very interesting vocal parts full of emotions.
Following the style of the great “Rhapsody of Fire”, VOA comes back
with an album that is based on the search of a mixture between classic
power metal and that typical epic-symphonic approach that puts in
evidence arranging qualities. The band laso presents the new singer Maxi
Nil that duets with Mario
Plank: The good skills of this couple give an important mark to this
which is supported by good musicians that confirm what was shown
in the previous albums. I’m sure that the band has found its own way for the future.
An important plaudit for the quality and the mood created by many songs; The structure of the songs is based on power metal style but I like the use of keyboard , able to be the plus value of the band; In my personal opinion the use of typical power metal style concerning rhythmic session doesn’t always fit to the whole song’s atmosphere…but this is my very personal opinion.
Due to line up changes, the band can still improve and for me this
album is an important gateway for further developments in particular for
what concerns the whole songs’ atmosphere
that is not always at the top. But surely we
find in "Delta" interesting compositions in which the duets
between the singers deliver very interesting vocal parts full of
emotions; in particular I underline that Maxi's vocals are very
involving ; she’s able to take out a very incredible passion from her
voice…she’s the “winning move” for the band!!!
