Sonata ArcticaWinterheart's Guild

2003

Spinefarm Records
ID: SPI172CD

Melodic Speed Power Metal

This Stratovarius clone probably outgrows its fathers. The music is totally Stratovarius, but after the last Stratovarius album Sonata Arctica sounded better than Stratovarius, over and above Sonata Arctica uses Axxis melodic elements, so this album is very good.

Sonata ArcticaReckoning Night

2004

Nuclear Blast
ID: irond cd 04-906

Melodic Speed Power Metal

I'm surprised but at last this band can do something interesting for me. Of course, Stratovarius + Nightwish is still the main way for this band, but there are some very nice tunes and very good arrangements on this album exactly, so I think they can have the future for me.

Sonata ArcticaDon't Say a Word

2004

Nuclear Blast
ID: irond cd 04-871

Melodic Speed Power Metal

It's a single. I don't know what profound changes you can find on this single, everything is the same but there are not so much Stratovarius in their music.

Sonata ArcticaUnia

2007

Nuclear Blast
ID: irond cd 07-1305

Melodic Power Metal

It's a fact, every band which played or still play like Stratovatius now is better than Stratovarius of the last times. But when the band stops to copy another artist and begins to play something else, maybe not very original but without direct 'borrowing' of other musicians' ideas, this band at last has a chance to be interesting. Sonata Arctica already freezes out it!

Sonata ArcticaThe Days of Grays

2009

Nuclear Blast
ID: irond cd 09-1634

Melodic Power Heavy Metal

I forgot again that Sonata Arctica already doesn't play Stratovarius-like music and I was amazed again at their current sound. It's very interesting Melodic Metal, more Heavy than Power with really very interesting songs.

Sonata ArcticaStones Grow Her Name

2012

Nuclear Blast
ID: NB 2861-2

Melodic Heavy Power Metal

Sonata Arctica doesn't change its mind to play melodious Heavy Metal. This album is various, interesting, catchy and even original.

Sonic DebrisVelvet Thorns

2000

DVS Records
ID: cdm 0702-901

experimental Progressive Metal

It's a mess of modern keys, samples and rhythms. It would be original Progressive without them.

Sonic PulsarOut of Place

2005

Mellow Records
ID: mals 207

Progressive Rock

It's a melancholic Progressive, special for 'nothing-but-Progressive', 'Progressive-is-forever' fans. The music is in the borders of standard Prog with the different experimental things.

Sons of LibertyBrush-Fires of the Mind

2010

Century Media Records
ID: 8709-2

Heavy Metal

'Sons of Liberty', the speeches between the songs, what have we got also on the album? Nothing but some fade Heavy Metal with few touches of Iced Earth.

Sons of SeasonsGods of Vermin

2009

Napalm Records
ID: irond cd 09-1603

Melodic Power Heavy Metal

Well, who does play there? Old familiar faces! So the music is also in the borders of already known German Melodic Power/Heavy with some Progressive elements.

Sons of SeasonsMagnisphyricon

2011

Napalm Records
ID: mzr cd 487

Power Speed Progressive Metal

Partially it's Kamelot, dab Iced Earth and even Nevermore. The music is surprisingly various, it's subject not only to the different songs but the vocals also.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsTodeswunsch

1995

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: EFA 01559-2

Folk Darkwave

This album is very close to many medieval Folk bands. This album isn't classic inconsolable Sopor Aeternus, but there are many elements of the future glory on this album.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsThe Inexperienced Spiral Traveller

1997

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: EFA 01676-2

Darkwave

It's the same Sopor, the same Aeternus. It's still the same dying to violins, screams and drum-machine.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsDead Lovers' Sarabande (face 1)

1999

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: EFA 01584-2

Melodic Darkwave

This album is very close to the top of a boundless black sorrow, but not quite. It's a prelude to the next album...

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsDead Lovers' Sarabande (face 2)

1999

Apocalyptic Vision 

Melodic Darkwave

This is the top of Sopor Aeternus works in my opinion at this date. To say it's a sad music it's to say nothing. It's an inconsolable sorrow, close the eyes and you're welcome to dying...

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsSongs from the Inverted Womb

2000

Apocalyptic Vision 

Melodic Darkwave

I think it's an epilogue for Dead Lovers' Sarabande, it's a sanctus with free spirit crying and the infernal memento mori with sum of everything up.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsEs Reiten die Toten So Schnell

2003

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: EFA 01581-2

Melodic Darkwave

I'll not describe for the hundredth time what they play. I'll say that music became faster and more active, there is no heart-rending crying and funeral here anymore. Everything else is the same as usual plus not bad melodies and worthy selection of musical instruments.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsIch Töte Mich Jedesmal Aufs Neue...

1994

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: irond cd 04-818

Melodic

It's collection of demos, the music is from new wave pop to classic Sopor Aeternus sound. Yes, there are some very good tracks but in general it's trendy raw demos with many pop keys.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsLe Chambre d'Echo - Where the Dead Birds Sing

2004

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: irond cd 04-829

Pop Melodic

It's some terrible travesty of classic sad Sopor Aeternus, I don't know what the revelry Anna-Varney makes, but these are perverted vocals and music, many very trendy keys, it's just Depeche Mode, Space (old French band), Erasure or something else like these pop bands.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsVoyager - The Jugglers of Jusa

1997

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: irond cd 08-1517

Melodic Darkwave

It's reissued EP with another tracklist than on original EP. Almost all tracks are remixed songs and already known.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsFlowers in Formaldehyde

2004

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: irond cd 08-1514

Melodic Darkwave

It's another mini album. It seem to me all those Sopor Aeternus EPs that I've got are more melodic semi-Folk than semi-funeral music.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsLes Fleurs du Mal - Die Blumen des Bösen

2007

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: irond cd 08-1516

Melodic Folk

I don't know it's just a passing fancy of such sound but I like this not 'classic' crying-mourning Sopor Aeternus. It's closer to very melodious Folk with the excellent arrangements.

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of ShadowsSanatorium Altrosa (Musical Therapy for Spiritual Dysfunction)

2008

Apocalyptic Vision
ID: irond cd 08-1518

Melodic Folk Darkwave

It's another EP which belongs to the time of Les Fleurs du Mal album. So the music follows that excellent way which we have on Sopor Aeternus 2007 album.

SorceryEternity

1998

Arise Records
ID: ARISE 011

Melodic Speed Power Metal

It's so typical and ordinary music so I have nothing to say. There is nothing special, not even to say original there at all.

Sore PlexusVisual aGNosia

1997

demo 

Progressive Power Metal

I don't know if it is Prog or Power mostly on this demo. In general, it's experimental music with all Prog attributes, but it's winded with Power that appeared during all this album, so... Anyway, it wasn't a copy of the other bands, they followed their own way. Their singer with his interesting vibrating voice impressed me greatly.

Sorrowful WindsThe Age of Dreams

2001

NMC Music
ID: NMC012

Melodic Heavy Progressive Metal

How many Greeks flow away and nobody knows these men... This album unites good melodious Heavy and Prog in uncertain style. It's usual for Greeks that the guitar work and the tunes are above the others. A vocalist sometimes reminds me of Jeoff Tate.

SortilegeMetamorphose

1984

Axe Killer
ID: 3025462

Heavy Speed Power Metal

It's a great French Metal, the music is melodious enough, strong enough, original enough. A singer sounds excellent, he's a expert at Metal vocals of 80s.

SortilegeSortilege

1983

Rave-On
ID: 3025452

Heavy Power Metal

Everything is in French, and it is good. Again, it is the beginning of the 80s, and the music is so beautiful and heavy. A bit of Iron Maiden influnece, but much faster and heavier. The singer has very strong voice.

SortilegeLames de Heros

1986

Axe Killer
ID: SPV 04-7557

Melodic Heavy Power Metal

Though I prefer Sortilege in native French language (this one is in English edition), this album can't run away from you, because this is another excellent work of French Metal masters! Almost all songs are very memorable with the superb ballads.
