pomp/power metal band unleash their debut album and the twist is
the female vocals which rather than take the operatic route of
many female metal singers goes down the melodic rock route.
The music is suitably grandiose (amazingly so given that only one
band members plays all the keyboards!) and the vocals are very
accessible and melodic. The only downside is that a couple of
tunes sound a bit too similar although they are still worth
listening too! Fans of Saga, A.C.T. (Felony have that quirkiness
of A.C.T. at times) and Voyager will lap this album up.
A very assured debut album by a band that with the right push
could become a power/pomp metal favourate for years to come.
