Another band from Canada which plays melodic, call it symphonic power metal. The quality of this album is higher than the band Icewind I reviewed yesterday. For the biggest part that is because of the vocals. Alexis Woodbury is a decent singer and that is one of the most important things a metal band in this genre needs.
Musically there is nothing new about this album, but what they serve is really nice to listen to. Don't expect really heavy power metal, no the bands you can compare them with are Freedom Call, Secret Sphere, Edguy and Power Quest. Happy happy metal is what you have to be a fan of. Happier than Helloween and even happier than Freedom Call. European power metal influences and not the American ones like Iced Earth. Lots of choir singing, catchy choruses, keyboard and orchestral parts.
Original no, but this is music that makes you happy when you are feeling down. Not the best in the genre, but still nice to listen to.
