Crystal Throne may seem like a name a power metal band might choose, but these guys play a punchy, traditional metal with just a hint of progressiveness to it on their self-titled debut. The bones of their songwriting style are taken from giants like Iron Maiden and Queensrÿche with a hint of Sanctuary in the way the vocal lines are delivered. Speaking of vocals, the singer has a strong voice, one that would suit this style well if he could stay in tune. A few lessons would probably do wonders but, as it is, he leans into the microphone with all his might and it pushes his singing off-key frequently, to the point where it becomes a real distraction. I also can't remember much about any of the songs (apart from the vocals) though the guitar work is well above average in a few places. Crystal Throne have some good tools in their toolkit, but they have others in desperate need of sharpening. Promising, but not nearly there yet.
