Review

The Epiphany is the debut from Symphonic metal band X Opus, the mastermind behind this neoclassical album is multi instrumentalist James Williams who composed and played/programmed all the instruments on The Epiphany. He´s joined by the two singers Brian Dixon and David Crocker, both with voices that are reminiscent of operatic metal frontmen like Geoff Tate, Rob Halford and James LaBrie. It´s a very well performed album where the music goes in the same vein as Symphony X, Yngwie Malmsteen and Royal Hunt. Williams is a truly wonderful guitarist who lifts the songs that in times feel a bit predictable, I think the album gets better for every time I listen to it. You can always get used to liking the songs whenever the instrumentation is this great.
