Evil Masquerade  

Denmark has produced more than its fair share of quality metal bands, and here we have another in Evil Masquerade. At its core, this is a prototypical European metal band, not quite power metal, not quite neoclassical, and not quite symphonic, though there's a little bit of all three styles here. The album reviewed here is number two, Theatrical Madness, and it's a fitting title, as there's a fair bit of Queen-ish histrionics and general adventurous mixed in -- kudos to the band to at least write songs that stand out on their own. The lineup has changed several times over the course of twelve-odd years and five albums, with several ties to other well-known Scandinavian bands.
