Norhod – Voices from the Ocean

norhod_vfto

 

The band is basically built around their operatic version of symphonic power metal, bringing along a finely-tuned sense of grandiose rhythms and bombast into the proceedings as the main component here that captures a rather large, massive tone throughout here. There’s plenty of charging power metal riffing as well as over-the-top drumming which really completes the overall picture as the general tone is clearly symphonic power metal, yet the fact that the melodies and rhythms here come more from orchestral soundtracks than they do from a more metallic stand-point certainly makes this a much darker, more evocative experience here than just simply placing the tried-and-trusted power metal here alongside these newfound rhythms..
