On Messenger of the Gods, the cast of usual suspects are on board from Lion Music’s roster such as Alex Masi, Marcel Cohen, George Bellas, Anders Johansson, Hubi Meisel, Rob Rock as well as Winterlong’s Thorbjorn Englund”.
As before mentioned, this album is musically balanced between both power and progressive metal, with neoclassical elements throughout. Surprisingly, Mistheria does an excellent job of keyboard playing. Where as he’s not always doing the “look at me” type playing on each song. Yes there’s some keyboard soloing but in tasteful doses. It would be interesting to see this evolve from a project based effort to a solid band effort. I would definitely recommend Messenger Of The Gods to all progressive, power, and neoclassical metal fans.
