Aldaria – Land Of Light


First off, comparisons to Avantasia are absolutely unavoidable in this case, as everything from the naming scheme to the way certain songs sound to the overall concept and even some individual lyrics, all feel like obvious nods to the German project. Perhaps the most blatant example of this comes early on, as the opening track “Another Life”, otherwise a really fun track and an excellent opener, has the line ‘Reach out for the light” as the opening of its chorus, and obviously anyone who’s heard The Metal Opera will know why that feels like more than a mere coincidence. There are obviously many other similar lyrics throughout which, intentional or not, definitely made me think of a certain album.
