Sweeping and Bombastic Symphonic Metal Masterpiece. On their fourth album, the Austrian Symphonic Metal band dives deep into long forgotten centuries and draws the listeners attention to historical personalities like Henry VIII of England, Napoleon or Alexander the Great. Numerous concerts have matured the band’s songwriting skills and the interaction between the individual musicans. This is the reason why “War of Ages” is filled with excellent and characteristic compositions and world-class refrains, for which the term “catchy” would be an understatement. The mixture of remarkable riffs, perfect timed variations from symphonic passages up to ballads, shows SERENITY’s ability to write haunting songs. The band has reached their musical and lyrical height and in particular Georg Neuhauser impresses with his best vocal performance so far! Friends of AVANTASIA or KAMELOT have to make sure to give this album spin!
