Fighting Warriors - Dextera Dei: The Tale of Iabus Review
by Zane Ewton

Power metal is a curious subgenre that regularly crosses the line into overblown, mock-operatic, dungeons and dragon's mysticism that is out of touch with what a casual metal fan might be looking for. The highlights of power metal can be incredible technical ability on instruments, powerful vocalists and even compelling imagery. Those highlights walk a fine line with what is most embarrassing about power metal.

Fighting Warriors and their record Dextera Dei: the Tale of Iabus fall into the familiar trappings of a medieval heavy metal band. The story to the 4 song EP is almost nonexistent, the music seems to have been made with a cut and paste method of fitting every cliché into a song. However, if they are trying to land their songs into the next Castlevania video game, they will be high on the list.

The tracks, "Pain of the Soul", "Dexteri Dei", "Stop the Crying" and "Out of My Hell" each sounds the same. The addition of a female vocalist is a novel idea but her vocals fall flat with the lame lyrics. The whole package here is just embarrassing and not even good for a laugh.
