Hymn is a Power Metal band from Japan, and
they have released three demos - the
first one is called “Through the Wilderness”, and it was released in
the beginning of 2004 and contains four tracks. The
other two demos was also released in 2004, the “Wings of
Time” demo contains three tracks and “The Call From the Unknown”
only contains two.
title track on “Wings of Time” is a speedy affair somewhere between
Rhapsody and Sonata Arctica, second track “Firestorm” is a
straightforward mid-tempo Heavy Metal
song, last song “A Drop of the Ocean” is again finest Melodic Speed
even sounds like Nightwish at times, because of the great vocals from
“The Call From the Unknown” both songs are held in mid-tempo, and
there are more Neo-Classical influences than on “Wings of Time”, I
have to say that I personally like the “Wings of Time” demo more
than this one.
Hymn are currently recording their debut album, if they will follow the
path from the “Wings of Time” demo they will surely deliver a great
Power Metal album.
“Wings of Time” 80/100
