Human Reset is perhaps not a surprising album for longtime fans of Derdian, but it’s definitely one of the most epic and thoroughly entertaining power metal albums I’ve heard this year, with a nice mix of different elements throughout. The varied songwriting, tight musicianship, epic vocal melodies, and shorter track times help make it my favorite Derdian album to date, and certainly an album I’d instantly recommend to any fan of the more melodic side of the genre.
