5.0 out of 5 stars Melodic power metal galore 13 Sep 2009
By JoViGo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first cd from the fully fledged Krypteria in its current form with Ji-In cho as lead vocalist(not to be confused with with the CD Liberatio which I have already reviewed)and what we have is a well crafted body of power metal par excellence.

It is immediately likeable with catchy rhythms,great harmonies,solid guitar riffs,superb lyrics, great keyboard / piano work & a phenominally well crafted backing from a choir that sings in latin & an orchestra whose talents together take the overall sound of Krypteria and turn it into a huge, imposing, dramatic spectacle of symphonic melodic rock.

The motif for each song is varied & contrast very nicely through the whole CD, we have interesting variations from ground stamping air thumping anthemic pieces to more gentle challenging introspective tracks that show off Ji-In Cho voice very well. Her voice can go from all out rock goddess to delicate choral in the tracks on this CD without sounding sacharine in the slightest. She has a well controlled powerful voice that holds great depth & strength without loosing any delicasey.

The tracks are all instantly likeable, some deeply emotional, some deeply provocative & questioning, some are shamelessly life affirming & spiritual in essence all are beautifully orchestrated & supported. The one thing that you can take away from this & that all have in commomn is that they will pretty much have you trying to sing along with them.

This is definately one piece of work that you should turn the lights down for sit back & enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Melodic 31 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
Although Amazon list the release as 2009, this album actually dates from 2005 and preceded Blood Angel's Cry. It's more pop/rock orientated as opposed to the rock/metal style of BAC. However I found it a very pleasant album to listen too, lots of "big" sound, pounding instrumentals and keyboards and a fair bit of choral sound. Quite a few quiet romantic ballads and one that is a kind of "War of the Roses" duelling duet between the male and female singer (probably the weakest track on the album).

If you want the heavy bassy riffs of BAC they are all but absent here but in some respects the album is better for it and well worth a spin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ji-In Cho-Carol Of The Bells- 21 Jan 2009
By Shiloh Kremer - Published on Amazon.com

Born December 30, 1976 (1976-12-30) (age 32)
Origin Germany
Instrument(s) Vocals, piano, violin
Years active 2003 - present

Animus Liber is my favorite track on In Medias Res. Very good album. Interesting Latin lyrics. Krypteria continue to produce superior music.
of course, Ji-In Cho delivers powerful vocals, as she always does.

This is a five star product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting!!! 5 July 2006
By Lee Wen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is my first review of an album and I'll show you why this from-middle-of-nowhere band was chosen to be my first. For anyone who loves such band as Evanescence, this will be a good album not only to fill up the gap between Evans' 2 albums but also to discover a whole new thing. The album itself shows great efforts of the German - Korean band. It resembles Evans' blockbusting Fallen in some ways maybe in the female vocal) but is not as dark and does have its own flavour as well. The album is no way near exellence (it is something like a debut) but try it and it won't disappoint you. Their music; however, differs from the other woman-fronted rockbands .Of course, any comparison between Krypteria and such band as Nightwish or After Forever sucks. Perhaps they are something nearer to Evanescence (but they are no copycat). The music is based on Gregorian chant and is led impressively by the Korean vocalist Ji-in Cho. Her sound is not so-good but bright and catchy (quite good for any ballad) and I have to admit that she goes live far better than Evans' Amy Lee (though I still love Lee's voice). That's why I regret missing their live concert when they came to my place in June.

1. VICTORIAM SPERAMUS: The first single starts in a good tune, followed by the soft singing and impressive backing vocals. The chorus is not in English but it doesn't matter as long as you can feel the epic atmosphere. A well-arranged piece... 4/5

2. WILL YOU BE THERE FOR ME: starts with some beautiful piano then speeds up in the middle with the blend of drumsbeat and guitar. The chorus is boring. 3.5/5

3. WHY: My most unfavourable track of the album, so plain and boring. The only thing that saves it is the good starting tune that was once used in another song of the band- Liberatio. 3/5

4. NO MORE LIES: begins more powerfully. The vocal has improves a lot ( compared to the first 3 songs). 3.5/5

5.QUAE LAETITIA: I don't understand this semi-ballad's name and the chorus, yet this is the best song on the disc. Try it and you'll have a reason to buy this album. It flows with the hauntingly beautiful melody. The nicely written lyric is full of imagination and also adds excitement. It's a REAL theme!!! 5/5

6. ALWAYS AND FOREVER: Soft vocal and nothing more... An average track.3/5

7. CONCORDIA: Another highlight of the album. The piano blends well with the bright vocal. The song is about togetherness. Turn off the light or simply close your eyes and let the beautiful melody flow right through you! 5/5

8. SAVE ME: A typical song of this album but with noticeably energetic beginning and pop lyric.

9. ANIMUS LIBER: A haunting ballad, one of my favourite, deep lyric and pale melody, pleasant to listen to. 4/5

10. YOU & I: A duel between Ji-in and a strong dark masculine voice (the guitarist, I guess). The lyric makes good sense and there is a smart reverse between the two vocals. The whole song bring something atmospheric. 4.5/5

11. GOING MY WAY: A goodie puppie song, feels like Britney getting up in Goth style. Funny to listen to. 4/5

12. THE TEARS I CRY: A catchy ballad, not so original but good enough. 3.5/5

13. CAROL OF THE BELLS: A nice piano performance of Ji-in. Cool and enigmatic. 4.5/5

14. VICTORIAM SPERAMUS (bonusvideo): A shorter and better version... 4/5

15. GET THE HELL OUT OF MY WAY (live): The tracks shows how well Ji-in can go live. Her vocal part is even better than those of the studio tracks. A powerful song with interesting lyric. 4.5/5

Overall: 4 stars. Krypteria is on a good ground to blast!

This album "In Medias Res" is amazing... It has a blend that is rare, especially singing some words in Latin. The lead singer, Ji-In Cho has a Beautiful, magical, and fresh voice. She is beautiful too. My favorite song is Victoriam Speramus. The albim truly is inspirational, Epic, and Awesome...
4.0 out of 5 stars A solid symphonic metal effort from Korea and Germany 27 April 2008
By Brian Lindholm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"In Medias Res" is the second album by the Germon symphonic metal band Krypteria, and it's their first to feature the spectacularly energetic vocals of South Korean singer Ji-In Cho. As noted by reviewer Lee Wen, this album is a little rough around the edges, but it's definitely worth a listen. Ji-In Cho's voice isn't as strong as that of Amy Lee of Evanescence or Sharon den Adel of Within Temptation, but she has a *lot* of energy, and it works well when combined with the amazing music of the rest of the Krypteria band.

The stand-out track on this album is "You and I", which is a brilliant post-love duet guaranteed to make the listener smile. It features a rather whimsical mix of soaring vocals and stinging simile-laden retorts that requires more than a single listen.

And if you like this album, you *must* get their follow-up album, entitled "Bloodangel's Cry". It features even stronger music and vocals, and it shows that Krypteria is a band with tremendous potential for the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Krypteria Pop 12 Mar 2010
By MO - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First I'm big into metal and I started with Blood Angel's cry so this may skew my review.

This album is decidedly not metal. Yea there are some rocked up songs but they are most certainly more pop than metal.

I read the band bio that they started with a more symphonic pop studio act with multiple guest singers. This would be one of those albums where they are still in that pop/easy listening sort of mood, but they settled on Jo-In Cho as the vocalist.

If you like Liberatio you'll probably like this album. I've noticed that Krypteria seems to do one album that is pretty cheesy that experiments a lot with new music styles and textures, and the following album refines things. Liberatio was pretty much the almost all cheese version of this album. This album has some good tunes mixed in.

I saw someone else likened them to Within Temptation. Not even close.

If you are looking to continue exploring Krypteria's more gothic metal trend check out "My Fatal Kiss".
