This is my first Elis album. Quite honestly this is one of the more refreshing metal albums I’ve picked up recently. Last purchases being Epica’s Design Your Universe, Krypteria’s Liberatio and In In Medias Res, as well as Avantasia’s The Scarecrow.
This album features some pretty darn amazing vocals and some of the most interesting song craft I’ve heard in some time. I’m reminded strongly of Sirenia’s more recent albums with solid vocals, and some heavy and creative guitar work.
More of a metal romp than the symphonic heavy Epica genre so if you’re after more full symphony metal this isn’t your strongest candidate. All in all a great album to pick up for the collection.
