Serenity by Kotipelto
Released: Apr 2007
Label: Afm Records
Finnish power metal of the Helloween school, sometimes with riffs almost verging on straightforward rock -- notably in the quite rousing "Dreams and Reality," though "Sleep Well" has guitars kicking off like "Round and Round" by Ratt then turning more Scorpions-like, along with comprehensible lyrics about a lady who needs her rest. "Mr. Know-It-All" has jaunty Jon Lord/Ken Hensley-style Hammond hooks; "Once Upon a Time" is a speedball with old-school operatics as much Uriah Heep as Iron Maiden. And even the obligatory AOR power ballads feel like anthems.
