virtuoso Mistheria returns with an all star
cast for the neo-classical progressive metal
tour de force “Dragon Fire”. Home to 13
tracks of full on metal pomposity, this is
music crafted around stirring vocal
melodies and impassioned first
class musicianship. The virtuoso meter of
the personnel involved sets a new standard
and fans of artists such as Symphony X, Malmsteen and Artension will find this a
sheer musical delight.
grandiose music on offer has its home within
the classical music masters but the metal
charge brings “Dragon Fire” firmly into the
present day. Yet this is more than musical
virtuosity. Mistheria has taken great care
to produce songs first and foremost with
catchy vocal melodies and big choruses and
just one listen will prove that he has
succeeded in his aim producing captivating
compositions. After demos for the album had
been made the personnel was then hand
selected by Mistheria to bring out the best
in each track with the highest calibre
musicians within the genre chosen to do
justice to his songs.
vocalists comprise of John West (Artension/Royal
Hunt), Rob Rock (Impellitteri/Solo),
Mark Boals (ex Malmsteen/Ring Of
Fire/Royal Hunt), Lance King (Balance
Of Power) and Titta Tani (ex Astra /
Ashent). Each vocalist’s unique style has
been selected for the appropriate track to
deliver Mistheria’s vision. The same process
was used for the guitarists with George
Bellas (solo/Ring Of Fire), Neil Zaza
(solo), Roger Staffelbach (Artension/Angel
Of Eden) and Emir Hot (solo) plying
their virtuoso guitar work which blend
beautifully with Mistheria keyboards to
recreate the classic guitar/keyboard pairing
in all its glory. The bass was ably handled
by Alberto Rigoni (Twinspirits) and
drums come courtesy of John Macaluso
(Ark, TNT, ex Malmsteen) whose performance
is full of high-power heavy grooves and tons
of energy making this one of his best
performances to date.
the number of musicians involved there is an
impressive sense of cohesion to the material
all thanks to the quality of Mistheria’s
initial vision shining through in all
aspects. Even the sound of the album has
produced and mixed to his own personal
taste. Mistheria comments, “Since I only
wrote vocal melodies and lyrics for “Dragon
Fire” and vocal melodies for “Eye of the
storm” songs (although I gave ideas for the
others), all singers involved influenced the
songs prominently with really great lyrics
and melodies. John Macaluso’s job on drums
has been nothing short of astonishing
starting from my programmed drums guideline.
The guitarists moved on my own demo ideas as
well as Alberto Rigoni on bass and their job
has been simply perfect. Ivana Greguric
wrote a song exclusively for the album (The
Beast) and her work is really remarkable”.
