Between Visions & Lies

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (8 Votes)

Black Fate was formed in 1990, so they have been around a pretty long time. Their progressive Metal makes me think of bands like Kamelot and Dream Theater, although executed with less progressive and more stripped-down elements that one can find on Dream Theater albums and less dramatic sounding compared to Kamelot. Black Fate manage to sound really good, well rehearsed and absolutely pleasing. Vocalist Vasilis Georgiou is one of the best finds for me as of late. I would compare his voice mostly to Tommy Karevik's (Kamelot, Seventh Wonder), as Vasilis has the same melodiousness and vocal charisma in his voice. He's also good at near-ballad type of songs as "Without Saying a Word" proves so convincingly, but power ballads aren't anything new to him either (check out "The Game of Illusion"). Black Fate come off sounding like a very coherent and target-orientated group. By all accounts, Between Visions & Lies is very much worth checking out.
