Bloodangel's Cry by Krypteria
Released: Jan 2007
Label: Synergy Records
This is fraulein-fronted Kraut metal so Eurovisionary that "Somebody Save Me" sounds a lot like either Celine Dion or Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time." Also commendably non-thrashy: how the speedier songs roll as much as they rock, and how the opera quotient reaches over-the-top, approaching-Carl-Orff levels in 10-minute closer "At the Gates of Retribution." The Gregorian parts usually feel like mere embellishments, serving an emotional purpose that precludes them wearing out their bombast welcome. All in all: a charming enough sense of cheese to keep the pomp from turning into tedium.
