Orenda biography
ORENDA is a progressive metal band from Rouen/Haute-Normandie, France consisting of Stéphane Coubray (keyboards, vocals), Anthony Lefebvre (vocals), Raphael Léger (drums, vocals), Cédrick Saulnier (guitars, vocals), and Juliene Estève (bass, vocals). ORENDA was created in 1998 at the University of Rouen as a DREAM THEATER cover band. The band started to work on original compositions in September of 2000 but was severely delayed to a serious car accident in February of 2002.

In August of 2005, the band started recording their debut album "A Tale Of A Tortured Soul" which was released on Musea in February of 2008. "A Tale Of A Tortured Soul" is a concept album with nine songs, but is intended to be one piece.

WHY THIS BAND IS IN THE ARCHIVES:

ORENDA is keyboard driven progressive metal similar to DREAM THEATER, SYMPHONY X and SHADOW GALLERY, but also includes some of the darker atmospheres of PAIN OF SALVATION. They concentrate on melodic vocal harmonies, instrumental virtuosity, guitar and synthesizer interplay, powerful riffs, and include nice acoustic sequences. They were approved by the Prog Metal Team and are highly recommended.

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars At times an intriguing debut album by this French outfit; and one with promice for the future.

In this first incarnation there's still a few beginner's symptoms showing through though; and the first and foremost to this is that this band gets too close to what appears to be a main influence for them in expression. On regular intervals the band sounds like Dream Theater rather than just inspired by them; where vocals and instruments alike seemingly does a copy/paste job of sound, expression and stylistic expression alike.

In other words: We're dealing with yet another band exploring vintage-sounding progressive metal. They are good players, the vocalist very good in a LaBrie kind of manner; and the performance is pretty flawless overall. The album is one long concept story broken into more or less logical segments. The concept itself may not be to everybody's taste; dealing with demons, God and humanity - and a tortured soul touching each of the afflicted parts.

Still - if concept albums in general are of interest it's a nice enough venture - in particular if you can't enough of bands exploring the same musical territories as Dream Theater did in the early 90's.

Thanks to Plankowner for the artist addition.
