning Point are once again a band from Finland playing melodic power metal. Although the term power metal is used to describe their music, Burning Point's outcome is actually a blend of today's modern power metal and traditional heavy metal. This is their sophomore album and some certain development since the debut album can be heard. The style is naturally pretty much the same but the songwriting has taken a step forward. Also the vocalist/guitar player Pete Ahonen's singing is much better than on the debut album. He sounds pleasant to the ears as he isn't the typical tie-my-balls kind of high-pitched singer, but a more "manly" sounding. The songs themselves are rather simple and predictable, so there aren't too many surprises here, but that's no drawback since everything is done so well. Still, at times the music gets a bit repetitive. The riffs are nice, again nothing groundbreaking, but they work. All in all the song material is quite even. The "hit song" is missing but so are the low points as there's no filler material here. The album is in nice balance between faster bits and some slower tunes. Most of the songs are damn catchy and before you know it, you're humming along. Although the band's outcome is pounding heavy, the production is somewhat soft, not bad in any way, but leaves something to hope for. The guitar solos are quite the usual shredding, nothing groundbreaking, but neither anything to complain about. Pasi Hiltula (Kalmah) makes a guest appearance as a keyboard player and his playing adds a semi-symphonic touch to some of the tracks.
As the band's name and the album title indicate: these guys are on fire!
