A leading light in symphonic metal returns, with their new album Hunter’s Moon. It is a combination of a live album, live blu ray alongside four new tracks which showcase some of the material fans can expect on the forthcoming studio album.
“Masters of Destiny,” comes in with a barrel, a fully throated harmony and some interesting melodies and guitar rhythms, laying the ground for the rest of the album. “Hunter’s Moon,” soars and weaves a tale around the ground, taking with one hand and giving with the other. “The Silence Is Mine,” is a piano whirlwind, moving this way and that, arpeggios come in strong supply here, and they dance with the thunderous riffs of the guitar. “Art Kills.” a pounding symphonic masterpiece, locked in with pleasure and suaveness. “Hands of Gold,” a rip roaring shredding masterpiece, with the live element coming right in. “Danse Macabre,” takes the road less travelled and adds in some seriously killer melodies. “Scarlet,” dances on the waves, whilst the audience is left captivated.
“Your Body Is A Battleground,” carries an edge and adds some seriously gnarly riffs into the fore, to make this one hell of a performance. “Nothing Left,” a dancing around with the prancing melodies and chaotic rhythms to ensure that the audience is left completely hooked. “Control The Storm,” is a bounding masterpiece, taking charge and leaving the audience desperate for more. “Sing To Me,” is a gallivanting, masterpiece, something that really takes the horns. “Not Enough,” bounds with frenetic energy but also keeps things simple with some lovely little hooks and swings. “Scandal,” a pounding thumping little shredding number, that keeps the chaos going, a fitting tribute to the legends that are Queen. “The Gathering,” finishes things off, with some masterfully executed harmonies, and a departure from the norm.
The album is out on 22nd February via Napalm Records.
