3 stars A Perfect Forever is the second full-length studio album by Danish progressive/ power metal act Anubis Gate. The debut full-length studio album Purification (2004) was an enjoyable affair albeit a bit generic, so Iīve been curious to hear if A Perfect Forever adds more unique elements to Anubis Gateīs sound. Like the debut, A Perfect Forever is produced by prolific Danish metal producer Jakob Hansen, who would join Anubis Gate on their next album as their new lead singer. The production is professional and suits the music perfectly.

The music is mostly mid-paced power metal with progressive elements. The songs are well written and the musicianship is excellent. Torben Askholm is a skilled and powerful lead vocalist allthough his voice is not really my cup of tea. But thatīs an aquired taste. A Perfect Forever is definitely a step forward from Purification, but for me the style is still a bit generic and I wouldnīt be able to tell Anubis Gate apart from many other bandīs in the genre if I didnīt know it was them playing. At least not with the music on this album. The music simply lacks originality. If you enjoy well played, well composed and well produced progressive power metal this album is recommendable though and a 3.5 star rating is certainly deserved.

UMUR | 3/5 |
