This is Manticora's first studio album, now available again in Europe and the United States. Quickly go out and purchase all four of their albums if you like any of the styles I mention in the title.

This is the best first album from any band that I have heard. Blind Guardian is(was) my long-time favorite band but it is not until their fourth album that I really begin to *love* their music. I heard Manticora's albums in reverse, but I would have loved them from the front if I had been lucky enough to have been able to hear them sooner.

Read my reviews of Hyperion and 8 Deadly Sins to get an idea of their sound - I don't want to be too monotonous. Here are the high points: Amazing dual guitars; Powerful, intricate drumming; perfectly balanced, virtuoistic keyboard, and perfectly pitched singing with the slightest of agressive edges (perfectly pitched meaning not screechingly high like almost all other power metal bands).

The highlights of this album are:

Intoxicated - great thrashy drumming, surprising time changes, and wonderful singing across a range of emotions.

and

Nowhere Land - Absolutely prefect drumming, premium song structure, and the emotion of the singing is infectious.

Not that the other songs are bad, of course. The entire album is a very rewarding listen. The music never grows stale, and that is exactly what Manticora is - never stale - always reaching within and pulling out greater and greater music with each disc.

Buy this disc, you will enjoy it, but buy there other discs as well for an even more complete and enrapturing experience.

As a previous reviewer said about his love for Blind Guardian, it suddenly hit me. Well, first of all, Manticora is a Power/Progressive Metal band kind of in the same vein of Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, and their side-project, Demons & Wizards. By that I mean, their music is very progressive in time, and melody changes. And for that it's never boring. Really, music wise, you could probably compare them to the Prog Metal band, Communic. But as for how to make this band better is to get a better singer. Now I know what he's trying to do, or at least this is what it sounds like to me, and that is sound a bit like Hansi Kursch from Blind Guardian and Demons & Wizards, but he's just not quite there. So why not get Hansi, himself to do vocals for this otherwise great band?

But anyway, how is this album? Awesome really. Probably one of the best debut albums from any band of this genre I have ever heard. Hell, probably any genre at that. Every song is catchy with its different tempo, rhythm, melody changes and all. The musicianship in this band is outstanding. And to be honest, I have all of Manticora's album up through the Black Circus albums, and this album is the only one that I have thoroughly listened to. With so many bands out there these days, I tend to buy up whole catalogs of new bands that I find, but never take the time to listen to everything I buy. It ain't like the old days of a handful of bands and you'd have to wait years for a new record from them. So alot of times, I notice that when I do take the time to listen to one of my many unlistened to album, I find a gem. Manticora's albums are total gems. Just takes a little getting used to the vocals. But fortunately, the majority of the songs are instrumental....not fully instrumental, but the majority of the song is just plain guitar jamming.

I well say that power metal is the type of heavy metal ever. I mean power high scream, kick ass beats, and there so progressive. But what i like is power metal like Iced Earth, demons & Wizards, and Manticora. What I Like About this album and band is how they sound similar to Iced Earth and Demons's & Wizards. Now Why Can't All Power Metal bands be like that!
