Many fans agree that classical music and Heavy Metal have a lot in common. In fact a lot of fans probably listen to both, or even play both. And why not? Classical music is often just as powerful and ‘larger than life’ as Heavy Metal is, so again, why not? And even if Heavy Metal and classical music had nothing in common then it would still be okay to listen to it. And yet this is a strange album though for different reasons that you might think. The strange reason is not the combination Heavy Metal & Classical Music, it is the way how both genres got mixed here. You get a classical song and a Metal song, both in two versions and that is a bit too much and also repetitive. It is neither really a classical album, nor a Metal album. And even if it was, why these repetitions?
Either version of the classical song would make a nice little extra for an actual Metal album, but this? Also, why provide yet another song in two versions? Yes, this time it is Metal, but still, it is the same song in two different versions. And yet I find it difficult to rate the album. The songs are not bad after all, but the album could be better. 6 surprisingly merciful devils for this effort.
Here is to hoping that the actual full length album will provide a better mix.
