Russian symphonic power metal with some modern influences
Cool artwork from Leo Hao, who's designed stellar covers for the likes of Iced Earth, Blind Guardian, and Saxon. Estate is a Russian power metal band with symphonic elements. The group formed in 2012 and released their first album in 2014. After a four-year wait, the band release their sophomore record via Danish label Mighty Music. Power metal of this variety has just been done to death, but the band is fast enough to warrant attention. The guitar tone has a real modern influence, but build for speed and melody. The album features Mats Leven and Mark Boals as guests on the last two cuts.
