PANDAEMONIUM “The Last Prayer” /CD/

The third full-length album by Italian Power Metal band.
Pandemonium was formed in 1995 from the ashes of Mad Faith, a Thrash Metal band. Strongly inspired by fantasy literature and role playing game, Pandemonium changed their style into Power/Epic Metal, although only a few bands used to play that genre at that time. Some of band's influences we could have heard immediately. Such as:  Angra, Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Helloween and Nightwish.
“The Last Prayer” is such an amazing masterpiece: every instrumental aspect of this album is original for 100%. The guitar riffs are fantastic! The drumming work is surprisingly good and it comes to its best at the fifth track "Tower Of Fears", when the tempo is irregular like in a Progressive Metal band, but we must not forget that Pandemonium is a Power Metal band that have managed to create a beautiful décor for the story behind “The Last Prayer”. It is interesting to put a male vocalist with a dramatic voice combining an acoustic guitar parts like at the sixth track "The White Voice" and somewhere in the middle of this track to put a mind-exploding powerful guitar solo - 100% originality! Bravo!
It's such a great journey to all melodic Power Metal fans!! Highly recommend!!!
