Custard? WTF? There is a band named Custard?

Yep.  Kelz made for me a compilation tape around 1997 that had some cool stuffs on it like Custard, Tension, custSkullview(!) and some other stuff that escapes me right now.   I listened to that tape all the friggin’ time until I got a car in 2000 that didn’t have a cassette player.  So I saw that Sentinel Steel Records had Kingdoms of Your Life on CD and picked it up promptly.  He always has cool stuff and I recommend you checking it out if you’re even mildly into Power Metal.

Custard hails from Germany and are apparently still together but I am pretty suer that this CD is out of print, that’s why I am posting it here.  Fading Memories is the only song I can’t get into.  This is good straight up power metal.  The singer’s range isn’t that great but it’s very listenable.  Failed Mission is easily my favorite.  They have little bit of Maiden, Helloween, Accept etc in their sound.

I never bothered to check out their other albums, likely out of fear of disappointment.

On a scale of 1-5, this gets an easy 3.75.

Enjoy it!

  1. yah, i think that i prolly put ‘failed mission’ on that comp for you (a comp tape – how quaint), as that is my fave tune of the album as well…i heard some of ‘god of storm’ someplace, it was ok but i did not pick up anything else by them either, prolly for the same reason you mention…
