This is a case of perseverance paying off, as
the band worked hard year after year,
releasing a slew of demos between 1998
and 2004 but never getting the record deal
they wanted despite a growing fan base,
though they came close to signing with
came to the rescue, signing the band for their
debut album, Birth/The End
, released in 2007.
Their music is kind of a cross between the
classic Finnish goth rock/metal and a more traditional
power metal style.
The songs are straightfoward and accessible, with
vocalist Pasi Kärkkäinen rarely deviating from a strong,
husky midrange voice, and keyboards being a major
component of the overall sound.
This isn't groundbreaking, but it is solid, and for those
looking into accessible (dare one say catchy) goth-tinged
power metal should check these guys out.
