The reviews and reaction to this album so far has already taken this classy outfit to the next level.

Gaining distribution for most of Europe through the growing earMUSIC organisation can be seen as a huge step forward for Myrath, the quintet who started their career as Death Metal then as a Symphony X cover band in their native Tunisia. Over the course of their three previous albums, or four if you count their 2005 album under the name X-Tazy, Myrath have rapidly grown in style and substance to the point where their traditional Eastern influences and Western Progressive Metal side are blending perfectly to form something original and stunning, along similar lines to Israeli pioneers Orphaned Land.

Interestingly, Myrath means "legacy" in their native language so maybe this is seen as a self-titled album of sorts, but either way it has ten wonderful songs and a short dramatic intro, and uses strings and traditional instruments alongside the band's considerable instrumental skills and Zaher Zorgati's amazing vocals.

To this day they still claim SyX as their biggest influence, and in the speedy riffs of 'Get Your Freedom Back' it's undeniable, but in Zorgati's rich delivery and the soaring melodic chorus it seems closer to Roy Khan-era Kamelot and also has a Funky bass and drum breakdown for good measure. 'Believer' and 'Storm Of Lies' bookend the album with Eastern melodies over sumptuous Symphonic Metal, and the hugely atmospheric 'Nobody's Lives' also benefits from the sweeping orchestral instruments, whilst 'The Unburnt' still Rocks out despite its marmite melodies and instrumental twists. At the top of the pile, I would put the sparser 'Through Your Eyes' with its Jorn Lande-style vocals and mesmerising guitar solo from Malek Ben Arbia, or the quirkily arranged 'Dust', but the mellower semi-ballad 'I Want To Die' and the thundering 'The Needle' would be up there too.

Despite the many layers of sounds that go into 'Legacy', the production is clean and powerful and doesn't seem cluttered, which is emphasized by the stunning clarity during the lighter, sparser moments. A European tour with their US idols has already been completed to promote the album, and with many more headline shows planned in the coming year, it's onwards and upwards for Myrath. The reviews and reaction to this album so far has already taken this classy outfit to the next level.
