The Citadel - 2011 - A Passage Through Eternity
1. A Voice Beyond
2. Demon's Eye
4. When The Storm Begins
The Citadel are now back with a brand new 5-track mini-album entitled A Passage Through Eternity, which is released on Feb 23.
This after their previous "Brothers of Grief", launched four years ago.
If someone does not know these guys: The Citadel is a Swedish quintet that combines influences of different metal scenes in a rich variety of topics, with tracks that show passages ranging from Heavy to Power Metal.
The Citadel is melodies and harmonies in perfect communication with a truly unique voice, the singer Jonas Radehorn cannot fail to impress the listener.
This new round called "A Passage Through Eternity" is a good album but perhaps they lack something for another step in the evolution of the formation of Sundsvall.
The album opens with the theme on which the melody is queen, "A Voice Beyond", and after a brief intro, the chorus and the voice of Jonas Radehorn, are undoubtedly the most characteristic elements of it.
"Demon's Eye" is next on the list and with a heavier sound than before, it is the theme that I like, because of the rhythms that catch you and a perfect harmony created by a good instrumental section.
The remaining three songs have the same characteristics: a lot of melody, gentle and very quiet rhythms and vocal work, which seem to be the general theme of the entire disk, as well as the meet of guitars (with some good solo and riff) and the rhythm section.
In conclusion, "A Passage Through Eternity" has an acceptable drive but lacks that spark needed to go from being a normal album to a good one.
