Masters Of Sin

Sarissa - Masters Of Sin - 2004 - Black Lotus
Sarissa is a trio from Greece, who got their start as a typical metal band in the mid-80's. After a revolving lineup, they trimmed down the membership and garnered a sound that some bands require 4 or 5 members to master. While some may call it 'Greek fantasy metal,' based on the subject matter and near-operatic intros, closer examination reveals more. The blend of symphonic and progressive elements propel the sound to a level beyond some of their more 'cheestastic' counterparts.
Fans of talents ranging anywhere from Kamelot to Edguy to Evergrey would feel quite comfortable with adding this cd to their collections. With only three albums to their credit since their conception, it would be easy to dismiss these guys as 'lightweights' in the overall scheme of metal madness, but if you place quality over quantity, to not check these guys out would be unfortunate, indeed.
I give this one 4 flaming codpieces out of 5.
