Fresh French nightmare
Score: 8 of 10

Fresh French nightmare. Recently, probably, in France a wave of love of power broke up. Last year has released a little quite good albums - Dyslesia and Heavenly, for example. And, the new fifth album (for twenty years' career) was released by the oldest French band - Nightmare. Rather unusual sympho-power-speed metal. Classical rough and powerful vocal, rigid riffes, high-speed guitar, keyboard passages, everything's like standardly and also reminds a mix of Grave Digger and Helloween with symphonic in spirit Rhapsody. But Terje Refsnes worked with group in quality of producer , whom have huge experience with many groups, but at the same time all of them played music distinct from Nightmare, more extreme than melodious heavy-metal. He has written down to an album all parties of keyboard and all orchestral arranges. I do not know, is this him idea or group's, but at record opera chorus from five men (3 female and 2 man's vocals), similar sounding on records Tristania also was involved. The chorus is present at all songs, carrying out a role of vocal in refrains. It is a highlight of an album. Without it, on my sight, the album would not be so interesting. Though, I shall not be too much categorical, and without it here is what to listen: competent juicy wonderful solos, correct alternation of fast songs with slow, double drums, epic atmosphere, set of influences of heavy-metal of eightieth. I hope, at this group the time will tell still weighty word and to support renome of all French on the European metal stage.
