8.5
A relatively new band, Whyzdom have managed to write some impressive music for their first two albums. Their sophomore effort, Blind?, features a new singer who has a nice range, but, for some, she may sound a little poppy. With this direction it might be easy to dismiss Whyzdom as just another clichéd 'symphonic metal' band with a stock female singer and soft, boring instruments in the background. However, Blind? is heavier on the guitars than other bands, and the music as a whole is more progressive, too. What's more is that the songs are long in length, with nothing under 5:03 minutes, and the album lasts a good hour and fifteen minutes. This may seem daunting to those who hate progressive music, but Blind? manages to deliver a varied, solid result.

Wow the album rating and comments are really misleading ... I love both the music and the vocals . great stuff .



I agree fully.... I don't understand the rating...
I think it's a really good album, better than the first one. The music is heavy and complex, different from other symphonic bands. I like the prog side, and I don't have any problem with the vocalist either. She has a strong and good voice, which fits well in the songs. I don't want her to sound operatic like the other bands of the genre, or sound "heavy" like Doro (who I never liked)... I'm sad that she is not in the band anymore, but I will check out the new vocalist too, I trust the guys that they found a good one

Heh, you guys nailed it with this vocalist, she is really incredible. I like her live performance in this video, and I hope she does great in the studio department as well. Can't wait for some more quality material. Hope I can get to see you guys sometime live, the performance is outstanding!

The music is not bad at all (I wonldn't dare say that), but the samples - are those used randomly?? What's the point in making a symphonic album if you cannot establish and keep a certain concept?

I'm not sure which samples you're talking about ? Anyway, we just released a music video which sticks quite well to our concept I think . Have a look there :
