DRAKARIUM - DrakariuM (Digipak CD 2015)

"Quebec prog power metallers, DRAKARIUM may be Canada’s best kept Secret!!"

DRAKARIUM'S self-titled EP is an epic power metal gem, that takes us on a journey back in time, and pays homage to the great masters of this genre, such as Stratovarius, Sonata Arctica, HammerFall, and Helloween.

This album has it All for Power Metal fans, with powerful fluid drum and bass sections, beautiful and complex guitar melodies, enchanting keyboard passages, harmonious lyrics and really catchy vocal lines.2
Be mesmerized by the brilliant epic song structures, progressive neoclassical influences, technical instrumental skills, and lightning-fast guitar and keyboard solos.
Their guitar solos are incredibly fast just like Dragonforce and Stratovarius!
Highly recommended For All Fans of the European Power Metal Scene!

Rated in the Top 30 Power Metal Releases of 2015 by Headbangers Latino America Webzine (South America)!
