Female vocalist Simon Papa can definitely sing, but her high and overly sweet voice is on a constant lullaby level, and also the limited vocals of Marco Strega miss any sort of balls. Very unfortunate, because on an instrumental level, the band manages to strike the right chord on all their strings. Further ahead on the CD we encounter some very interesting songs. Is it enough to make a lasting impression after the CD kind of collapsed unto itself because of the tedious vocals? Not when the toe-curling last song abuses my eardrums with the most horrible guest? MaterDea has some fine ideas and there is definitely some potency in this group.
Alas it is mainly the vocals that do not live up to the level of the rest of the group, and therefore hold back the general level of the whole thing. I enjoyed the pretty music, but this is not an album that will get a prominent spot in the album collection. Maar omwille van muziek is Turijn niet gekend, nochtans is Turijn de bakermat van MaterDea die inmiddels reeds toe zijn aan hun vijfde album. Ze vonden onderdak bij Rockshots Records, niet meteen het meest gekende platenlabel, maar hopelijk een kans op een betere verdeling.
MaterDea is een band die zeker de moeite waard is om bij stil te staan. Basis van de band is zangeres Simon Papa en gitarist Marco Strega. Compositorische en technisch zitten de songs op dit album goed in elkaar. Er wordt o. De enige bedenking die ik heb is bij de stem van Simon: vals wordt er niet gezongen, maar ik heb de indruk dat het zangbereik eerder beperkt is.
En aangezien het om symfonische metal gaat, zou je toch eerder een stem verwachten die wat gevarieerder uitpakt. Maar goed, weten wat je kan en waar je limiet ligt is ook al een verdienste. Hier en daar duiken folky elementen op. Meestal is het rechtdoor na een mooie intro. Soms zitten er mooie tussenstukken in de nummers. Je mag dit gerust een sterk album noemen door de creativiteit en de technische hoogstand. Formed in , these Italian metallers have been pushing out excellent work in the folk scene. What comes off a bit difficult at times is the sweet innocence in the vocals of Simon Papa mixed in with the heavier bits.
The contrast is unique and some might find it tough to get used to. Honestly, it is a bit similar to classic acts like Falconer, so maybe it will not be too difficult to enjoy. The tracks are growing on me!

I am superbly torn. The song progresses into some excellent speedy parts and offers a terrific guitar solo before finally floating back into an acoustic passage, before closing out in epic fashion. Extremely enjoyable. The following track does exactly that! Great work here that must be heard, showcasing excellent transition from mellow to heavier while keeping great consistency.
This is awesome; let us dig into the last few tracks to close out the album. Love the addition of these effects in a few of these tracks.
Also, very refreshing to hear male vocals from Strega starting off this track. It is interesting to me how many bands I have been reviewing and listening to that are out of Italy lately. It appears there is quite a symphonic, Celtic and folk metal culture there that has been off my radar. That has certainly changed this year.
MaterDea has been around since and this is their fifth studio album release, so they are veterans to the industry. It really shows in the quality of the production on the album, especially with so much going on in each song. You have female vocals predominantly, but also male vocals in support and even some children singing background vocals. The amount of different instruments is quite amazing!
We have guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, violins and cello. The band started when vocalist Simon Papa and guitarist Marco Strega collaborated on a Celtic soundtrack for a short movie. From there they started working on writing music and MaterDea was born. The album starts with the track Back To Earth. This song starts with some eerie music and a dire message to the children of earth. The guitars explode in with keyboards in support.
The music has a great feel to it. The guitars and keyboards playing off of each other quite well. She shows such a wide range of singing ability on this opening song. We also have some male vocal in support that fit perfectly into the song.

This six-minute epic has just about everything a song can have. In fact almost all the songs on the album run five to seven minutes.

We also get a great guitar solo in this song. The chorus is very catch as well. It is a great way to start off the album. Neverland is another song that really stood out to me.

Once again we have a bit of an eerie opening. This song is a little softer than Back To Earth. It gives Papa a chance to really showcase her voice. The music in the song, especially in the middle really delivers that Celtic vibe.

I really love that a lot of metal is adding that Celtic sound to their albums. Once again another strong chorus really carries this song. The song actually feels quite lively overall. Legacy Of The Woods is another favorite of mine. The song starts literally with the sounds of being in the woods. It is very relaxing. Papa starts in with her softer vocals and they draw you in to the song. The music is melodic and easy to listen to. Then the guitar starts to slowly build and the song jumps up several notches. Now more of a rock song, with a lot of keyboard to support it.
Once again we also have male vocals that really add to the song before it fades back out to the sounds of the woods. Metamorphosis is another song that really kicks it up. The song moves forward at a nice pace and is just mixed so perfectly between the vocals and all the instruments.

It is another song to me that just feels good to listen to. It is almost what I would call easy listening metal. All the songs are so well done that the flow to them is just perfect. We get treated to another serious guitar solo in this song that I love. As we get to the conclusion of the song it feels like the song has really taken off.
Overall this is a very good album. There is not a lot here that is new to this genre of music, but that is fine because it is so well done. Every part of this album is perfectly executed. The musicians, production, mixing, it just all comes together to make a really good album that you will enjoy listening to for a long time to come. MaterDea is a well-known metal band in pagan and celtic scene.
This new record is surely a step forward, forged in the personal style of MaterDea. It's a powerful symphony where all the instruments and vocals join the sounds of nature, painting new mighty pictures using different colors and complex arrangements. The melodies reveal themselves along with the sumptuous guitar riffs, a powerful rhythmic session and the twist of strings and orchestration, allowing the listener to be carried away in a dimension full of energy, beauty and hope by these magical tales.
Influenced by Genesis, Jethro Tull and Led Zeppelin, their sound is best summarised as neo-classical light power metal. Devised as strong, spiritual music, with fantastical elements, it succeeds in this colourful purpose.
All 7 band members bring classical training to this vibrant sound. Released on 8th May in the UK. Back To Earth — Whale song opens onto a sci-fi-esque, otherworldly narrative, gradually exploding into full pelt metal. Memorably powerful feminine vocals, much in the vein of Lacuna Coil, Nightwish and Delain. A notable fluidity encapsulates the track, holistically, as it ends on another voice-over, extolling love as an immediate and central panacea to all.
