Suffer to Glory

Rated 4.33/5 (86.67%) (9 Votes)

This is an unsigned band (really, just one guy) from Baltimore playing the kind of highly melodic metal with harsh vocals that is usually a European phenomenon. Bands like Children of Bodom, Wintersun, and even Eternal Tears of Sorrow pioneered the sound this band is clearly aiming at. Bright, hooky playing, a clean and sharp guitar attack, and keys to add a symphonic gloss to the whole thing. There are some very nice bits on this album, but it suffers from the same problems that often plague bands of this type: the songs don’t have enough identity, nor enough ideas to really sustain them. This is well done, but it’s been done before and done better.
