Sometimes a band will make an album that’s so game-changing, it can earn the band a ton of new fans who would have otherwise not been interested in their music. For me, one such album is Renatus, the fourth full-length album from Swedish melodic metal band Dynazty.
Amanda Somerville. She has shown through various outlets that she can hold court vocally within a multitude of subgenres, and stand toe to toe with any man who dares. Her latest project, Trillium, is clearly a more melodic metal vehicle for her stunning talent, and it works perfectly.
Even with a new lineup, the overall sound is still very much what Temperance fans would expect, which is to say the band plays a very modern sounding brand of melodic metal.
To be releasing album number 17 shows you know exactly what you are doing and you know who your fan base is.
One thing that’s definitely a selling point for me is vocalist Fabio Lione, who has to be the most prolific power metal vocalist in the world at this point.
While the two singers are clearly the main focus of the album, as one would expect, guitarist Simone Mularoni has managed to produce some great tracks here…
New listeners can expect a very melodic brand of power metal, built on excellent vocal melodies, huge choruses, tons of keyboards and occasional symphonic element.
Phoenix is a solid album, maybe slightly behind The 8th Sin, but it definitely doesn’t come close to the band’s best works
“Magic” is an album that comes with good melodic metal songs, taking the listener to a world of fantasy and imagination.
