4 stars Nice and interesting guitar album. "The Dark Chapter" provides many fantastic solos, arpeggios, e.g. "Masque of the Red Death" and also nice keyboard parts, e.g. "Noit Al Ever".

During the solos you can already notice Michael Romeo's usual techniques, such as string skipping, arpeggios², tapping and neoclassical sequences but also some asian influenced licks. Mostly there are fast shreds, slowing down several times and also heavy riffs and chords structures, typical for power metal.

The drumcomputer always supports that very well, but sound too much like a computer for me, what is a pity. Sometimes I feel reminded of Symphony X, nothing amazing, considering this was the cornerstone for the career of Symphony X.

If you like Symphony X or guitarists like Yngwie Malmsteen or Rustly Cooley, you might like this. If you like guitars, give it a try, it's a nice guitar album, although the sound is a bit bad!

W.Chuck | 4/5 |
