Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos WizardsMetal tends to be so serious sometimes, and as such can be a great parody target.  Granted, some are not amused by such things, but with the right sense of humor, parodies can be entertaining, like Spinal Tap.  Gloryhammer returns with their second album of very over –the-top epic symphonic power metal, Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards to fill that parody metal void.

Formed by Christopher Bowes of Alestorm, Gloryhammer released their first album Tales from the Kingdom of Fife on Napalm Records in 2013.  Finding real factual information on the band is not the easiest task as even their “official” bio is filled with all sorts of epic siliness as one can see with the description of the band members and what instruments they play.  The general theme for the album is that there is an evil plan afoot to release an evil sorcerer, Zargothrax, from his icy prison which will imperil the Galactic Empire of Fife.  Production and mixing are spot-on perfection as one would expect for a symphonic power metal album.  Expect lots of keyboards, guitar solos, soaring vocals and choruses and a bass and drum rhythm line that provides some great drive to the songs.
