Review: Reflection – When Shadows Fall [2008]

By Mike SOS

Greek troupe, Reflection, present a classic metal release with When Shadows Fall. Keyboard heavy and operatic, this 12-track’s disc’s tone falls somewhere between the epic strokes Blind Guardian uses and the sonic bombast of Fates Warning, even going so far as to include a full-on orchestral version of “Mistress of Sea,” complete with symphonic instrumentation.

Calling themselves “Hellenic epic/doom metal” is pretty close to the mark, as this veteran act straddles the line between grandiose arrangements and crushing riffs, with the righteous might, necessary to get these songs off the ground.
