Every album that America's Bombworks has distributed over the last couple of years has, whilst not always being to my own personal taste, been a tour-de-force in their respective sub-genre. That is until now. Sadly, this just doesn't seem to have that punch. This set from a Brazilian power metal band doesn't have one standout track, nor does it redeem itself as a whole album. It's just track after track of power metal that seems to lack any spark. The musicianship is pretty good but somehow doesn't carry any vitality while the vocals just sound like a poor man's Kai Hansen or Lance King. 'Life War' is not dreadful, it's just not going to turn any heads. The band are the third from Brazil to end up on Bombworks and whilst they may be in the same ball-park as Seven Angels, they have a long way to go before they match label mates Amos. In other words, there really is nothing about this band that makes them stand out, it's just bog-standard power metal. There may be potential here, but as yet no results. They'll do well to keep hold of their obviously talented lead guitarist.
