Tales from Near and Far

Rated 3.6/5 (72%) (5 Votes)

Here we have the latest from Poseidons Anger, which could be categorized as "multiple-personality-disorder metal". The core band is just two guys, but they have a bunch of guest musicians and vocalists and, as a result, an eclectic mix of song styles in the heavy and power metal genres. Melodic? Somewhat operatic vocals? Harsher vocals? "Classic metal" vocals? Thrash-ish songs? You see where I'm going with this. It's a very varied album with something for everyone into those genres and I'd say there's no song that I would consider bad, though "Vercingetorix" annoys me by being potentially my favourite, but the chorus and a few effects kind of ruin the mood. Oh well, can't have everything.

All this diversity comes at the cost of a coherent ensemble, as this feels more like a random collection of songs rather than an actual album. I really had to step back and take in each song on its own. Your mileage may vary, but either way there's a lot of cool stuff here.
