Mythodea - Mythodea review

Mythodea - S/t (Digital Release) 

Far beyond the pleasure of completing a work of art, a relief dominates above all. Its the relief that something worth listening reach its final destination: the audience. The release of the Mythodea , an inspirational work from guitarist Christos Nikolaou is finally out, featuring classy musicians such as Vitalij Kuprij, Mistheria on keyboards, bassist Steve DiGiorgio, Charlie Zeleny on drums and John West on vocals.

Christos worked under no time pressure and the symphonic Power Metal identity with quite a few Prog elements reached a top level. Wonderful and catchy melodies on guitars and keyboards, fine vocals lines that John highlights with his own delicate expression force my to consider Mythodea  a must for all fans of the genre.

Combining professionalism with passionate expression, Mythodea is a debut that deserves attention. Including songs like “In My Soul”, the ballad “Nostalgia”, “Mnemosyne”, "Asia" and my favorite “Ultimate Pain”, this album is wonderful. I also believe that Mythodea must already be considered as a bright example of how Symphonic Power/Prog Metal should be performed. And this is a comment that deserves to be stated in this work.

Check the band’s page: The album is available in the most known digital music stores, like iTunes, Amazon and 7 digital. Link for amazon  and Link for iTunes
