Akoma – Revangels


The inevitable comparisons with such stellar bands as Within Temptation, Epica, Nightwish and Xandria will definitely surface with fans of the Symphonic genre upon hearing this album, and yes, ok, there are elements of some if not all of the above lurking within but never to the point of sounding like a copy. This album stands alone as one of the finest Female Fronted releases of recent years, and take my word for it, I’ve listened to a great many! The duet with ex Leaves Eyes vocalist Liv Kristine on the title track ‘Revangels’ is mesmerising,  insanely catchy and just downright uplifting. The amazing hard hitting riffs and Operatic passages of ‘Change Of Propensity’ are just neck breaking.
