It's almost a tradition that CUSTARD come around the corner with a new work every four to five years. Almost exactly four years have passed since ´A Realm Of Tales´ and the quintet from North Rhine-Westphalia arrives on time with their new round album ´Imperium Rapax´. In fact, his seventh studio album by now. Indestructible? It looks like this!

The band led by singer Olli Strasser meets the high demands of all classic metallers, just like the Powermetal faction. The songs are even more sophisticated, the production more powerful, the implementation more lively than on the celebrated previous albums. This time, the five gentlemen have tackled the topic of the Roman Empire. Battle hymns alternating with deeply emotional moments underline the complexity of the experienced warriors. A positive further development can be attested in every respect. Songs to bawl along in the ranks of the legionnaires adorn the latest work as well as the fragile silence after a lost battle. The dynamic in the songwriting leaves no eye dry and a touch of history wafts through the loudspeakers at home.

With this new collection of songs, CUSTARD will not only be interesting for fans of the Teutonic competition - fans of Blind Guardian, Grave Digger, Rage and the like can strike absolutely blind here - but it will also be of interest to supporters of the British guild, consisting of priests and iron maidens, plenty of material offered. Perfect? Maybe!
