Aria Flame - A World Of Silence Award winner

Aria Flame
A World Of Silence
by Katarzyna Zakolska at 27 October 2014, 11:24 PM

ARIA FLAME is Neo-classical female fronted metal band with a circus flare from West Michingan in USA. The band was created in the spring of 2011 by dramatic mezzo soprano singer and composer, Aziza Poggi and percussionist Erik Sales. Their debut EP was released on 11th October 2014.

My totally number one of this album is powerful “Realm Of Hate” which enters with a gentle climate of oriental keys, deep voice of Aziza with fantastic sounds – song is building step by step – from calm to more intensive and energetic! I like this song so much! Baroque style mixing heavier riffs, magnificent keys and opera singing vocalist. Another great one is “Divine World” where keys sounds like a organs from a vampire movie. Together with deep vocal that sounds incredible! Vocalist Aziza Poggi is so talented, singing in operatic soprano, and most importantly with passion! Amazing climate and impressive atmosphere is create by progressive change rate and energetic memorable chorus; the band make a smooth transition between epic and calm – it's is unbelievable. Gentle piano with classic voice opening “The Lonely Phoenix” really caught my heart – it makes for a ballad style song and then more powerful vocal with stronger guitars evoke a darker atmosphere. Changeable sounds, choir in refrain is very powerful and I love this, because it is so memorable together with a mix of dark sounds and calmer piano.

Titled track “A World Of Silence” has powerful guitars and keys which give goosebumps. Music of band needs to focus only on ARIA FLAME sounds. Opening “My Muse” shows that bands using diversity in their work – opera singing, choir, progressive sounds and massive guitars make a great atmosphere. Singing in ballad climate with piano could to listen in “My Own Little Hell” which sounds like a lullaby, then suddenly higher passionate music hits the listener's ear. Here is perfect guitar solo and then easy flow to gentle piano.

The music of ARIA FLAME is magic! They create music, total different than others do. They seems to be special on music market. Musically album is well done & enjoyable of listening it. This album is totally interesting. I'm sure that everyone who loves Neo-classical Metal with connections of Progressive, Baroque and female voice and well-worked melodies will enjoy this CD. Surely they are a band who play such music, which triggers so many emotions through sounds in music. Every listening to “A World Of Silence” can to show new picture to listener. During each listening one uncover new beauty in the music. After each hearing, my rating of the music grew… I'm looking forward on their new songs in the future and wish to see them one day on stage.
