Dynamite and heavy music are the only words to describe Bejelit. Supported by 10 years of live experience, the 5-pieces band is now one of the most innovating product in whole Italy. Their hotly follow-up to 2006's album "Age of Wars", "You Die And I..." bring the band into a new listening experience. While maintaining the band's trademark sound, this record weaves muisc, lyrics and artwork togheter into a dense concept that flows from beginning to end.

"It's basically about death, and its meaning through the consciousness of every human kind", says guitarist Sandro Capone, explaining the narrative running through "You Die And I...".

After two well received albums, 2004's "Hellgate" and 2006's "Age Of Wars" this new chapter has a quickly and great response:

"...A winning comeback..." - Metal Maniac "...How do I feel? Enthusiastic!" - EntrateParallele.it "...These guys found their personal trademark!" - HolyMetal.it

In 2010 the band spend most of their time givin' 110% for their fans night after night and then

'Emerge' - Bejelit (7/10)

Power metal is often a hit-or-miss thing for me. Of those bands who have won me over, Italy seems to be a place where many of the style's greatest acts are born. I had never heard of Bejelit before this year, but it's clear that they possess the sort of skill and passion that I usually look for in power metal. Granted, the band does nothing that hasn't already been hear many times before within the European power metal scene, but 'Emerge' stands as a good, if not great demonstration of Bejelit's promise.

Sonata Arctica was the band that kept popping to mind while hearing Bejelit. In fact, there were large sections where I could have been certain that it was Tony Kakko doing vocals here. That is meant in no way to downplay the real vocalist Fabio Privitera, however. As Kakko is among who I consider to be the greatest power metal singers of all time, Privitera's association is all to his benefit. He has a voice here that manages to thrust emotion even into the fastest-paced moments on 'Emerge'. 'We Got The Tragedy' is a brilliant showcase for his vocal acrobatics, and while he remains a technically-rooted vocalist, there is never a dearth of passion in his delivery.

The overall scope of Bejelit's music is highly focused on melody, but there is also a healthy balance of that epic, 'cinematic' feeling that many bands within power metal aim for. I found myself in awe of the album's epic, 'Deep Water'; a piece that manages to take feelings of triumph and melancholy, and fuse it into a grand ten minute journey. Though melodic, Bejelit are very fast-paced, though their sound is never quite challenging nor grinding on the ears. There is a very synth-laden approach here. Though the guitar work of Capone and Pastorino is the guiding light of the composition, there is a symphonic aspect that adds some meat to the sound, though some listeners may find the more optimistic synth parts to fall into cheesy depths.

Even following several highly enjoyed listens, I can't quite shake the Sonata Arctica impression that Bejelit first gave me. The band's ambitious string sections may hint at a way to distinguish themselves in coming years, but I cannot yet say that Bejelit stands out as their own act amongst the crowded power metal realm. With that in mind however, it's not often I hear power metal that nails the songwriting aspect like on 'Emerge'. A very good album, and a band to look out for in the coming months.
