Description/Reviews
Elvaron makes progressive rock music with trash and metal influences. Melodic, but with witty riffs. I was wondering how the music on this album would evolve with the use of those lyrics. Eight songs with a length between 3 and 15 minutes, a total of one hour of music.
The album starts with The Journey Within, on which Li puts his stamp with a classical piano overture. After a minute the song starts and we hear the essential Elvaron elements: incisive guitars and prog-like keys, a nice bass and symphonic epic and heroic elements. A perfect instrumental opener of seven minutes.
