MARCH IN ARMS-Pulse Of The Daring

Review english

Furious Power Metal

of the American troop MARCH IN ARMS (Facebook ). As the band’s name suggests, the Americans deal with the subject of war. And if you look at the history of mankind in this way, you could unfortunately release countless albums on this topic. In this context the troopers are raging in the area of power metal and is not afraid to break through into the thrashy or rocky areas.


are fighting the musical battle with 5 fellow combatants. For this album they have enlisted the support of specialists. So we are already at a special feature in the sound of MARCH IN ARMS. Besides the backing vocals there are two strings in the program, which refine the sound with cello and violin, but only for two songs.

„Welcome To The Blitz“ is the first single release, however, is first of all in the rocky melodic line. The Blitzkrieg during the Second World War is treated thematically to pay tribute to the heroic rebellion of the English in London. The song itself is simply structured with a powerful chorus. His rather loose rocky riffs are in the foreground. This really conveys DEF LEPPARD feeling from the 80ies & 90ies. Very nice and catchy rocksong!

The strengths

Take the opener „1914“, for example, which is a direct hit and is more metal oriented. The tempo is really going forward and the melodic vocal lines are just awesome, but also put enough power into the song in between. And it’s exactly this driving song that I least expected the strings. But there they are suddenly and I don’t find them out of place, but consider them a great component as a bridge for the following powerful vocal part. Official guitar solos are still on top. That’s how heroic feeling comes up. Real burner!


as the title song is also a highlight of the album. The song stomps powerfully forward and also sets a faster marching tempo. „Thunderbolt“ however breaks the sound barrier and advances at high speed. Afterwards „Omaha“ fires variedly through the ears, who is fighting also in the top league of the album. Hearing the song I thought from minute 02:30 on that James Hetfield made a vocal guest appearance after a bath in the fountain of youth. Fascinating!

The power ballad „Not For Nothing“ forms the perfect conclusion of the album and there the listeners can enjoy the strings again.


MARCH IN ARMS deliver a great package and some songs are absolute grenades and they blow everything away. There are no absolute misfires, but I would have wished for a little more variety and specials (like the strings in „1914“ and „Not For Nothing“)The voice of Ryan Knutson is great and takes the songs to a higher level. And there is nothing to complain about from a purely technical point of view. The mates master their musical weapons perfectly. All in all a very well made album, which is a clear improvement. And MARCH IN ARMS can build on that.

Seit meiner Kindheit höre ich gerne Rockmusik. Es hat mit Gary Moore, Scorpions, Billy Idol, Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, AC/DC usw. angefangen, also quasi mit den Großen der 80'er und 90'er Jahre. Mit zunehmendem Alter ging der Musikgeschmack immer mehr auch in die härtere Richtung. So finden sich mittlerweile auch viele Core-Platten, so wie Black-und Death-Metal Kracher in meiner Sammlung. Daher bin ich in fast allen Bereichen des Rock und Metal unterwegs. Eine besondere Vorliebe habe ich für den Underground entwickelt, wo es richtig brennt und es viele hochklassige Bands gibt, die den Großen der Branche in nichts nachstehen, ganz im Gegenteil. In diesen Sinne: Stay tough, stay heavy!
