The Legacy of Atlantis

Rated 3.83/5 (76.67%) (6 Votes)

I became aware of Imperial Age through, of all things, a sponsored Facebook post a few weeks ago and decided to check them out, looking for something a little different. I'm glad I did... Well, sort of. Let's just say that this album has been monopolizing a lot of my time.

Everything about this album is over the top—in a good way. The vocals are shared between two women and a man and are definitely a highlight here, almost always going for a powerful operatic style that just makes you want to sing along, and those melodies just instantly stick in your head. Musically, the symphonic vibe overshadows "the metal" but you always have that, sharp metallic edge faithfully following along. Just like the vocals, the musical melodies are very catchy and most are guaranteed to stick with you and pop in your head at any time of the day—that can even get a little annoying at times. ;)

The Legacy of Atlantis is large-scale storytelling and Imperial Age have done an amazing job writing grandiose and epic music to deliver it. I dare you not to want to play conductor while listening to the album. More of this, please?
