Palace Terrace
Flying Through Infinity
Style: Neo-Classical Metal
Release date: November 16th 2007

When I think of Neo-classical metal I think of pioneers like Yngwie Malmsteen and Symphony X, two genre icons that paved the way for many bands and have helped establish the genre and sound like we know it today. The genre itself is best known for it's theatrical expressions, the grandiose orchestration with many references to classical music, a great feel for big harmonies, at least one brilliant guitarist, great vocal arrangements and so on...

Palace Terrace has it all, and has produced a well written, well executed and well produced album, but they bring absolutely nothing new to the genre. Did we really expect that from a debut album by a practical unknown band? No, not really - and the album is a firm statement from this up and coming band that surely has a place within the boundaries of neo-classical metal.

Don't expect something out of this world - expect a solid piece of metal with all the ingredients that make a good neo-classical album.
