Morifade - Domi<>Nation
As you already have seen it, Power Metal is a style that I really can't stand at all and when I have to listen to such bands as HELLOWEEN, GAMMA RAY or even worse, PRIMAL FEAR, it's a real torture to me. All that to say that I've needed a lot of courage to dare listening to the brand new albums of the Swedish guys from MORIFADE… But all in all, listening to "Domi<>Nation" went quite ok and was way less painful than planned!

I won't say that I'd listen to it again with pleasure or for the fun of it, but I can still say that MORIFADE can play and write really decent tracks. Maybe that's due to the nice keyboards that create a cool atmosphere? Or maybe to the catchy melodies? Or maybe to the good job done on vocal arrangements by Stefan Lundgren (SOBRE NOCTURNE, NECROMICON…) on the track "Clarity (Fragments Of A Dream)"? All that to say that this album is in that genre of very good quality and that the ones who love high and not so virile voices will be pleased! On those positive words, there I'm going for some more good old ENTHRONED, just to destroy my ears a little bit more... (Online January 12, 2004)
