Arwen (Memories of a dream)

The sound of the band can be categorized as a very melodic Power Metal style with some progressive elements. In fact, if you like Angra (especially some of the softer side of the band) then you’ll probably like this band as well. They have a striking similarity to Angra’s style (especially the Fireworks album) but don’t really sound like a copy-cat band at all. They add their own unique touch and the result is a very enjoyable album. Musically, there’s lots of fast and speedy Power Metal riffing with lots of guitar/keyboard runs and fills giving the band a touch of a Neo-classical sound.

Before the dawn (My darkness)

Beginning with a slight intro piece the groove laid out in “Unbrakeable” just hooked me instantly. When the dirty growls of Toumas Saukkonen came in I was sold. The CD has many different things going on in its favor. They use both styles of singing mixing the clean with the dirty to some effect. Most of the instrumentation is programmed and under the direction of Saukkonen making this project pretty much under his command almost like Trent Reznor would do with his group Nine Inch Nails.

Tobias Sammet´s Avantasia (The metal opera)

There is something immediately compelling about Sammet having called his magnum opus The Metal Opera. It brings to mind a thousand expectations: an epic narrative, a cast of vocalists, a strong presence of classical music, and helpings of bombast to go around. The Metal Opera hits all of these marks and more, and while it wouldn’t be fair to call this an opera in the traditional sense, it is clear that Sammet has envisioned to be digested as a single monolith of art.

Ghost (Opus Eponymous)

Opus Eponymous is an extraordinary debut that slowly peels back surprise after surprise as you delve into its 35 minutes of music. Sure, the style is old-school, but it’s musically very rich, often more subtle than riff-oriented, and as closing instrumental “Genesis” proves, capable of moments of disarming beauty. Most effective, though, is the way the band gets their Satanic messages across by roping listeners in with accessible arrangements rather than cheap shock tactics.

Ghost (Meliora)

Unlike the previous two Ghost records, Meliora doesn’t take its time to kick in. After 30 seconds of a pulsating organ, distant choir, theremin and glockenspiel playing what sounds like the intro passage to a 1980’s horror flick, the band comes in full force with a headbanger of a riff and Papa Emeritus III’s familiarly eerie voice.

Nightwish (Angels fall first)

The CD opens up with Elvenpath, which is definitely the best song of the album. It’s still one of the live favorites whenever they decide to play it, it has many of the elements which makes Nightwish a successful formula today what’s with speedy solos, excellent vocals & a very catchy chorus. The only weird thing in this one is well… the lyrics, but also the fact that they have sampled clips from the animated Lord of the Rings movie. Surprised?

Amon Amarth (Twilight of the thunder god)

The playing on the album is insanely tight as always, and the production quality makes this album a masterpiece. The tones on everything are phenomenal. The drums sound massive, the guitars are tight and heavy as hell, and Johan’s vocals are even gritter and more brutal than before. I feel that this album also has some of their best songwriting, utilizing some basic song structures but with really well developed riffs and melodies that compliment each other beautifully. And of course no Amon Amarth album would be complete without some absolute bangers. This album is loaded with riffs from front to back that will make you start a mosh pit in a nursing home. This album is your new gym playlist. Your warcry. Your larping soundtrack. Any song that comes on and it makes you wanna rampage on your way to Vahalla. Unbelievably killer release.

Amon Amarth (With Oden on our side)

Amon Amarth released their sixth full-length album “With Oden On Our Side” on September 22nd 2006. Whoever had been disappointed with their preceding full-length album “Fate Of Norns” must certainly have got over that disappointment after listening to this album because the band has once again moved closer to their older style of songwriting and their sound in this album is similar to that of their old releases like “Once Sent From The Golden Hall”.

Amon Amarth (Versus the world)

Sweden, birthplace of so many excellent Death Metal bands, especially Melodic Death, once again displays a major combo with Amon Amarth. I have to say that I was totally oblivious to the sole existence of that band before having a chance to discover this album. But as if the band was aware of this, they generously included a bonus disc with “Versus The World”, which contains a best of their previous albums, and that album alone is praiseworthy. But let’s not diverge from our major topic now, namely “Versus The World”. The band has been around for quite some time now but this album is their huge breakthrough.
