Animus Liber is my favorite track on In Medias Res. Very good album. Interesting Latin lyrics. Krypteria continue to produce superior music.
of course, Ji-In Cho delivers powerful vocals, as she always does.

This is a five star product.

This is my first review of an album and I'll show you why this from-middle-of-nowhere band was chosen to be my first. For anyone who loves such band as Evanescence, this will be a good album not only to fill up the gap between Evans' 2 albums but also to discover a whole new thing. The album itself shows great efforts of the German - Korean band. It resembles Evans' blockbusting Fallen in some ways maybe in the female vocal) but is not as dark and does have its own flavour as well. The album is no way near exellence (it is something like a debut) but try it and it won't disappoint you. Their music; however, differs from the other woman-fronted rockbands .Of course, any comparison between Krypteria and such band as Nightwish or After Forever sucks. Perhaps they are something nearer to Evanescence (but they are no copycat). The music is based on Gregorian chant and is led impressively by the Korean vocalist Ji-in Cho. Her sound is not so-good but bright and catchy (quite good for any ballad) and I have to admit that she goes live far better than Evans' Amy Lee (though I still love Lee's voice). That's why I regret missing their live concert when they came to my place in June.

1. VICTORIAM SPERAMUS: The first single starts in a good tune, followed by the soft singing and impressive backing vocals. The chorus is not in English but it doesn't matter as long as you can feel the epic atmosphere. A well-arranged piece... 4/5

2. WILL YOU BE THERE FOR ME: starts with some beautiful piano then speeds up in the middle with the blend of drumsbeat and guitar. The chorus is boring. 3.5/5

3. WHY: My most unfavourable track of the album, so plain and boring. The only thing that saves it is the good starting tune that was once used in another song of the band- Liberatio.

"In Medias Res" is the second album by the Germon symphonic metal band Krypteria, and it's their first to feature the spectacularly energetic vocals of South Korean singer Ji-In Cho. As noted by reviewer Lee Wen, this album is a little rough around the edges, but it's definitely worth a listen. Ji-In Cho's voice isn't as strong as that of Amy Lee of Evanescence or Sharon den Adel of Within Temptation, but she has a *lot* of energy, and it works well when combined with the amazing music of the rest of the Krypteria band.

The stand-out track on this album is "You and I", which is a brilliant post-love duet guaranteed to make the listener smile. It features a rather whimsical mix of soaring vocals and stinging simile-laden retorts that requires more than a single listen.

And if you like this album, you *must* get their follow-up album, entitled "Bloodangel's Cry". It features even stronger music and vocals, and it shows that Krypteria is a band with tremendous potential for the future.

This album "In Medias Res" is amazing... It has a blend that is rare, especially singing some words in Latin. The lead singer, Ji-In Cho has a Beautiful, magical, and fresh voice. She is beautiful too. My favorite song is Victoriam Speramus. The albim truly is inspirational, Epic, and Awesome...

First I'm big into metal and I started with Blood Angel's cry so this may skew my review.

This album is decidedly not metal. Yea there are some rocked up songs but they are most certainly more pop than metal.

I read the band bio that they started with a more symphonic pop studio act with multiple guest singers. This would be one of those albums where they are still in that pop/easy listening sort of mood, but they settled on Jo-In Cho as the vocalist.

If you like Liberatio you'll probably like this album. I've noticed that Krypteria seems to do one album that is pretty cheesy that experiments a lot with new music styles and textures, and the following album refines things. Liberatio was pretty much the almost all cheese version of this album. This album has some good tunes mixed in.

I saw someone else likened them to Within Temptation. Not even close.

If you are looking to continue exploring Krypteria's more gothic metal trend check out "My Fatal Kiss".
