Italy? Got the hint? Exactly: Melodic/symphonic Power Metal, but in case of SIGMA slightly progressive, so not the typical Italo-uniformity.
Even though the first two tracks nearly prove the opposite, the sextet shows some more variety with "Guardians", before they can convince for the first time with "King Of Nightmares". With a classical theme in the middle, you realise the potential of this band, although they fall back into the Italian stereotypes after that. Quite original, though the Eurovision-hymn in "Minded Walls" that takes you completely unawares.
On position number nine, "Mighty Sword" with its good structure is most probably the highlight of the album, also convincing is the cover-version of Michael Sembello's 80s-hit "Maniac" from the movie "Flashdance", although I like SARGANT FURY's version some years back better.
Altogether an album with some light, but also quite some shadows, but for a debut OK and expandable.
