This is the third album of this Cypriot metal band. ARRAYAN PATH were formed back in 1997 and released two demos in 1999 and in 2000. They released their first album back in 2005 through Steel Gallery Records and their second album last year through Pitch Black Records. After their second album they decided to change their name a bit and instead of ARRYAN PATH they now call themselves ARRAYAN PATH. The core of the band are the Leptos brothers. Nicolas Leptos is the mainman of the band and he is a really great vocalist! The bass is now played by Vagelis Maranis (ex-SANVOISEN) who also did the production of the album which is really good by the way. The cover of the album is also really interesting! “Ira Imperium” is really good and I really enjoyed it!! Their style, for those who don’t know them, is power metal with some epic touches. Their lyrics have to do mainly with history and mythology. Musically speaking the album is generally good but the songs that I enjoyed the most were “Dies Irae”, “Gnosis of Prometheus”, “Kiss of Kali”, and “77 Days till Doomsday”. The album is a must for all the fans of this metal genre and of course for all the fans of the band!! A really good comeback!!
P.S. The previous album of the band was nominated for IMPALA’s European Independent Album of the Year Award!!
