Today Xandria's new album is released in Spain, Sweden, and Finland. The rest of Europe follows tomorrow and North America gets it's hands on it March 6. But, thanks to my review gig over at Black Wind Metal, I got a review copy! And let me tell you, this is one awesome fucking album. I was so impressed, and I think fans of the symphonic power metal genre are really going to be impressed, too. My review for Neverworld's End can be read here.
Also for Black Wind Metal, I reviewed the new Diabulus in Musica album, The Wanderer. I was only so-so on that. That review is here.
Finally for BWM, I reviewed Meden Agan, who hail from Greece. This is a band I encourage you all to pay some attention to, because they are absolutely brilliant. Their newest album, Erevos Aenaon, is so impressive, and I think Iliana, their operatic vocalist, is going to become a powerhouse on the scene. That review is here.
More reviews coming up!
