The band here comes from Poland is the brainchild of Boguslaw Balcerak, a talented guitarist and this is their first release on Lion Music. The band is playing Neoclassical Metal, with all the trademarks of the genre, and are doing it with quite a style. The first concern for such a release, is that if the guitarist can implement some feeling and melodies along with the guitar shredding, thus making songs not only perfectly performed but also catchy and interesting for the listener. Such a question doesn't exist here, since all the things of this album are carefully chosen for the best result. First we have to say that Boguslaw can play, and can play good. Inspired by Malmsteen obviously, but also from Classic music, he tries to create a personal sound, adding all those influences into his own style. The material of this album was recorded from 2008 to 2009, and the vocals were done by Mark Boals, Goran Edman and Carsten Schulz adding to the whole quality. So, along with the excellent guitar works and melodies expect top class vocals, memorable parts to sing along, and a touch of Epic atmosphere. The vocals are balancing the domination of the guitars, something that is very good, and make the music a bit more interesting. The mastering was done by no else than Andy LaRocque, to assure that top quality has also achieved in this section as well. If you are a fan of this style, then check them out.
