Album Review

In the '90s and early to mid-2000s, the power metal revival movement was a largely European phenomenon. Germany, Holland, Italy, and the Scandinavian countries were full of young Gen-X and Gen-Y bands that were caught in a stylistic time warp and modeled themselves after the old-school power metal warriors of the '70s and '80s. But largely European doesn't mean exclusively European, and Cellador is among the power metal revival outfits that has come from the United States. This Omaha, NE, outfit didn't exist until 2004 — and even though all of the band's members were in their late teens or early twenties when they recorded their debut album, Enter Deception, in late 2005 and early 2006, their sound is right out of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Helloween. No one in Cellador was even born when Priest gave listeners Hell Bent for Leather in 1979 or when Maiden's first official full-length album came out in 1980, but their intense yet melodic approach clearly recalls power metal's heyday. Cellador do tend to be faster and thrashier than a lot of other power metal revival bands; in that sense, Enter Deception brings to mind Priest's 1990 gem, Painkiller, which was the most thrash-influenced project that Rob Halford and friends recorded during that era. But despite having a bit of thrash and speed metal appeal, there is no question that Cellador are a power metal band first and foremost. No one who knows his/her metal history will give Enter Deception the grand prize for originality; there's nothing even remotely groundbreaking on this decent but highly derivative effort. Regardless, the songs are likable and well executed, and Cellador demonstrate that a power metal revival unit doesn't have to be from Europe to be worthwhile.

Following in the footsteps of legendary European bands like Helloween and Blind Guardian, as well as more recent success stories like Dragonforce, whose self-termed "extreme" power metal provided the fundamental blueprint for their high-speed attack, Cellador was formed in the unlikely location of Omaha, NE, in the summer of 2004. It was there, less than a year into their existence, that the young group comprising Michael Gremio (vocals), Chris Petersen (lead and rhythm guitar), Bill Hudson (lead...
