3.0 out of 5 stars A promising taster of more to come..., 23 Feb. 2009
This review is from: River of Tuoni (Audio CD)
Amberian Dawn, despite having members from previous bands, are still quite young as far as bands go. Their style in this album is similar to Nightwish, After Forever, Epica and other Symphonic Metal bands.

I will explain:

If you are a massive fan of Nightwish and you're looking for some similar music to listen to, I wouldn't recommend this album that highly. You will be disappointed as Nightwish and other big symphonic bands have almost exactly the same sound but do it much better.

However, if you are a fan of Symphonic Metal as a genre, if you get excited or inspired by hearing a promising new band on the scene, then go for it. You'll love this album and this band! In River Of Tuoni, you can clearly hear some Amberian Dawn's own style coming out even though it is only their first release. Tuomas Seppälä writes some pretty awesome guitar riffs, and Heidi Parviainen, though sounding a bit raw in places, has a very good voice, although I personally feel she doesn't really use it to it's full potential in this album.

River Of Tuoni sounds great - any band would be very pleased to have created something this good as their first offering!

All in all, a very promising young band. (Also very friendly people too) Definitely worth hearing if you like Symphonic Metal, and I feel one to look out for in the future...
