Angeli di Pietra – ‘Anthems of Conquest’ (2011)
Release: 3 June 2011
Label: CCP Records
After their strong album “Storm Over Scaldis, the Belgian band thought it was time to present the world a new album.
The album opens strongly with “Last Flight of the Valkyries,” which both the female and male voice well in painted out, even the guitar parts are delicious Angeli di Pietra’s.
With the two-part “Fate of the Promised Land”, the band also shows their able to put down a longer story, without the listener getting bored. The title song is a very catchy song. But then the band uses a dose of humor, which, although funny, doesn’t really fit in in this album.
All in all this is a solid album, with the downside it’s somewhat unbalanced on the whole. For me the nasty feeling remains, the band would easily had earned 8 out of 5 points with a better production.
