WINTER’S VERGE – THE BALLAD OF JAMES TIG ( Review by Varg The Mighty )

Today’s review is of Cyprian Power Metal band Winter’s Verge’s new album.
Taking a completely symphonic approach with the aid of an orchestra, on this album you may find songs that have numerous twists and display a wide range of emotions without absconding the glory of Power Metal. You may find very epic songs in the style of Running Wild or Grave Digger like “A Thousand Souls” or “I Accept”, sentimental although slightly too long ballads like “Timeless” or more classic, spine-chilling Power Metal songs like “Blood On The Foam”.
Overall, the concept of the album is highly nautical, as if Blind Guardian or Stratovarius were to make an album about pirates. Besides the veteran and talented composition of the songs, the symphonic background that sometimes steps into the front is also perfectly written to accompany the main instruments. While mostly these songs display great musicianship and are pretty memorable, some tracks are less interesting and could’ve been shortened or omitted to reach perfection.I recommend this album to fans of Power Metal, Pirate Metal and Symphonic Metal.
My rating is of 9/10.
