An Entire Legion - Flame Wizard

An Entire Legion

From the moment you play the first track entitled “When We Were Kings” you are sent speeding into what I can only describe as a mixture of powerful vocal lines, and heavy classic Rock textured guitar parts, I think the only down side to this song is I felt that it could have been executed better when it came to the chorus and the vocals, besides this I enjoyed the song very much.

Next up we have the song entitled “Mary Sockins” a much heavier and more industrial feeling song, from listening to this track I am able to hear elements of STATIC X and early SLIPKNOT which I feel might be some of the bands influences, from the very second this track begins you are immediately bombarded with a heavy groove of guitars and powerful gritty vocals, I felt that the mixture between the heavier to softer sound was an interesting combination, I feel that this might be one of the better songs off of this record as it has a very angry feel to it and in some ways a very personal touch coming from both the vocals and the lead guitars, all in all I think that the work put into this song has the potential to go far.

From the very beginning of the song entitled “Richest Eyes” we start with a piano introduction which is very beautifully played through the first few minutes of this track, I felt that this was a very interesting way to begin this piece as it is something you wouldn’t expect which I feel is a very clever move to do on their part, through the entire song we hear a mixture of melodies and synthesisers creating a unique and beautiful mixture, in every way I feel that this has to be one of my personal favourites of off this record.

All in all I feel that “Flame Wizard” holds up to its name, a very interesting and magical experience as if taking a long awaited journey into one’s own mind, bringing different elements and styles this album has a great potential to go far.
