AURIUM “The Second Sun”

“The Second Sun”
(Art Gates Records)

Battle Helm Rating

I love symphonic, orchestral and atmospheric metal as much as I love traditional heavy metal. This band from Belgrade are new to me, as is most bands from Serbia. But I do know that there are tons of cool bands from that area of Europe that don’t get the attention that they deserve. So it is nice to shed some light on that part of Europe too. Not being familiar with this band I honestly didn’t know what to think of it. And as I listened it left me with a mixed impression. At times this is bloody awesome, at other times it leaves me with an Oh-feeling. Perhaps not as grand and bold as I would have liked, this still works for me. I guess this is one of these albums that need time to grow on me. It is not a bad album. Perhaps I shouldn’t have listened to “Velvet Darkness They Fear” before I reviewed this album. Anders Ekdahl
