An offspring of Blind Guardian and Symphony X, Of Doom and Death never spreads its reach further than
what said bands have already established. Power metal diehards won't mind this as much, but most listeners
will hope for more chances to be taken. For what the band offer us, however, the music is competent and
enjoyable, if more so when hearing the songs individually--listening to nine songs that are mostly carbon
copies of one another quickly grows tiring. Of Doom and Death gets a pass on the presumption that its
successor will be more progressive and adventurous.
