It seems that BLACK MAJESTY‘s debut album “Sands of Time” was out in another world, another time. Too many things have changed since 2003, with first thing the popularity of European Power Metal but it seems that BLACK MAJESTY don’t give a shit.

Fifteen years after their debut album and seven albums later they stubbornly continue to tread in the path of Europower metal. In case you are not familiar with them just imagine a mixture of early ANGRA with HELLOWEEN, and add some HEAVEN’S GATE, early SCANNER and EDGUY themes. And should you consider that this is just another generic power metal album i would suggest you should listen carefully. Black Majesty though they do not go awry from the usual recipe they do have some profoundly conceptions in their songwriting.

Lingering only to the basic recipe which includes tween lead guitars, high pitched vocals and a steady rhythmic section they manage to impress even the most cantankerous listener. Their carefree melodies together with their catchy choruses and a touch of cheesiness (but not lameness) create an easy listening album that will awaken memories of different times (in case you were around in early 00’s of course). The guitar work is astonishing with precise leads while John Cavaliere as always gives a massive performance.

To make a long story short, “Children of The Abyss” is not a life changing album, but its a fun to listen collection of songs made with respect both to the metal scene and the listener. Enjoy.

Interview with HORIZON’S END

Speaking with HORIZON'S END mastermind - Sakis Bandis (keyboards) is a beautiful adventure, like each and every listen to each and every of their songs. There were really a lot of things to be discussed, as this is the very first interview that took place after the band's reunion. There is new music, there is this sudden (or not so sudden?) comeback, there is an album that was recorded but never released and a whole band that was put on ice many moons ago. Sakis spread some light to all those topics that waited for years to be clarified and to many new ones, as a new journey to the end of an infinite horizon has already started!
