You have a song here that is very Heavy with many great parts that will lift up the band. The first track “Dreamer” is an acoustic one in the Flamenco style so I was expecting a shredding album but it ain’t as the singer pops on some songs for few lines or just as the main singer. It is very interesting to see and hear people who have tried to share their love into one band’s creation.
You can easily hear influences from many styles and artist such as Aldi Meola, David T Chastain, Megadeth, Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen, Dio, Within Temptation….guitarists lovers will dig this album. A nice song with an acoustic battle guitar called “Origen” before ending the album with a much heavier song , with amazing solo at the beginning “Stranger in This Land” is a powerful ending and gives the hope for more songs to come in that vibe.
This six tracks EP is just a masterpiece in every ways , Arkhe is bringing us a fresh and new music world that will be conquered quickly. You can find them on every digital platforms and own this masterpiece to enjoy and spend pleasure moments. A must have 100/100.
