Æternal Requiem – RISE

In terms of genre and composition, this album does exactly what it says on the tin, there are power and folk elements, as well as some more traditional heavy metal elements in there too. I just feel like this would benefit a little more from some good mastering and increase in the audio quality.

Eluveitie – Ategnatos

The composition and quality of the tracks are fantastic, it is difficult to fault the individual tracks. There can be a danger that there can be too many songs, just to put out as much material as possible to “make up” for the time between albums. Sadly I feel that Eluveitie might have fallen foul a little of this, but that does not diminish from the quality of the individual tracks themselves.

Sorcières – Sombres Danses

Sorcières are able to create an atmosphere with their music already, and the ability to keep one repeating melody throughout a track is not something that you see very often nowadays, and I really enjoy it. I look forward to hearing what more Sorcières are able to bring to life in the future.

Aonia – The Seven

The composition is wonderful, Jo and Melissa’s vocals are absolutely flawless and incredible to listen to, and live they put on a magnificent performance. I will definitely be taking another opportunity to see them live in the future, and I would suggest that if symphonic metal is your kind of thing, that you should do the same.

Cadence Noir – Physical Copy

This album is maybe something I wouldn’t have immediately picked up from the cover and album title, but I did really enjoy the tracks. It’s a little bit out of my normal taste, but I had a lot of fun listening to it, and it brought back memories of some of the music I used to listen to in the late 90’s and early 00’s, when you had bands that used to sing of lost love and have some real emotion and feel behind the music.
