A Beautiful Atrocity
A Beautiful Atrocity
This is Modern Melodic Metal, with Traditional Metal, Power Metal, and Hard Rock outbursts,and is there anything more compelling than that mix?...If you ever thought that you've heard it all, you might want to think again.
I give credits to Bernt Fjellstad for excellent vocals. There aren’t many vocalists in Norway that can match this voice, dare I proclaim “the best heavy metal vocalist in Norway”?
…The diversity is clear in all aspects of this release, so do not expect another Helloween/Gamma Ray/Edguy-like clone here, no this is deeper and more thought through than that.
They have undoubtedly written 13 classic songs, that continue to fascinate. Not only because of the varied structure, but also because of the musical and vocal talent..."A beautiful atrocity" is an outright winner. Buy it now, it would be a shame if you miss this!
It is downright scandalous that it took me so many years to be aware of such a cool metal band.
...cassic melodic metal still bring real surprises. Guardians of Time succeed with "A Beautiful Atrocity". It is a varied concept album, the metal is pure, but far from boring
Guardians Of Time comes with one, in my view, very special album of extremely high quality. “A Beautiful Atrocity” is a lone peak in its genre…“A Beautiful Atrocity” is next to ingenious with variation and perfection in all regards. As a fan, this is for sure a thing you have to hear.
...addictive high octane heavy metal with unbelievable melodies! ...Guardians of Time is a band in its own right, concentrating on the thing that matters most: producing superb songs!
Every now and again a band comes along that makes you wonder why you’ve never heard of them. Thundering into view, Norway’s Guardians Of Time certainly fall into that category...the songs are pretty damn fantastic! ...there’s no doubt that Guardians Of Time are amongst the best the genre has to offer.
The Norwegians were previously unknown to me. Wrongly, as I discovered. For the guys make truly brilliant melodic, diverse and extremely balanced metal.
If I am to recommend a band in the genre progressive speed metal this spring, it is Guardians of Time!
This is 100% pleasure! One of the essential ones for 2011!
...after having listened through the album a couple of times, despite its complexity, it continues to revealed new details. It leaves me no choice but to conclude that "A Beautiful Atrocity" is highly recommended.
Superb vocal deliveries ranging from kinda low up to very clear. And when he opens all registers, you surely will be astonished by a brilliant manner of high pitched vocal lines as well. Speaking about a great singer – you’ve got one here!
"A Beautiful Atrocity" has no weak or boring moments, something that is rare in the genre of power/progressive metal.
