EMERALD SUN picture
Thessaloniki, in the northeast of Greece, is the second biggest city of this country in which the enthusiasm for Heavy Metal is boundless. According to this, there are countless fans, clubs, magazines, and of course bands competing for local dominance. Rising from this concrete jungle in 1998: EMERALD SUN. The band had fought its way to the top of the local scene after performing numerous sweaty and impressive shows. In all those years a line-up sharing more than the mutual fondness for music had been consolidated. Singer Jimmy Santrazami, the two guitar players Teo Savage and Johnny Athanasiadi, bass player Fotis "Sheriff" Toumanides, keyboardist Jim Tsakirides and drummer B-Wicked proudly call each other real friends with the ambition to conquer the stages of this world.

In 2003 and 2004 EMERALD SUN released two great demos: "Sword Of Light" and "High In The Sky", which received extremely euphoric reviews in

The first thing that made me attracted to "Regeneration" is that freakingly majestic cover, the blazing character reminds me of unit Archon from StarCraft, but what was looking good and promising on the front cover wasn't balanced out with what you'll get inside. To compete in the power metal realm, things now ain’t easy as it was in the early 90s. Double-bass drumming, thunderous picking, and high pitch vocals have became generic patented formula that if you merely repeat this, you'll suffer with unoriginal composition and fans could get bored easily as they've heard this thousand times before. I'm afraid, "Regeneration" felt into this category.

"We Won't Fall" and "Theater of Pain" will make you remember the glorious days of Helloween or Edguy, where the speed and melodies are the key. "Where Angels Fly" tunes down the tempo, good track but if only the chorus is bigger. "Starchild" now reminds me a lot of classic Gamma Ray, the verse is beautiful but the sloppy chorus pulls down the whole song to anti-climax. "Speak of The Devil" and "Planet Metal" are both classic Euro power metal executed perfectly but "Chasing The Wind" is a dreadful filler ballad that should be left out. "Fantasmagoria" is actually pretty good, considering this epic is full of variation and the alternate vocals cover all range, but squeezing this into 7 or 8 minutes will be much better as they can skip some repetitive moment and wrap only the essential pieces together.

The change of vocal duty from Santrazami to Tsakirides proved to be effective as the new singer's quality is applauding and he has a huge range to exploit. The real problem is the uninventive approach of their offering. There's a strong reason why Edguy, Stratovarius, and Helloween's newer musical style is quite different because they needed a change and seems that the classic sound started to became outdated. However, if you prefer the old school style of the 80s decade, "Regeneration" is a good shot, otherwise, let's wait for an evolution in their next release.
