Frederik Norstrom is the knob twiddler behind some of the most brutal metal to come out of Sweden, so when this uber producer trades in his headphones for a guitar, what should we expect? Well, if you guessed blistering power metal akin to Manowar, Helloween, and Hammerfall, then you get the gold star, as Dream Evil's sophomore effort (its second in less than two year's time!) screams for vengeance. Containing 12 fist-full metal tracks, EVILIZED will scorch your ears and re-ignite the metal flame that has since been flickering in your heart. Anthemic, majestic and a bit on the clichéd side, any fan of blatantly honest to goodness heavy metal should lap this one up right quick.
