Editorial Reviews

2006 release from the Finnish Prog/Metal band featuring Mikko Harkin (Sonata Arctica ) and Alessandro Lotta (Rhapsody). The story of Wingdom started back in 1998 when ex-Sonata Arctica Harkin (keyboards) and Jukka Ruotsalainen (guitar) started to work on some fresh and inspiring song ideas. They were soon joined by Sami Asp (vocals), Markus Niemispelto (drums) and ex-Rhapsody bass player Lotta. During the recording process of the album Wingdom caught the attention of Timo Kotipelto of Stratovarius fame. He enjoyed the fresh and original appearance of the music and offered to release the album Reality through his own label High and Loud in Finland. The sound of Wingdom can be described best as very melodic with progressive elements and a sharp metallic edge. Catchy choruses and strong melodies guaranteed! Dockyard.

Format: Audio CD
I'll make this brief. I found curiosity in Wingdom because keyboardist Mikko Harkin (Sonata Arctica/Mehida)and wanted to listen to more "faith inspired" lyrics.

This is progressive metal, not power/melodic/ect. Think Angra's Angels Cry. It's what I would describe as being very outer space-like kinda of music being predominately low to mid tempo. The singer, Sami, has a nice clean voice that fits the music well. The harsh vox on "A Sigh of Despair" add an nice touch to an otherwise soft vocal approach.

Musically, the guitars are mostly for some crunch; no blaring solos or lengthy harmonies found here. Keys take the lead here, though most songs are glued by vocals. Nice change honestly.

Like all great albums, Reality may take a few listens to really appreciate.
