Glasya – Heaven’s Demise (Pride & Joy Music)

Time to don your budgie-smugglers and wade out into the deep waters of Operatic Symphonic Metal with the debut offering from Portuguese band Glasya. This particular sea can get pretty choppy and rather crowded with big fish around, so although… Continue Reading →

Tonight is a power metal fans dream come true, Kamelot, a massive enterprise in the aforementioned sub-genre, are rolling into Manchester, and tonight is just one of three dates of the UK leg of their current tour, and with a… Continue Reading →

Kalidia – The Frozen Throne (Inner Wound )

Italy knows how to do Symphonic Power Metal. Since Rhapsody (Of Fire etc…) blazed a trail back in the mid 90’s it seemed to unleash a plethora of like-minded souls which has continued through to current times. There is generally… Continue Reading →

Melted Space – Darkening Light (Sensory)

Like Arjen Anthony Lucassen and Christofer Johnsson, French maestro Pierre Le Pape surrounds himself with a cast of many and goes down the symphonic rock opera route with various singers from both the sort of bands that you might well… Continue Reading →

Visions Of Atlantis – Old Routes, New Waters (Napalm)

Sometimes a little tricky to review, this is one of those stop-gap re-recordings EPs that Napalm and other companies are so keen on when a band get a new singer. Visions Of Atlantis are probably keen to do this too…because… Continue Reading →

Melted Space – The Great Lie (Sensory)

This album should have had me running to the hills screaming and trying to distance myself as far away from it as possible. Melted Space are a project that were originally formed by Pierre Le Pape of Wormfood and essentially… Continue Reading →

Jaded Star – Memories from the future (Sensory)

I have seen Visions of Atlantis numerous times, as well as enjoying their recorded output, and have always been impressed with the power of Maxi Nil’s vocal delivery. I was disappointed when I heard that she had parted company with… Continue Reading →
