Hard-Hitting Dragon Iconography

Getting my first real tastes of Keep of Kalessin's new release, Reptilian, and three-quarters of the way through the first song I'm already twice as excited as I was after hearing "The Dragontower" a few months ago. If "The Dragontower" was prog mixed with NWOBHM, "Dragon Iconography" is power metal mixed with the kind of brain-crushing heaviness that made me buy The Discipline of Fire & Demise after hearing thirty seconds of "Thorns on My Grave." If you've been on the fence about giving Keep of Kalessin a try in the past, this seems like it might be the album to start listening.
