Finland was always a cradle to many proficient and at the same time creative bands, but do you recall hearing good symphonic heavy/prog-power metal from over there? Apart from a very few obvious names, it isn't really an easy question, right? Lots of melodic/death/power metal and gothic formations are coming from that edge of Europe, but not many bands on the path taken by Symphony X, Circus Maximus, or Shadow Gallery. Well here's an answer then, it's called Anthriel. And it's a damn good one.

Solid album, "Haven of Grace" is probably the highlight for me. Turned out Jari Kuokkanen from Teräsbetoni is the drummer.

Edit: Sorry, not solid... excellent!

I just googled it and YES!! Aw man thanks for the info, I found their official homepage to be offline and no info on their facebook for quite a while, so I assumed that this happened. Excited for the album!!

They created a new Facebook page a while ago, which had steady updates once a few months or so up until album announcement. https://www.facebook.com/Anthriel

8.5/10 leaning towards an 8.

Just a few too many clichés to be a 9.

Great discovery for me. I agree with the above praise, it's a quality prog album with Symphony X pre-Paradise Lost elements which is a big plus for me. Of course the solos are not on the level of Michael Romeo or something equivalent and I am missing catchy song/choruses even though prog doesn't need that, Symphony X, Pagan's Mind, Dream Theater etc... have created great prog with some catchiness as well.

Thanks for the recommendation. Adamantra are solid but nothing that spectacular in my opinion. Anthriel have something unique going one, specially the second album "Transcendence"

Surprisingly good prog-power and the nice vocals help a lot.
I will listen to the second album today.
