Diviner – Fallen Empires

0

I can’t even remember since when I was informed about this project featuring Y.Papanikolaou, G.Maroulis, T.Krikos, H.Bouziots and F.Samoilis. So, here it is in the flesh…
With the first spin “Fallen Empires” leads you through classic paths with a few modern touches, while musically it’s surely closer to Innerwish than any other band whose members are involved on this one. It’s obvious that there’s been some very hard work done in the song writing department, since everything has its cause and nothing is left to chance. The incredible melody in “Kingdom Come”, the eastern “Riders From The East” and the fan anthem “The Legends Goes On” are the proof.

There was no doubt that the playing would be top notch, since here we have players with tons of experience of shows, studio work, sessions, producing and discography. On vocals Y.Papanikolaou is an old school frontman captivating and impressing as he sings every song like it’s his last. The production is crystal clear, as it should be in such a good album, while the mastering was overseen by Peter In de Betou who’ve worked with Arch Enemy, Opeth, Amon Amarth.

It’s very pleasant and optimistic to add another band with great talent and prospect in the ranks of the Greek scene. Can’t wait for them to get on a stage and play live…
