Infinita Symphonia is a progressive power metal band from Italy. They started in 2008 and if I'm not mistaken this is their second full length.

The first track immediately awakes me, especially because of the crunchy guitar riffs. Luca Micioni is a good singer and rather often he reminds me of James LaBrie and even Bruce Dickinson. The second track is a softer track, in which Luca shows what he is capable of. "Welcome to My World" is a rather technical track with tempo changes, melodic pieces, but also a short harsh singing piece. One of my favorite tracks is "Drowsiness", a song with a nice drive and a heavy part with harsh vocals. Sometimes the heavier guitar work makes me think of Iced Earth and also the guitar soli are excellent.  "In Your Eyes" starts with acoustic guitars and Luca's voice and turns out into a fine emotional ballad.  Influences of symphonic progressive metal, hard rock and power metal is what this band serves.

To make their music even more interesting they asked Michael Kiske to take the lead on "Fly" and that works. Sure the band Helloween will enter ones mind listening to that track. After an interlude, another ballad supported only by acoustic guitars follows. "X IV" is again a short instrumental, which is the intro for the last song. Fortunately the last track is heavier again, otherwise the album would have become a little too mellow.

After listening to the entire album I have to conclude that the first part is the best, after "Fly" it slips away, just a little bit.
