Electronica Art Metal this is the way Dol Ammad defines their music… no wait, wait, Electronica Art Metal?? what the hell is this? I have an answer my friends, this is Dol Ammad. I know you're all confused, so let's explain what kind of music is this Electronica Art Metal (I have to admit it, it has a nice ring to it), anyway, what Dol Ammad offers is a mix of techno music (or trance music, anyway you call it), with a lot of synthesizers, and a 11 member classical choir ala Therion.

This rare brew of Metal is the brainchild of Greek composer Thanasis Lightbridge, and I must say that this demo is one of the best surprises of the year so far! The music is so innovative and refreshing, you've never heard anything like this before!

6 tracks. 28 minutes. 28 minutes of a fantastic journey through electronic landscapes and magical choirs. Starting by Eclipse (Corona of the sun), One of the best openers I've ever heard in my life! Starts with an electronic beep, and Wham! The choir, the guitars, the double bass, simply astonishing!, other killer tracks are Boxed Daylight (I & II) and The Hill of Hope, this one featuring really catchy keyboards.

I just can't wait to listen Dol Ammad signed and with a record contract, because with a better production (although this one sounds great) and a bigger chorus (wow!) this band could go BIG. Some bands are destined to make the difference, Dol Ammad is one of them.
