These semi-symphonic Italians have many cheesy metal bases covered -- Megadeth-level thrash, Maiden-esque operatics, meaty commercial power metal, Queensryche pomp and circumstance complete with Geoff Tate-style emoting, an almost electro-pop Evanescence-y love-duet ballad ("All in a Moment") where a boy calls a girl "a thousand times a day." They even do a Middle Eastern-guitared cover of "The Look," by Roxette! Between anti-war sentiments and dainty adult-contemporary piano interludes, arrangements get interesting now and then, too -- for instance, when the buzzsaw guitar blows up "Future."
