Fugatta: The Darkest Planet

A power metal band now on to their third album, Fugatta hail from Mexico but look to mainland Europe for much of their inspiration; their symphonic, fast-paced numbers replete with plenty of guitar and keyboard solo action show strong inspiration from the likes of Stratovarius and Sonata Arctica, with nods to Kamelot and Sabaton here and there too. Whilst the material is generally in the lighter area of the power metal genre, the band are not adverse to some heaviness on occasions, such as on “Sons of Syria” which perhaps unsurprisingly incorporates some middle eastern sounds. Vocalist Daniel Viña’s accented delivery won’t be to everyone’s taste, and could at times do with some more, well, power, but it doesn’t detract from what is a generally decent set of songs. No prizes for originality then, but if you are in to this type of power metal then you could do worse than check this out.
