5.0 out of 5 stars 2011's BEST METAL RELEASE BY FAR, 20 Sep 2011
This review is from: Blood of the Saints (Audio CD)
I will make this brief. Is this album a bit cheesy ? Well yes. But get over that and what a cracking piece of powerful metal ! The vocals are strong and clear (nothing here for the grunt fans) , the riffs are just stunning throughout. Overall a ripping, rollercoaster ride of well produced good old metal !!

5.0 out of 5 stars IF DIO WERE STILL WRITING NEW STUFF..........., 24 Sep 2009
This review is from: New Revolution (Audio CD)
............. he would not go far wrong if it sounded like this. A really awesome album sort of like you would expect/want modern Dio to sound like. But this guys voice is what really makes it........ ok the uncanny similarity to RJD is there in spades but what a stunning, strong, clear sound this guy chucks out.
Not a weak track on the disc and Bastard Son is a total classic.
Buy this without risk if you are into any sort of metal, old or modern really.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB !!! This must be the best album and the most underated band in this genre., 24 Sep 2009
This review is from: Fallen Sanctuary (Audio CD)
The facts : Serenity are a melodic power metal outfit from Austria. The singer has a strong crisp clear voice. The keyboard and guitar sound amazing and rival anything i have ever heard.

From the start this album kicks. Top tune after top tune. In fact the only slightly weak one on the whole disc is Oceans of Ruby and then thats just my opinion. But for sure the rest are great.

Seriously, buy this if you love melodic metal in the style of Sonata Arctica et al. In fact if SA had released this as a follow up to Silence i reckon they would still be at the very top of everyones tree.

Cant wait for the next one Serenity !!

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER FANTASTIC CONTRIBUTION FROM HELLOWEENS SINGER, 28 July 2001
This review is from: Done By Mirrors (Audio CD)
IF YOU ARE A HELLOWEEN FAN BUY THIS! IF YOU ARE A ROCK FAN BUY THIS! IF YOU JUST WANNA TRY SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT YOU COULD DO WORSE THAN BUY THIS! ANDI DERIS SONG WRITING SKILLS ARE GOING FROM STRENGH TO STRENGH AS EACH YEAR GOES BY AND THIS SOLO EFFORT DOES NOT DISAPPOINT.FROM DIFFERENT LAZY PACED NUMBERS LIKE THE EXCELLENT "CHILD OF MY FEAR" THROUGH MORE FAMILIAR STYLED MID PACED STUFF SUCH AS "FREE" AND "PATIENT" TO A REAL SCORCHER IN "I DONT BELIEVE IN THE GOOD" THIS ALBUM HAS IT ALL. ROCK FANS GIVE IT A GO! IF YOU KNOW ABOUT DERIS YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. IF YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD HIM BEFORE YOU MAY BE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED.
