01. Nothing To Save
02. Ghosts Of The Past
03. Awakening
04. Lost Path
05. Eidolon
06. Reborn
07. Recovering The Truth
08. The Burnt And The Frozen
09. The Forgiven
10. Sunless Rise

They're not quite as neoclassical as Children Of Bodom was, but slightly more dynamic. Certainly a good fix for the old-school CoB fanboys/girls looking for a worthy successor to that sound/style.

If you like old school CoB, then you'll love these dudes!

This album is just perfect! Superb handling of instruments, melodies and the voice is on pitch and perfectly timed. AWESOME!

PS: The keyboardist should get a fucking medal, it's been long since i heard such good compositions and attention to details in the samples!

Russia.

I actually discovered them back in 2009 when they released their 4 track demo. Needless to say, it's been a long 6 years I've been waiting for this album. And it was defo worth the wait!

This is really fucking good. I might have to change the rating to a 10 after a few more listens.

I have to admit, I'm glad I discovered them now, and didn't have to wait that long.

I pretty much can't stop listening to the track Eidolon.

Christ, this is awful. It's offensive from just about every angle, be it vocals, ludicrously camp melodies, overly sterile, autotuned sound etc.

Sounds like The Village People throwing strawberry blancmanges at me from a hot air balloon that has George Michael's contorted face on it.

I love early CoB too (up to Hatecrew in fact). This though... yuck. I never felt ashamed and dirty listening to CoB. Even at their worst.

Really? I'm surprised you're into that sort of thing.
Also, it doesn't help that I see psykometal recommending this on every CoB-related thread, since I always wanna yell out how wrong he is, but if other fans of early CoB like it then I guess there isn't much of a point to that, so good for them.

I don't profess to listen to it much these days, but it was early metal stuff I really liked. I also dig some Imperanon and Skyfire too, from that sort of genre.

Well CoB fans also seemed to like 'Halo Of Blood' as well, which I thought was pretty abysmal. This stuff though, I would have thought would be too cheese-based for them, but I guess not.

Never got into those other bands, within this whole extreme power thing I only really ever liked CoB and Wintersun.

I agree that Halo Of Blood was not the return to form all the fans made it out to be, but then I was never big on Hate Crew Deathroll in the first place, of which Halo borrowed a lot.

I think one or two bands is really enough for an extreme power metal diet.

Halo of Blood was generally hailed as a step in the right direction to a return to something like HCDR.

Also, in my defense, I'm nowhere near as picky or particular about metal as either of you 2. Lol

To say these guys are reminiscent of COB wouldn't be an incorrect statement, but there are definitely some serious differences here, especially in the obvious EDM influences that pop up here and there on this album and a nearly absent neoclassical edge... Seems like a lot of Russian power metal bands are in to EDM infusions in metal (Hammerforce, for instance). This band as a whole is going to turn a lot of people away by that and their really sugar, high-adrenaline compositions, and I can totally see why this would be a cringe-inducer to some. As for me, I'm an absolute sucker for it, and outside of a few little nitpicks here and there (wasn't a fan of the metalcoresque breakdowns in some of the non-demo tracks and the occasionally laughable "engrish" lyrics), I felt that this was a rather successful album with some really kickass tracks.

I don't really see the CoB relation in this band. Sure, as with most metal genres, guitars determine the melody, along with vocals (which bares no resemblance at all with CoB), but if there's a CoB fan out there that's hoping to find a band that brings back the nostalgia of back when CoB was worth anything, why on earth would you compare these guys to them? There's nothing neo-classical about Sunless Rise... At all... The only thing they have in common is fast guitars, and you could find quite a few other bands that more closely resemble CoB.

What Amaranthe could be if they dropped Elize and that bloody pop sensibility.
