The line up of "Space Odyssey" is also a treat- an all star line up by today's standards featuring the late great bass vituoso Marcel Jacob (ex-"YJM Rising Force", "Talisman") and vocal giant-to-be Nils Patrik Johansson ("Astral Doors", "Lion's Share") along with guitarist Magnus Nilsson and drummer Zoltan Csorsz. The songs are incredibly well developed with a certain progressive essence to them, still nothing too complicated while you get a large amount of melodies and neoclassical scales coming from the keys,guitar and bass. Never the less, it is probably Patrik Johansson's talent and overwhelming vocal attack that steals the show on "Embrace the galaxy", his performance is absolutely devastating with a style that references Dio, Tony Martin and Kal Swan. Favorite tracks include "Emposium", "Despair and pain" and "Embrace the galaxy"
Overall, "Embrace the galaxy" turned out to be a surprising offering by Richard Andersson and co that should rightfully be considered a classic of the neoclassical metal genre. For fans of "Rising force", "Voodoo Circle", "Royal Hunt" and "Silent Force" this is a must!
