a_new_symphony_for_himFounded in the early 2014 as a Symphonic Metal project, Vocalist Michelle Rodovalho and bassist Matheus Maia orchestrated the Brazilian Symphonic Metal band, Perpetual Legacy. The duo eventually went on recruiting the rest of the members and got guitarist Bruno Souza, keyboardist Rafael Lobo and drummer Gabriel Pedroso joined the ranks. The newly formed group started working on their debutant album, “A New Symphony for Him” which was released in the fall of 2015 under the record label Metal Survivor.

The Band list Epica, Nigthwish and After Forever as some of its influences and is abundantly clear that their music although inspired is crisp and ingenious. The female lead vocals trademarks or rather stereotypes the symphonic metal genre as we know. But the inventive and progressive song arrangements on their debut album clearly adds more flavour to the genre and gives it a new dimension. A very modern yet folk sound is heard on deeper listening. Did I mention the bands love for Jesus Christ? Oh yes this is Christian Symphonic Metal that we are talking about.

The album opens with an instrumental song “Lost In Darkness” as it marks the onset of a spiritual heavy metal ride. It almost sounds like a movie score and closes out to start “Looking For The Endless Light”. The tempo of the album picks up with this song, and we are introduced to the beautiful voice of Michelle, the verses go hand in hand with the guitar chops, the melodic keys that are heard in the background gives the song a very gothic element. Michelle holds her voice well and has a pretty impressive tone. Continue reading »

“The lyrics are about coming out of a bad relationship, and when you’re at the end of your rope, when you’re at the point where you realize something has to change, that you can’t go on living in the situation that you’re in. It’s cool. It’s a very strong song. Continue reading »
