I have heard of Saffire before. Heard of, not heard. The reason I haven’t bothered with this lot before is that I was convinced they were a power metal band. From Germany. Why? Well, the name Saffire screams power metal. From Germany. At least to these ears. The thing is, I can’t stand power metal, especially German power metal. So, I never bothered. But then I got a link to review this record – and as I have noticed that there have been quite a buzz over this release on social media, at least where I hang – I decided to at least give the record a chance. Turns out that Saffire don’t play power metal at all. And they’re definitely not German.
