The Storm - Scythe Of Orion - Sun-dial
Label: Scythe Of Orion - SOOP003 • Format: CDr Album • Country: Finland • Genre: Rock • Style: Heavy Metal
Scythe Of Orion and their first long play release, "Sun-Dial". I quite like this, it's different. Mystical metal music and not just another female fronted Goth act. The Finland based band certainly are a promising and fresh prospect. Keyboardist Kristian Wrang bring a certain dreamy atmosphere of mystic to the table and the violin by Maarit Koivisto merely add yet another layer of myth and medieval ways.
The lyric tells about the values of today's world. There are songs about greed, the use of power, and the state of nature.
It's been mastered by Mika Jussila at the famous Finnvox studios and their lead singer Anu Lamminsaari is a very confident and strong vocalist. Unfortunately, the vocals are perhaps a tad too strong and heavy on the accent and could at times almost be mistaken for J-Pop or ABBA-ish?
I do however enjoy Anu's sweet voice! Main songwriter Petri Lamminsaari guitar cites Arjen Lucassen's Ayreon-recordings as one source of inspiration, but there are several others and the chances of finding Scythe Of The Storm - Scythe Of Orion - Sun-dial as just another copy-cat act are actually quite slim. It's definitely different from the rest. I don't understand why there's a CD-R in the digipack though?
It's really not too expensive to get the real deal nowadays and especially not if you're a company of five or six musicians. Some Of Them Are Old - Brian Eno - Here Come The Warm Jets verdict: Neat!
