Celesty - Reign Of Elements
Oh, another Happy Metal hour! CELESTY is the band who wants to stand the legions of faceless EDGUY/HELLOWEEN/STRATOVARIUS-clones! So they can, if the fans will see it like me. In princible, CELESTY are not worse compared with SONATA ARCTICA and ARTHEMIS.

The eight songs plus intro can convince altogether and they don't sound like children songs! Kimmo Perämäki, the singer, can not only convince in higher pitches, no, he is also able to sing in more deeper spheres, that fits the band perfectly. And you won't be nerved by the obligatory Yngwie sound. Ok, it's also there but not as gruel as it is with 90% other Scandinavian/Italian acts! Also the keys are smartly-arranged and they are well-integrated into the whole sound.

Fans of STRATOVARIUS and EDGUY should buy this record because lately, there hadn't been many great genre albums, which can compete with CELESTY. (Online December 11, 2002)
