The Forest Kingdom (Part 1) E.P.

     
         
         
         
     
             
Hundred are a heavy metal band from the UK formed in 2006 who released their demo E.P. in 2011. The follow up E.P. 'The Forest Kingdom (Part 1) was released in 2014.    
             
The bands' demo E.P. ended with a Viking metal sounding song and that is exactly how the opening song here sounds too. 'Twilight In The Forest Kingdom' is majestic as it strolls through some awesome riffs and melodies. There are plenty of musical passages in the song which gives the band room to show their musicianship to the full with blazing guitars, pounding drums and "story telling" type vocals. Chugging guitars grace 'The Forest King Marches' as it moves along at a mid tempo pace with a very traditional British metal feel to it.    
             
'Forest Sorcery' is another Viking metal sounding epic of heavy guitars, loud drums and a romping rhythm. 'The Fortress Awaits' is a superb slab of European sounding power metal, not too dissimilar to early eighties Helloween. Top speed guitar work and thunderous drumming spliced with screaming guitar solos and vocals that are almost spat make this will have you head banging furiously. 'Over The Plains' ends the E.P. at mid tempo pace, with some great melodic hard rock moments thrown in.    
             
Overall, an exciting mix of power metal, Viking metal and traditional British heavy metal to make this E.P. a must for the die hard metalhead.
