this album is a slight departure from Hellmade, as I remember that album mostly being classic heavy metal, with a slightly modern twist, as well as the occasional power metal influences, where Decadence Deluxe is an evener balance between heavy metal and modern power metal
While I’ve seen Millennial Reign described as a US power metal band, that isn’t entirely the case, as their music definitely includes some elements one wouldn’t expect from that genre.
Whether it’s bringing on a musical guest, watching founding member Thomas Youngblood on guitar, or enjoying and accepting Tommy Karevik on vocals, they always keep us entertained.
It happens from time to time. I’d wager those that have loved him all along will still dig this one, and those that maybe felt the same as myself might want to give this one a shot.
One of the better bands to emerge from this side of the genre in recent years is Circle of Silence.

I was excited about The Deep & the Dark when I saw who the two singers were, but I would never have expected it to turn out as well as it did!.
Stylistically, not much has changed on this album, as the band still plays an aggressive, guitar-driven brand of power metal, with a ton of classical melodies thrown in…
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…
