Azoria: Season's Change

Azoria? Who are they? Well, the band was founded in early 2013 by the band leader and lead-guitarist Alexander Oriz. Oriz is a busy boy having recently participated in both ReinXeed's latest platter and with his own eponymous act Oriz. Bassist Chris David also plays with both the aforementioned acts whilst Simon Jonsson on rhythm guitars has also toured with ReinXeed. Behind the drums we find Emil Eriksson who has played with the band Oriz. Some seriously incestuous stuff there I'm sure you will agree especially when you become aware that the mighty Tommy ReinXeed himself makes a number of appearances as well. Just in case that isn't enough guests for you, Snowy Shaw (previously of, amongst others, Dream Evil and Therion) also turns up!

Stratovarius, Edguy and Helloween alongside Iron Maiden, HammerFall and Gamma Ray are amongst the acts cited by Azoria as influences and Season's Change is an album which wears its influences proudly on its sleeve. Power metal often gets charged with being cheesy and this album won't change that but it does feature excellent songs such as "Inside My Heart" (sung by ReinXeed) and "When You Sleep" sung by Matilda Eriksson is lovely and the title song is typically uplifting. This album won't found the world's foundations but it is entirely satisfactory for fans of the band members.
