New album by the Italian Power Metal sextet.

Elvenking are established now, having been around for 15 years and released 6 albums. This Italian Power Metal sextet have been beavering away, without really making waves. Which is surprising as they sound pretty special. Perhaps it's because they don't hug the genre, perhaps it's because they have elements of Power and Symphonic but make them work to produce a shining Metal album.

Yes they, as Steve Harris does, have a gallop now and again. Yes, they have a Celtic air or two. Yes, they sometimes seem unwittingly folky. But you'll get value added too. You'll get an attacking Gothic piano line but warm as toast Classic Rock chorus stabbed by a violin bow and embellished by a Bluesy solo. And that's just in ‘I Am The Monster’. If you want a duel between AOR and NWOBHM whilst synths tinkle coquettishly in the crowd and the vocal line soars like the very Melodic Rock eagle, ‘Midnight Skies, Winter Sighs’ is the song for you. Don't worry though ‘Walking Dead’ will drag you back to the Power you want, the Symphony you crave.

Nino Laurene has produced a mix of shiny succulence and Jon Oliva even turns up to lend his tonsils to two tracks. Not that Elvenking need help. In an age when people are cuddling together to escape the terror of austerity, when people are saying how great the 70's were, the familiar is king. This doesn't sound expected or relied upon. This sounds like a band that have the grapefruits to seek their own path, to add surprises, to even make us blink in shock.

This is the sound of music. Let's hope it's what the people want.

Steve Swift
