Italy's Manach Seherath is a relatively new Symphonic Metal band, formed in 2012, and their first release is a 3-song, self-titled demo. The vocalist reminds me of Armory's Adam Kurland with his high, powerful vibrato and that gives Manach Seherath a definite Power Metal vibe but mostly what their music makes me think of is Progressive Metal. The keyboards don't play many classically-inspired runs; they seem concerned with type of melodies you hear on Anubis Gate albums. I'm no songwriter but even to me the songs on Manach Seherath sound somewhat pedestrian, not surprising I suppose for a young band's first efforts. The melodies are simple and there isn't much in the way of actual riffs to latch on to. Add the vocal lines which don't mesh particularly well and what you've got are three songs that are more collections of individual performances than actual "songs."
Talent notwithstanding, as these guys can most certainly play, Manach Seherath have some work to do in the songwriting department if they want to make a stir in the field of Symphonic Metal. There are just way too many other, better bands doing this style today.
