Young Guitar Review (EN)

Check out the Japanese magazine YOUNG GUITAR review, translated in English!


This is the début album of a Greek melodic Metal band formed in 1992. The band is a sextet, including twin-guitars and keyboards. They play European Dramatic Metal music. It is very interesting that the singer’s “straight” voice, which is rare in the Metal world, helps that they spread deeply “raw preciseness” in common with German non-flamboyant Progressive Metal bands like Ivanhoe and Vanden Plas. In their expression, drama, with varying the tempo or speed at will, especially their ability of expression in mellow parts is excellent. This is one acquisition that even without gorgeousness, the more and longer you listen to, the more flavoursome it gradually becomes. Please don’t be deceived by the jacket!
