Album of the month

He is back. Andy B. Franck is back with Symphorce. After the releasing of one of the best album of the year with Brainstorm, Ambiguity (killer album that you should own as soon as possible), I was very impatient to listen again to this excellent singer. Sooner Andy will be recognized as one of the best singer in the metal scene. This is what I think at least. Now let talk about this Sinctuary.

With the help of Achim Köhler (Primal Fear, Sinner, DC Cooper), Symphorce recorded the new album in House of Music Studio in Winterbach. Sinctuary is very impressive due AGAIN to Andy's vocals. Of course, Brainstorm and Symphorce seems very similar today, where Symphorce is more power metal oriented and Brainstorm more power/thrash oriented. If you like Brainstorm's Ambiguity, you will appreciate even more this new Symphorce album. Songs are powerful and will convince every power metal fan (some excellent keyboards effects have been also included here and there). Guitars solos are great and they stay in your mind for a while. Ballads are brilliant, with excellent melodic choruses.

Sinctuary reflects a new development for Symphorce. The band is today much more powerful and varied. The song-writing has improved a lot as well. If I can give you a piece of advise it will be this one : run to your metal store and buy this excellent piece of power metal ... and if you don't have Brainstorm's new album, buy it also. Your metal collection deserve it.
