ARACHNES picture
Arachnes is a progressive metal band from Milan, Italy. They formed back in 1995 when Caruso brothers (Enzo/Vocals and Franco/Guitars) decided to give up their hard-rock project Firehouse in order to start a brand new musical-concept with lots of different influences and more oriented to the virtuoso-approach of guitars and arrangements. Their trade-mark sound originates from an incredibly wide range of influences, going from Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin to Yes, Miles Davis, Bach and Chopin to name a few. The first step in their career was the debut album THE GODDESS TEMPLE, released through the Italian label Lucretia Records in 1997, followed by the mini-CD METAMORPHOSIS, this time on Underground Symphony. After the release of Metamorphosis the band took a break and changed the line-up a few times. New bass and drum players were added and the guys started to search for a new record-label in order to get read more...

ARACHNES Parallel Worlds

Album · 2001 · Power Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

Genre: (progressively inclined) power metal

This certainly is power metal in all its cheesy and pompuous glory. There is no doubt about that. The tone is set with the piano part in the very beginning of the album.

There are the cheesy soft parts, the pompuous neoclassical parts, the high register pseudo-operatic vocals, the epic lyrical themes, the instrument wankery and so on - but all with moderation, and Arachnes never enter into the stereotypical excess of pretentiousness and unintended silliness. That is what makes this album a quite good power metal album and a quite enjoyable listen, and I personally appreciate that there are several sections where you can hear the guitar riffage without it being drowned in epic keyboard effects and lofty choir sections. The power metal elements mostly work very well for me, although there are some keyboards solos here and some epic effects there that sound a bit lame.

In addition to the token power metal elements, Arachnes make use of groovy guitar riffs, speed metal-like figures and other elements that one may not readily associate with power metal. And that adds a certain sense of balance to the album.

I would recommend this album to fans of power metal in general, and specifically to those who do not mind a bit of cheesiness and a bit of heaviness combined. I think that some fans of traditional heavy metal might like it to. I certainly think it is a fine album.
