Reverence is also often listed as a supergroup, as ex-members of bands such as Savatage and Crimson Glory frolic. The Americans play power metal of mostly American style, so that the guitars are allowed to have WUMMS.

I have not had the pleasure of the band so far, so this live album is a good best-of-entry (new studio material should be in the works by 2019). Despite the members' musical past, I find that the combo has strong similarities to Primal Fear. Similar to these, I would count Reverence to the eternal premium league of the reserve, because you hardly bring about relevant own songs. Only "Revolution Rising" really sounds essential.

It rocks, blasts and roars everything on a high level (in this case also in a top live sound - but at least after the Savatage cover "Power Of The Night" it is clear that in comparison to the old masters after a lot of air up is.
