Golden legacy of the romantic 80s

I think this album is the best in the discography of this legendary group. I can hardly name it Speed-Power. In my opinion they play all the hard Hard'n'Heavy stuff.
And so much about the album. Compared to "Under Jolly Roger", the 1988 album is profitable. You ask what is it? Willingly you will answer this.
I'll start the analysis with my favorite rhythm section, before the recording of the album it completely changed. The new people not only strengthened the sound, they brought it closer to the ideal, they brought it to the heights, which at that time could be conquered except that "Iron Maiden". The drummer's games are beyond praise. Each note is audibly heard, separately about the twin barrels, so elegantly and at the same time it is aggressive and powerful in the "Running" for the installation, neither who else has played (Jorg is also not bad as a drummer, but he is closer to the technique Slaughtering), asphalt to the place, in general aerobatics.
Bassman! It's just a "song," you listen and you still want to! "Final Gates" is a classic of the whole direction! Again, associations with "Iron Maiden" and with the unforgettable Steve Harris!
Now to the double guitars. Again, on this release, we have the good fortune to hear the duo of Rolf & Majk, the "Running Wild" story. The solos are thought out and virtuosic, the speed is solid, they change as if they've been playing together for the rest of their lives!
Now about the music itself. In my opinion this was exactly the moment when Rolf and his comrades were at the creative peak. All the compositions are marked with a seal of inspiration, they listen in one breath, as if a musically stated monolith appeared before us! Plus it also consists in the fact that We hear really a team of like-minded people (the songs were composed and brought to the standard, the musicians together). Separately I will say about the vocals of Rolfa.Spel is clean and high, which I did not do before. The voice sounds like a stretched string, it does not dare but rattles! "Port Royal "
Separately, I want to note the work of the sound engineer. The instruments sound crystal-clear, but some people think that it would be possible to add loudness to the supporting guitar, riffs are not heard, but I think it's a matter of taste!
"Port Royal" is the golden legacy of the romantic 80's. Buy and listen to the classics of the German Metal scene, you will not regret. I give the hand to the cut!
