Review @ ratsnickers

20 June 2009
This is Altaria's second release ('Invitation' being their first) and they play melodic power metal.
All the tracks are very melodic and will have you nodding your head and tapping your feet very quickly, but they sound very much like your standard Helloween/Hammerfall clone band with the occasional (unfortunate) Europe type moment thrown in.
However as i have already implied their lack of originality is not necessarily a huge problem as the songs are enjoyable to listen to and i'm sure they are great in the live enviroment of a concert as it is very easy to sing along to their catchy tunes.
The problem they do have to contend with is that they just do not stand out from numerous other power metal acts (though more enjoyable than pure Helloween copyists like Edguy) and they will probably disappear into the mire of also-rans unless they can give themselves an edge.
If you are a big power metal fan (i do love power metal but prefer the rawer style like Sacred Steel etc.) and can't wait for the next melodic masterpiece from Helloween or Gamma Ray then buy this as there is much you will enjoy but for the rest of us (and i must state that i really do like Hammerfall) it's a case of try before you buy.
