It's hard to deny the comparison between Swedish melodic rockers Dynazty and H.E.A.T. They play in a similar style, have similar origins with record labels, and have built up their fanbase and followers during a similar timeframe. I haven't been that good in keeping up to date with Dynazty's activity, so I'm making up for lost time now. We're looking at their third album 'Sultans Of Sin', which came out in 2012. As with their prior two releases, there are some great moments here, one song was a co-write between the band and Chris Laney, another was written by Masquerade's Thomas G'Son alongside Thomas Johansson.

The Songs
I'm still in disbelief as to how good Swedish melodic rock is these days. Dynazty can turn it up or down, depending on requirements. In the 'up' category is the energetic opener 'Come Alive' or the vicious power of 'Love Junkie'. Ooh yeah! In 2012, the band appeared in the Eurovision contest with the entry 'Land Of Broken Dreams', this one written by the aforementioned G'Son and Johansson. It's very much in the style of H.E.A.T, a situation which sees these two bands tied at each others hips like Siamese twins! A point of difference is the exquisite ballad 'Back Again'. Simply beautiful stuff. But for the most part, it's songs like 'Raise Your Hands', 'Falling', the chant-a-long 'Bastards Of Rock N Roll' and the title track 'Sultans Of Sin' which typify Dynazty's overall sound.

In Summary
Dynazty would reappear in 2014 with 'Renatus', a much heavier affair, and one we'll be covering very soon, to complete the Dynazty discography and to bring everything up to date. If you are a H.E.A.T FAN, then you should complete the quinella and add this great Swedish band to your playlist.
