Under The Grey Banner (2011). Astronomy is the fourth studio album by Swedish power metal band Dragonland, released in Europe on 13 November 2006 and in North America on 28 November 2006. While their third album Starfall focused heavily on keyboards and had a more upbeat lyrical tone, according to guitarist Olof Mörck, Astronomy is "gloomier, more stygian and packed with crunching guitars; both furiously fast and bone-grindingly heavy.

Under the Grey Banner. Album (Studio full-length).

Dragonland is a power metal band from Sweden. The group is most notable for basing their first two and the fifth album upon the self-produced The Dragonland Chronicles fantasy saga and for the original parts by Elias Holmlid. The band was founded in autumn 1999 by guitarist Nicklas Magnusson and Jonas Heidgert. Soon after Daniel Kvist, Magnus Olin and Christer Pederson joined in. Their first demo was recorded in January 2000.

So with that said, Under the Grey Banner is the most consistent album that the three story-based albums have to offer. Whether or not people will enjoy this album as much as the fans do, it is likely that it won’t be the case. But until the next album that Dragonland releases, we can surely enjoy the three story-based albums for now and the other two records prior to this one. Fans of power metal will certainly enjoy this, and the fans of the band will really enjoy this. It’s just the way it works.

Under The Grey Banner" is the third part of "The Dragonland Chronicles" saga. The album resets the bar for fantasy Power Metal to an almost unattainable height. From the bombastic intro of "Ilmarion" to the rich melodies of "Ivory Shores", the band puts the genre back on the map with an orgasmic display of Power, Speed, majesty and melody. It is further proof that Fantasy Power is stronger than ever, rather than the stagnant form of Metal it has become lately, especially in light of the rise and dominance of Symphonic Extreme Metal in recent years. 'A hundred years had passed. Ilmarion spoke proudly of honour and sacrifice to mounted knights, Duviel the Elven Queen gathered the elven archers to her in great lines and Grimmdane Skullcleaver, the foremost warrior and general of the dwarven race commanded more than twenty perfectly squared cohorts of armoured.
