Archontes - Book One - The Child of Two Worlds

Archontes-Book One - The Child of Two Worlds If you listened to a few particular tracks on this CD, and were asked what genre of music the band played, you probably wouldn't answer "power metal." Despite an abundant number of power metal tracks here on "Book One" - the CD often becomes something else entirely.

As you might expect from a power metal band, "Book One" is a concept album, or part of an overall concept (will there be a Book Two, Book Three, etc.?). What sets this CD apart from others in the genre, however, is the band's heavy use of keyboards, piano and orchestral arrangements. Sandwiched here and there throughout the CD (and, indeed, within various tracks) are songs and segments that would be at home on an Andrew Lloyd Webber cast album.

That's not so much a bad thing as it is a surprising thing. The power metal tracks hereon are as complex and technical as any you're likely to hear elsewhere while the slower, piano-based numbers are something different, not quite seeming out of place but being obvious in their uniqueness.
