Review by: Urban "Wally" Wallstrom
Bloody'ell... we're off to a dodgy start... it's like a nightmare come true really. The opening track "The Hunger" kicks off with female vocals of the annoying sort and kind, and on top of everything... Fabio Lione of Rhapsody Of Fire. Argghhh!!! It's like a match making duo from hell and just enough to have any reviewer in tears of agony. But okay, let's try and see things from the positive side, shall we? Infinity Overture and their massive ehem, overture? follow the same routine like all the female goth acts and their alikes in the early 00's. Ghostly voices, pompous arrangements, the symphonic metal slant enchanted with progressive elements and blended with gothic textures. Yes, we've heard it all before and it's perhaps not the most original sound of lately. In fact, it's so utterly bland and '2001' that we are sure it's a flashback attack. Ten years after and too late? well, even though the new album is being more guitar driven due to some reduction of symphonic elements, I just can't stop thinking about the first Spiderman movie. Hey, this could have been something for the soundtrack, you know. Now it's just... meh.
