EMBRACE OF SOULS – The Number Of Destiny (2021)
When you think about classic melodic metal / progressive / power metal, none does it better than Italians. EMBRACE OF SOULS, founded two years ago by experienced musicians in this field and including reputed Rhapsody Of Fire vocalist Giacomo Voli, are among the best mixing those sub-genres.
“The Number Of Destiny” is their new album, featuring some renowned colleagues which are more than ‘guests’ adding their own inprint to the songs, such as Michele Guaitoli (Visions of Atlantis) and Roberto Tiranti (Labyrinth).
What we like about these guys is the ‘traditional’ sound here: there’s some ’80s Malmsteen, some Helloween, some Symphony X, some Jorn, etc, always melodic in that 80s / 90s feeling.
