…or so they say? Well, it is kinda late, but then again, I was too greedy – wanted to rat—I mean, listen to so much music, hence the delay.
Note that my rating scale may (and probably will) differ from yours. Short summary:
9 – amazing
8 – very good, recommended for everyone
7 – not bad, if you like the genre/band very much, you might give it a try…
6 – well, you CAN listen to it, but there’s no point. Boring/annoying for some reason. Not recommended (maybe if you’re a fanboy of the band – but in that case you’d already own the album)
Anything below 6 – no. Just no.
This or the Apocalypse – Dead Years // I’d rather have the Apocalypse…
All That Remains – A War You Can Not Win
As I Lay Dying – Awakened
Ektomorf – Black Flag
Every Time I Die – Ex Lives
Arthemis – We Fight
At Vance – Facing Your Enemy
Cradle of Filth – The Manticore and Other Horrors
Delain – We Are the Others
DragonForce – The Power Within
Eluveitie – Helvetios

AT VANCE - 'Facing Your Enemy' (AFM Records)
Release Date: 27th April 2012
At Vance are a German band formed in 1998 by guitarist Olaf Lenk and vocalist Oliver Hartmann. After eleven albums (two were compilations) and a number of line-up changes (only Lenk is left from the original line up) At Vance are back with their latest album 'Facing Your Enemy'.
For those who haven't heard the band I think the best way to describe them is Melodic Power/Neo-Classical Metal with a little bit of 80s Metal thrown in. Earlier albums have seen the band tackle classical pieces such as the first movement of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and 'Spring' and 'Summer' from Vivaldi's 'The Four Seasons'. There is none of this on this new album but it gives you an idea of the type of band they are.

What a great album this is. The last effort of now dead David Gold is certainly a swan song of quality. I have just begun to listen to this band at all, so this is the first album I have really given a listen - and I must say that I enjoy it a lot. Dark, gloomy, and melodic it rises and falls in intensity making it become more than just mellow doom. Traces of black metal and more traditional, and even goth, mix very well with the doom core. Good lyrics as well. One of the best albums this year so far.
Flying Colors - Flying Colors 9/10
This is not metal and should probably not be on this list, but what the hell. I'm normally not a fan of prog rock, and I've never of the members of this group even if they should be have some big names on the scene. The album however is awesome. It's packed with subtleties and proggy bonanza, but it's bound together by great melodies all around. …
