Crillson - Coming Of A New Age - Arkeyn Steel Records - 2012 [ CD ]
The waiting is over. Glennallen, Alaska's (USA), finest Epic / Power Metal band Crillson returns back on the daylight with their 1993 debut plus their second unreleased 2000 album on another Arkeyn Steel Records release that will smash you down.
"Coming Of A New Age" was -and still is- one of the most desired titles for all the collectors and die hard Metal fans worldwide. It is NOT only the fact that the release was printed on an ultra limited edition CD back on 1993. It is mainly the fact that this release contains a unique type of Epic / Power Steel that hardly could be noticed in any similar band. Thanks to the guitar riffing, the mysterious interludes, the hammer crushing drumming and the outstanding vocals (Jesse Rezendes really ROCKS) this debut can easily reach the top slots on the list of classic Epic-Power releases.
Well I am sure that the 93 debut is already marked as a real classic among the Metalheads. However almost no one was aware of the band's second effort that was done back in 2000 and remained unreleased until today. Yes this is a second Crillson album -originally entitled "II"- that is packed together with the debut. In their 2000 album the band explores melodic and mysterious Metal paths creating a magical, epic musical mirror that reflects inspiration and talent. This is the type of Metal that will take you far far away. I can recall a release that have generated similar feelings on me -even after the first listening- and this is the Longings Past second "An Angel's Tale" release. Well I am sure I gave a good example. So expect a similar atmosphere on Crillson's music that is included on this unreleased second album.
From the ala Cirith Ungol / Manilla Road (middle period) and early Jag Panzer mid tempo outstanding Steel of the debut album until the mysterious, obscure Metal of the second, the music of this band will leave you speechless and yes everything is packed on a release full of photos, lyrics and stuff, the Arkeyn Steel way and of course everything is remastered. So this is the great chance for everyone to grab Crillson's complete discography on a release that does justice to this special band. No mediocre bootlegs, Crillson here are re-presented they way they deserve.
An absolute must.
