third album with drummer Chrisafis Tantanozis as bandleader has a completely new
line-up. With new members hailing from Denmark, Greece and Hungary it is a
rather international line up. The musicians on their 2010 album 'Generation X'
are gone and replaced by ex Artillery and (ex Crystal Eyes!!!, could this be a
coincidence) vocalist Soren Adamsen, Kostas Sotos (guitar), Mate Nagy (guitar)
and Alex Chamalides on bass.
not familiar with the bands first two albums, but what they serve on this new
album is o.k. A mix of European power metal, bits of thrash and a few typical
progressive parts. Mr. Adamsen has a powerful voice and does his job well, but
sometimes he sings rather false. The guitar parts are quite impressive and the songs are all above average. There are
pure powermetal songs like "Ever Alone", more thrashy tracks like "The Skies
Bleeding" and "Resurrection Suicide" and those with a more progressive touch
like "Out of the Shadows". With "Rock N Growl" there is a real rock hymn on the
album and the Midnight Oil cover "Beds are Burning" is well executed, but
fact you could say that the music on this album sounds a lot like Mystic
Phrophecy and in my eyes there is nothing really wrong with that. The only thing
you could be negative about is that the band isn't original and the false singing
parts, but that doesn't
change the fact that the music sounds good.
