An album that I think you all should at least try to hear - even if it's only the once.

You probably all know of my intense dislike for the bios that come with most promos these days, nine times out of ten they are just a waste of a tree's life and leave you scratching your head as to who writes the drivel contained in them. So when I read that Black Fate, a band formed in 1990 in Larissa Greece, played music that was a mixture of Kamelot and 'Flow' era Conception, I of course took said info with a large pinch of salt. Wonderfully however, this time the information seems to have been right on the nose and BF have indeed come up with an album that does remind you of those bands.

This comparison is really helped out by the fact that BF's vocalist Vasilis Georgiou sounds uncannily, at times, like Roy Khan and whose performance and contribution throughout this superb album is immeasurable. Thankfully for us, the rest of BF (Gus Drax guitars, Vasilis Liakos bass, Nikos Tsintzilonis drums) are also brilliant at what they do and the music they have created together made me want to play it again and again.

'Rhyme Of A False Orchestra' starts the proceedings and with its subtle nature and clever use of guitars and vocals, this one song sets out the band's proverbial musical wares. This intriguing beginning helps to portray a band who have lots of depth and passion running throughout their music and cuts like 'Lines In The Sand', 'The Game Of Illusion', the beautiful 'Into The Night' (which starts with a stunning vocal melody, that soon turns into a riff and hook that stays long after its finished playing), 'Perfect Crime' and the dark edged 'Weight Of The World' all closely follow this winning start. The intensity, musicality and class which you can hear in the interplay between the musician's just oozes from every pore of this recording and this makes sure that you are completely hypnotized until the last note of the album has faded.

Black Fate with 'Between Visions & Lies' have an album on their hands that could open a lot of doors for them. it's the kind of release you hear every now and then, one that just blows you away and it's also an album that I think you all should at least try to hear - even if it's only the once.
