Gabriel Badelier the inspired, perceptive and artful author behind the highly revered French music review website Progcritique wrote a superb review of new progressive metal album “Metallia.” Progcritique is a website that features new reviews on the latest albums in the world of progressive rock.
I love Gabriel’s use of rich adjectives in the entire review and expressly in the description of “Dragon’s Kiss” and “Triumph”
A symphonic approach for “Dragon’s Kiss”, in truth a melodic melting pot to better blur the tracks, Olivia wanders according to her inspirations and goes from a nostalgic rock to a screaming and fusion metal, revealing an amazing skillfulness. The last “Triumph” track, which is a real slaughter, exudes a great freshness of inspiration and shows, if necessary, the imperial mastery of the lady.
Impregnated with a heavy atmosphere, an eclectic and electric music with a fast tempo, this “Métallia” is a very beautiful album where the lovers of Olivia Hadjiioannou and the others will find what they are looking for!
