Three years after their well received debut album “Cenotaph” the theatralic Metal journey continues. The canadian outfit OPERUS, whose band members are also part of bands and projects like Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Annihilator, Vital Remains or Skull Fist, combine all well-known Power Metal elements with orchestral arrangements.

It is Trans-Siberian Orchestra meets Power Metal like Rhapsody, Stratovarius or At Vance and includes the theatralic mood of Meat Loaf’s “Bat out of Hell” trylogy. Some parts are very progressive, so you can also check it out if you like Kamelot or Nightwish. I don’t know if the songs were recorded with a real orchestra or a very good software, but it sounds real.

The high class production and the great song arrangements of tracks like “Phantasia”, “Lost” or the massic hit “Where Falcons Fly” make this album a worth listening one if you like this kind of Metal.

Artistic this is world-class, played and sung very professional. These guys are all top notch musicians and singers, but for me to be honest it is to much to listen to constantly.
