Grimgotts – Dragons of the Ages

Far from their Harry Potter themed power metal (which I am still a little disappointed they abandoned), I feel like Grimgotts have a potentially great future as a band together. They have their own take on power metal which is reminiscent of the Swedish power metal scene with bands such as Dragonland and Bloodbound springing to mind, but they add their own twist with the nautical themes which don’t dive straight into the pirate metal trope.

Amon Amarth – Berserker

Amon Amarth have successfully managed to try something new whilst still holding true to their roots and previous records. They have got the right balance between maintaining their sound while keeping it fresh, and that, in my opinion, is not always an easy thing to do, particularly for a band such as Amon Amarth who have such a distinctive sound and image.

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.
