Female fronted Symphonic Power Metal is a genre that became very popular during the early 00s. Many bands around the world followed this musical path trying to be included on the realm of the big ones.

Well as the years went by, this particular hype faded a little bit and it seems that the bands that remained were the ones that really have to offer something on the musical side of things. There was also a bunch of newer bands that started around the beginning of the previous decade bringing fresh air to the genre. RAGE OF ROMANCE was one of those bands.

The band enters the second decade its existence and a new third album is their latest offering. Having studied quite deeply their two previous releases I can assure you that “Dark Equation Of God” is their best album so far.

Melodic, sold and powerful this album takes the listener straight into the golden age of Symphonic Power Metal reminding the classics of bands like AFTER FOREVER of WITHIN TEMPTATION.

For this new one the band has worked with a great singer from Mexico. Esthibaliz Rojas has a wonderful voice that really takes the songs to the very next level. Her range, her vocal melodies and the exotic color of her voice makes her the ideal choice for the RAGE OF ROMANCE realm.

In this one we can here some magnificent pieces of musical art like “Sands of Time”, “Distant Worlds” and “Mooncry”, songs that really confirm the greatness of the Symphonic Power Metal genre and the talent of RAGE OF ROMANCE.

With this album the band has set its standards very high. I hope that they will continue on their sky high route. As far as the listener: go out and check this one for sure!



“Dark Equation Of God” will be released on Steel Gallery Records, December 16th. Pre order here.

I breathe for music. And I am more than sure that my mission in this universe is to make everybody agree that "Awaken The Guardian" by FATES WARNING is the best album ever released, yes in all musical genres. My next mission is to feed homeless cats and when I am not busy with all this stuff I listen to US Prog / Power and Epic Doom Metal. And I cast spells in rituals in order to awake the old ones.

WARLORD: The legend of William J Tsamis lives – Interview and...

To tell you the truth I was a little bit skeptical when I first learned about the Warlord tribute project set by drummer and founding member Mark Zonder and singer Giles Lavery to honor the music and memory of founder guitarist William J Tsamis who unfortunately passed away back in 2021. I was looking at the facts very closely, reading announcements about forthcoming live shows, new line up and a new album. The response from the fans was massive including both positive and negative (or very negative) comments about the above facts. "How can Warlord exist without Bill Tsamis?", they were asking. One afternoon I got a call from Giles Lavery himself asking me if I wanted to do an advance review of the forthcoming Warlord album. I replied positively still being in this skeptical mood. It all went away after the first listen... William J Tsamis was there. His music, his legend, his compositions, evolved into complete songs. In total excitement I texted Giles a single message "Bill is alive". The very next evening found Mark, Giles and I talking about the album, about Bill, about the music and the legacy. It was late at night when we ended the call. I asked them if I can publish our conversation and they got no problem. So here it is again: Me talking with Warlord. The usual stuff I am doing the last 25 years for various reasons. But this time I would not call this conversation an interview. To my eyes this is a big ethical, artistic and soulful statement, by some people who want to keep the Dream, alive.
