Rockmusicraider Newsflash - Degrees of Truth - The Reins of Life - Album CoverOkay, fire up your cauldron. Add a mighty dose of the early personification of Within Temptation with an equal measure of early Nightwish. Then add some age-old Styx flavored electronics to it without disintegrating into Amaranthe-esque antics. Boil and stir well. This will about get you the style you find on the début album The Reins of Life – signed to Underground Symphony – of the Italian band Degrees of Truth. But in truth (no pun intended), the above oversimplifies their offering greatly. The band describes their style as Progressive Symphonic Metal and I would agree.

At times suffering from a somewhat breathless lengthiness and a slightly overdone sense of drama, this album is nevertheless an impressive feat for a début.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
