Biography

The essence of BAL-SAGOTH originally began in the late 1980’s as the idea of vocalist/lyricist Byron Roberts; a high concept project intended to take the form of a symphonic black-death metal band swathed in an elaborate lyrical concept of dark fantasy & science-fiction, inspired by the celebrated style of the grand pulp horror and fantasy literature of the 1930’s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't help but like it October 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Cheesy, maybe. Corny, perhaps. But utterly irresistible. Bal Sagoth's "The Power Cosmic" is a record that never has a boring moment, never lets down, always maintains the same level of intensity and completely satisfies any fan of melodic black metal. If you like the music of Dimmu Borgir, Emperor or Thy Serpent, and also enjoy some recent Power Metal in the vein of Rhapsody, this is for you. Bal Sagoth displays the same kind of high speed, double-bass drummed style, and the epic, symphonic keyboard melodies that can be found on any of the earlier mentioned bands. The difference is that Bal Sagoth doesn't strive for heavy and unholy darkness like its BM peers, but for grandeur and beauty. Instead of trying to plunge you in evil and desperation, they make you feel exultant, joyous. The entire album is like a musical travel, something to expand imagination and hope. That is no to say it is some kind of happy Stratovarius act, not at all. It has all the furious intensity of any evil BM band, but oriented differently. I know there's some people who find Bal Sagoth easy to ridicule because of their heroic-fantasy-sci-fi quality, and I started to listen "Power Cosmic" with prejudice. But it vanished right away. All my scorn melted like butter. For me it was impossible not to go along for the ride, and enjoy each song like a kid who has just discovered metal. I recommend this with all my heart, because I find there's nothing in this album I can say I didn't like. Oh, perhaps most of the vocals keep a James-Earl-Jones-narration style that don't work very much (I would prefer a typical BM shriek), but who cares, with all the astounding music going along with the voice. Hands down, it's the best, most inspiring record I've heard in a long time. Buy it, buy it, buy it.

After recieving the most recent installment of the Bal-Sagoth story I was in supreme awe of The Power Cosmic. For all true epic barbarian warrior king Gods travelling throughout the many dimensions of the multiverse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Of The Best Epic/Fantasy Metal Around August 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've read the other reviews, and yes, it sounds like Darth Vader music, and yes, it has fake trumpets and such. But you know something? This CD is SO FULL of talent, they DON'T NEED real trumpets and stuff. This album is brilliantly done; a masterpiece. It's no where NEAR the level of Metallica and this 'pop metal'...it's far far beyond... If you like fantasy, and you like metal, then LISTEN TO THIS CD. Their release before this, "Battle Magic" (1996/97) is based aruond medieval fantasy, while this one is based around a space/stars theme. Check out BOTH albums...BAL-SAGOTH is fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blodu Ok Jarna! August 3, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It doesn't get any better than this. Bal-Sagoth is utterly unique... A combination of melodic black metal with a backing symphony (Johnny Maudling on keyboards), James Earl Jones-style vocal narrative and lyrics straight out of a Conan novel. It's a fantasy epic set to music, with blaring horns, crunchy guitars, soaring strings, and some of the goblins have singing parts.

3.0 out of 5 stars slightly corny, but not bad at all October 20, 2002
By silenus
Format:Audio CD
yes, this album is a bit corny. if that turns you off completely, stop here. if you think you might be able to live with it, then to you i submit this simple review. this album is a collection of songs often well connected that tell some sort of story about conflicts between gods and the like. the music itself has a baroque-ish feel to it. there are many synthesized parts that support strong melodic lines and weave in and out of the main focus. the music here is competently written, comprehensible and ambitious. they do fall short at times of their intended goal, but such tracks as 'callisto rising' and the 'empyreal lexicon' prove their competence; one might almost consider them somewhat "prog-ish" in approach here. the technical proficiency is not spectacular anywhere, nor is the singing (james earl jones style narration and some black metal screeches) but rather it is clear, clean and professional. a fine album overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power Cosmic March 3, 2006
By Metal
Format:Audio CD
Ignore the one-star reviews lisen to he 'useful' 5 star reviews. Although this is quite cheesy, it's an extremely clever storyline, about heroes and such. The keyboards comtemplate with the drumming perfectly. The guitars are heavy and the symphonics are amazing. Music-wise, this album is great.

Yes this IS a concept album telling a story! You can't give it 1 star because of the lyrics. Half the time with black/death metal songs you can't even tell what the lyrics are, because of the shrieking/growling. The story is not a main priority compared to the music. I wouldn't class Bal-Sagoth as black metal band; melodic/symphonic black maybe, but besides the occasional shrieking there are no Satanic lyrics. It's better off classed as 'Melodic death metal.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of The Best March 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Don't disrespect Bal Sagoth.. this and Battle Magic are their two best albums, and are unlike anything any other band that I've heard has ever done. Musically they are very tight, the rhythm guitars and drumming in particular are very impressive, and the horn sounding keys set a mood unlike any other. The Professor Xavier vocals may take some time to get used to, but I think they are cool.. very unique.
