a passion for more symphonic an epic hard rock/metal Markus felt that
now was the time to release some of the songs he had written during 2003
and 2004. Daniel Flores (Drums), Thomas Vikström (Vocals) and Andreas
Olsson (Bass) joined and the line up was complete.
Rivel (Narnia, Divinefire) offered them a deal on his label Rivel
Records and in august their debut album called “The Weight of the
World” will see the light of day. Their debut album was produced by
Markus Sigfridsson and mixed by Markus Sigfridsson and Göran Werner and
mastered by PLEC at Criteria mastering.
music on “The Weight of the World” is catchy and the guitars are
heavy as hell. There is a symphonic and epic feeling in every track and
the choruses are memorable without being sappy. I like the way the mix
crunchy and heavy guitar riffs with the symphonic and epic edge…and
the musicians are flashy, technical and impressive without going over
was a little disappointed with this album at first, but after numerous
listens I like it a lot. It just needed 3 or 4 spins in my CD-player
before it opened up to me. There are a few guests on this debut album;
Caroline Sigfridsson (Vocals) on the song “Fall Again”, and Kasper
Dahlqvist (known for his work in Dionysus,
and Stormwind) who plays all keyboard solos on the album.
On “The Weight of the World” you will also find a
heavy version of Swedish melodic doomers Veni Domine song “Wisdom
Calls”. So, if you are into heavy melodic metal with a symphonic and
epic edge, maybe you should do your self a favour and check this album
out when it hit the stores?
