Well, so much for a good title. Seriously "To the Metal" is about the gayest title ever, not to mention it really doesn't make that much sense. If they're trying to make a Manowar album, this was the title to go for. Not to mention the song itself seems totally bland based on the live videos I've seen.
That being said, all the other stuff seems like good news. I sense this will be a relatively experimental album (by Gamma Ray standards, that is), with varied song styles and not so many borrowed riffs and song structures, as opposed to the last record. The band have never made an album with Kai on vocals that I'd give less than an 85% to, so this essentially is good news.
