Right whatever they get up to in the wintry dark climes of Scandinavia it certainly doesnít stop the natives churning out some damn fine Melodic Metal. Perhaps itís something to do with the lack of sunlight for a good part of the year but thereís little fault to be found on this three track single. Superbly laid down slices of powerful Melodic Metal THE MYTH OF AUTUMN is very much in the vein of STRATOVARIOS, SONATA ARCTICA and HUMAN FORTRESS with even a tinge of HIM in there for good measure.
What with a excellent singer in Ari Kauppinen and some stellar guitar interplay between Pasi Askolin and Harri Tapani Kauppinen these guys are already committed to making the big time. So it might be as original as putting down lino in your bathroom but that doesnít take anything from the quality on offer here. (Online March 16, 2006)
