Destiny’s End - Transition

Posted on Monday, October 25, 2010

This band’s well-written and expertly played Power Metal would make Helloween proud, if not for just one small problem: their singer. Hell, I almost like this anyway, but this sissy squealing in 64-part harmonies in his best Rob Halford imitation is simply too much to bear. And that’s a real shame, since musically this is awesome, and would have certainly received a vastly higher rating as an instrumental album, but there are only a handful of people who can sing in this style and not sound completely goofy. To compound the problem, they start this thing off with some very ill-advised “computer voice” samples that stick around throughout the first song. There is a place for goofiness in music, of course, but only when it’s intentional. Please note that the indicated rating reflects the near-perfection of the music - that’s just how much the vocals bring this down.
