Tell the Wind

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)

Tell the Wind is the second album from Slovenia's Zaria, a band that combines elements of symphonic and folk metal into their songwriting. Their traditional/power metal base is taken in the folk direction on "Gea" and "Prek meglic preteklosti" with the addition of flutes and jig-style melodies, whereas cuts like "Evermore" lean into the symphonic/power metal realm. The singer has a lovely voice but one that is from the school of "operatically trained, singing metal" rather than "metal singer with operatic range." There's nothing wrong with her voice, it just lacks some of the low-end warmth and charisma that can really take a power metal song over the top. Zaria reminds me of Coronatus with perhaps some Edenbridge in the mix. There's nothing on Tell the Wind you likely haven't heard if you follow female-fronted symphonic metal, but that shouldn't stop you from checking it out.
