The Chronicles Of Israfel
A Trillion Lights, Tome II
Company: Independent
Release: 2016
Genre: Progressive
Reviewer: David Loveless
Published: 4/9/2017

Brilliant progressive metal from former Pulse Ultra guitarist!
COMMENTS:
It's been nine years since The Chronicles Of Israfel debuted with the amazing Starborn, Tome I. Finally the wait for their sophomore album is over and the wait was well worth it. A Trillion Lights, Tome II is edgier, heavier, has a strong d'jent influence and is overall stronger than Starborn--something that I didn't think was possible. Dominic Cifarelli has really stepped up his game and delivered an album full of excellent songs. I just hope we don't have to wait another nine years for Tome III. However, if we do, A Trillion Lights is strong enough to tide us over until then. If you're a fan of progressive d'jent, please support this amazing band!
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Progressive d'jent, Symphony X, Pulse Ultra
