Stories of Times Forgotten is the debut EP from Sweden’s Krilloan and the title plus the artwork, band name font, etc. should make it no surprise this is fantasy-based power metal. Song titles like "Yggdrasil," "Fireborn" and "Moonblade" put the finishing touches on that assumption. It’s a well-played affair with a clear sound and lots of speed. I’d say it is in the middle of the power metal pool, not as symphonic as Rhapsody nor as crunchy as Helloween. The songwriting is fine with the requisite catchy choruses and flashy guitar work and is quite entertaining in spots, but at the end of the day Stories of Times Forgotten doesn’t do anything that hasn’t been done a multitude of times before. I think most fans of Euro power metal will like it well enough while it is on, but may not remember much afterward. - Metal Crypt

Krilloan started out in 2020 as a solo project by Klas Holmgren. The vision was to write songs in the same spirit as the melodic power metal-, and heavy metal bands of the late nineties-early 2000: s. High speed, soaring guitar solos, thundering drums and no keyboard solos! Based around composer and guitarist, Klas Holmgren from Sweden, Krilloan quickly grew into something larger than it was meant to be. One year later, the project now features members from all over the world with Klas and long-time friend Steve Brockmann as the core.  The project revolves around classic metal themes with fantasy lyrics and the debut EP, Stories Of Times Forgotten was released on May 21. In late 2020 Krilloan joined forces with Stormwarrior main man Lars Ramcke and Piet Sielck of Iron Savior who agreed to mix and master the album, Krilloan managed to get the sound they were looking for. When Felipe Machado Franco agreed to paint the cover art, they had all the pieces of the puzzle to bring the vision to life. The single “Fireborn” was released a month earlier and has been played on metal radio stations all over the world. The EP has been well received and there have been positive reviews from the international metal press. Locally in Sweden, Krilloan has done several interviews and there has been a lot of press coverage.
