MyrathLegacy_4e7Sometimes starting a cover band as teenagers leads to something much bigger.  Myrath, which means “Legacy”, started out as a cover band in their teen years in France and Tunisia, playing mostly death metal covers to start, then Symphony X covers.  The band released an ep in 2005 and in 2006 opened up for Robert Plant and Adagio, eventually leading to the Kevin Codfert of Adagio becoming producer for the band.  Their first album Hope was released in France in 2007 and was well received by critics.  Their second album Desert Call, was released on BIS Records in France, and American Nightmare Records in the US, both of which have ties to Sony distribution and helped introduce the band to a wider audience.  Tales of the Sands (2011) further increased the status of the band and gained the band opening slots for Dream Theater, HIM, WASP, Orphaned Land and Tarja as the band toured the world.  As Legacy comes out the band will be touring Europe opening up for Symphony X and is looking to arrange tours in North America, Asia, and the Middle East.

“Jasmin” opens up the album sounding much like something straight out of a Middle Eastern adventure movie and the symphonic elements blend right into the beginning of “Believer”, which also manages to retain the middle eastern flavor for a while.  For those uninitiated in the sounds of Myrath, they are often described as “Oriental Metal” or something similar.  Personally, that doesn’t really help me very much, so in my view I hear them as symphonic power metal with middle eastern elements.  In general, there is a very high level of orchestration that provides an epic feel to the songs, which tend to build into soaring choruses all backed by a power metal rhythm section.  Continue reading »
