Rated 1.75/5 (35%) (4 Votes)

This is the debut for one-man band Battle Symphony, which is really just a guy named Nikos Tzouannis and a bunch of guests he recruited. This is very much in the vein of musicians like Antti Martikainen or Beto Vasquez who do all the composing and employ session players for the stuff they can't do alone. With such a diverse list of players and singers (including such vocal luminaries as Rob Tyrant and Daniel Heiman), the performances are of a high quality, but the overall sound and feel of the album tends to be a little inconsistent. Some of the compositions are really strong ("Soul Survivors" sounds like a lost Labyrinth song), but others are kind of dull, only highlighted by strong musicianship. If you like symphonic stuff then this is worth a listen, but it's not as good as it ought to be with this kind of talent involved.
