Brothers of Metal – Emblas Saga Review

I know this review has been repetitive in praising the vocal harmonies, melodies and overall epic feel and awesomeness of this album, but that is because words fail to do the music justice, at this point, and I’m pretty much at a loss on what to say, except that this album and band are just absolutely incredible!

Luca Sellitto – The Voice Within Review

as opposed to being a melodic prog album, The Voice Within largely consists of some straight-forward, but very technically impressive power metal, with tons of neoclassical shredding and nods to classical music, as well as occasional influences from other genres.

Human Fortress – Reign of Gold Review

Human Fortress has been going strong for these past six years, with their previous two albums being some of their best work ever, and while Reign of Gold hits a couple of speed bumps along the way, it largely follows suit, with an excellent mix of power metal, heavy metal and some symphonic and folk elements sprinkled throughout

Eleine – All Shall Burn EP Review

I’m not sure if Eliene will find this review to be a good one, but I hope they do and focus their future efforts on where their strong points are. All Shall Burn offers some potential for Eliene to become a standout band of the genre. With lush orchestrations and phenomenal vocals, there is certainly a hefty degree of talent.

Work of Art – Exhibits Review

I was very much anticipating the new Work of Art Exhibits. I’ve always enjoyed their distinct brand of AOR, despite being softer than some of their competitors. Probably the lesser-known band of the W.E.T super group conglomerate, they could easily move into a more obvious position with their latest offering. The new album is one that I have found myself listening to more than some of the other releases of 2019. It is fantastic.

Pretty Maids – Undress Your Madness Review

I’m still a little bummed about not getting to see them, but at least I got a brilliant collection of brand-new songs from Pretty Maids to ease my pain with Undress Your Madness. Of course. All well-wishes and thoughts to Ronnie during his fight with cancer. Here’s hoping he makes a full recovery and rebounds back better than ever. When a band that has consistently released music of this caliber, year after year, it is remarkable they’ve yet again raised the bar for fan expectations.
