    Solid power/speed outfit that formed in 1987 and released one more demo and then a Queensryche-sounding CD in 1994. On their first tape they sound melodic yet fast and heavy, with vocals that are on the high side but still hearty and with a taste of that operatic Italian prog metal style. Their playing and arrangements are good, and the clean production (from SubCave Studios in Bologna) gives them a pretty pro vibe. There is some nice riffing and plenty of melodic guitar runs, with the occasional European power metal feel (i.e., updated/heavier traditional metal). The songs range from a power ballad to heavy crunchers. The Euro power metal feel continues on The Bloody Cross, a guitar fest with solid songwriting and strong arrangements that are equally melodic and heavy. The recording, done at Rain Studio, is good, with nice and heavy guitars. Again they go from a quieter song that incorporates tasteful synths to tough speed metal. The high vocals reminds me of Geddy Lee in parts. Mattei went on to Proloud and Beraldi was in Xteria.
