Henk : 'Dinosaur Warfare' is for me a first acquaintance with the German happy metal band Victorius. On this EP, the band tells the story of dinosaurs who prevent an alien invasion by transforming themselves into ultra modern fighting machines. This complete with lasers and other weapons. Actually quite original and packed in power metal with lots of melody. So far the good news. The bad news is that the sound of the EP is not sparkling. It is all a bit slick and very neat if you ask me. One hears the drummer somewhere in the background playing his fast parts. The bass player is also hidden in the mix and the songs sound very similar to each other. With a smashing production and mix this would have been a good album. Now no more than mediocre. Unfortunately.
