Black Fate’s origins go all the way back to 1990 in Larissa, Greece where the original lineup released a couple of demos and started playing shows where they built a following. After a couple of lineup changes and albums, drummer Nikos Tsintzilonis met now current vocalist Vasilis Georgious and the band shifted direction turning to melodic power metal and resulting in the album Deliverance of Soul in 2009. A few more lineup changes later led to Black Fate releasing Between Visons & Lies in 2014 to critical acclaim. Now in 2016, the band has reissued Deliverance of Soul, which was remastered by Erik Tordsson (End Of September) and features new artwork by Jan Yrlund (Apocalyptica, Korpiklaani, Leah).“Deliverance of Soul” track listing
If one didn’t know better, the intro track “Children of Aniramas” sounds a bit like this could be an EDM or techno album, so that was a bit of a surprise to hear as my other exposure to Black Fate was 2014’s Between Visions & Lies. Thankfully, “Dying Freedom” reverts to melodic power metal.
