Symphonic concept story delivered via an epic metal presentation
Comments:
Sophomore album from former Amberian Dawn vocalist Heidi Parviainen. This continues the story penned on the 2015 debut 'Behind the Black Veil'. The record is a good variety of faster metal numbers that incorporate operatic vocals, rich symphonies and a darkly woven tale about split personality. Overall, a good variance spread through ten tracks. Features guest appearances by Manuela Kraller (Xandria), Charlotte Wessels (Delain) and JP Leppäluoto (Charon).
Recommended for fans of:
Amberian Dawn, Delain, Midnight Eternal
