virtuoso Mistheria has written a cool collection of neo-classical metal
songs that has very strong links to three of front-runners in the genre: Yngwie
Malmsteen, Artension and Royal Hunt. And to underline it further he has brought
in some vocalists with strong links to the same bands: John West and Mark Boals.
Other guest vocalists sharing their pipes on "Dragon Fire" are: Rob Rock, Lance
King and Titta Tani.
If I didn't
know better I might easily come to the conclusion that some of the songs were
written by Andre Andersen, Yngwie Malmsteen or Vitalij Kuprij! Yes, it is that
close and the similarities are at times very obvious,
and the fact is that within the confines of neo-classical metal it is often the case that
things sound much alike.
This is not
for you if you insists that your music should be original, but if you want fast
power metal combined with classical parts, high speed guitar runs, blistering
keyboard runs, great keyboard and guitar duels and leads, some very convincing
vocal performances, all wrapped in a good production then I suggest you give
this one a listen...
