The new studio album "Purgatory" of Canadian Power Metal band BOREALIS will be released on June 19th 2015 via AFM Records.
Canada is not really known for producing high-class melodic metal. Here’s one of the few exceptions: BOREALIS from Ontario!
So far this young and talented band may mostly be known to insiders and a smaller but devoted fanbase, but their new (3rd) album “Purgatory” proves that BOREALIS belong to the best newer bands in the power metal genre. After the self-released “World Of Silence” (2008) and 2011’s “Fall From Grace” (Lion Music/Hydrant Music), now with “Purgatory” the band reaches a whole new level. Their surprisingly high recognition value not only comes from the tasteful instrumentations but also from Matt Marinelli’s expressive voice which elegantly guides through the twelve songs on “Purgatory”. BOREALIS create atmospheric depth like only few others are able to do.
Their partly quite modern guitar riffs merge with classic power metal, progressive elements and a symphonic touch, to build a heavy and intense, yet melodic sound which fans of bands like Evergrey, Kamelot and Nocturnal Rites will embrace to the fullest.
