Phoenix Rising offers a good blend of traditional heavy and power metal with some obvious prog nuances. Fortress Under Siege is also strong on melody and putting some solid rock groove into many songs. Notably it underlies the chorus or vocal arrangement as within the Final Attempt or the title cut. Mostly, being founded by two guitarists, most of the arrangements are large on riffs and big solos. Eagles Fly Forever, a true heavy metal number, is a good example of song built almost entirely on these two characteristics.
