Clad in a black leather jacket and boots, Tom lead his band on a rock n’ roll mission to provide enough blues inspired riffs and 80s hard rock for all fans to last until his next tour.
I’ve always been fascinated by bands that can mix so many styles of music into one common sound, and Voices of Destiny have managed to do this better than most. The hauntingly beautiful voice of Maike Holzmann draws you in then keyboardist Lukas Palme responds with demonic growls not unlike that of Cannibal Corpse on top of driving songs interspersed with whiplash inducing thrash riffs. And that’s just within the opening track “Power Dive.”
Triosphere sure is a band that likes to take their time releasing albums, but with The Heart of the Matter, the wait was certainly worth it, as every song is developed to its full potential, and everything sounds excellent. It maintains the more polished and mature sound of The Road Less Travelled, while at times bringing back the rawer, more aggressive sound of Onwards. It’s their most dynamic and most progressive album to date, while also possibly being their most accessible due to their ever improving vocals and melodies. A must hear for any fans of progressive power metal.
