Hallas – Conundrum

Two years after the release of their highly esteemed album, Exerpts From A Future Past, Swedish Adventure Rock quintet HÄLLAS sprinkle some magic dust with Conundrum, the final installment of their mysterious trilogy. Dark retro rock with a dash of mystery successfully invites its listeners for a cosmic ride through a parallel world. Somewhere between the open spaces of hidden soundscapes and straight-up 70’s rock riffs, the sonic maze of Conundrum draws you out of the everyday life. HÄLLAS evokes a bizarre world that reveals a magnificent reincarnation of progressive art rock, psychedelic and folk in its most authentic way. The opening track “Ascencion” beguiles with rising atmospheric synth spheres and leads its listener directly to the clutches of “Beyond Night And Day”. Strong 70’s rock vibes merging with psychedelic sounds simultaneously reflects the soundscape of the track and Conundrum itself. Heavy rock riffs enhanced with synthesizer melodies and carefully refined progressive licks define “Tear Of A Traitor”. Followed by the hymn “Carry On”, these overwhelming songs truly highlight the album. Once you start listening, Conundrum floods your senses, ingests your mind and draws you deep into a psychedelic sonic adventure rock labyrinth from which you cannot escape.

Archon Angel – Fallen

A new band project born from a meeting between producer/guitar player Aldo Lonobile (Secret Sphere) and former Savatage and Circle II Circle vocalist Zak Stevens Circle II Circle during the making of Timo Tolkki’s Avalon’s ‘Return To Eden’ album, of which Aldo produced and played guitar and Zak did some guest lead vocals. The two soon started talking to Frontiers about the concept of working on new music together, which was met with great enthusiasm from the label. Aldo submitted to Zak some song ideas which were reminiscent of the classic Savatage sound of records such as “Edge Of Thorns” and “Gutter Ballet”. The two felt the magic was there, so no time was wasted in getting together to craft an absolutely striking metal album.
