Bas Willemsen has just released his project Alarion with his debut album Waves Of Destruction
It hold some impressive progressive symphonic metal anthems
Irene Jansen (Ayreon) and Damian Wilson (Threshold)! are on full throttle with Bas in total control thruout the whole event.
As the composer he plays vatious instruments such as keys, guitar and bass and also takes care of orchestrations.
Somehow here and there i think the Keys are a bit lame but in othr parts it seems they are struck by lightning.
Many of the guest singers are really great some of which i did not know yet.
The album has got variation and it is very balanced with ballads, powerballads as well as hard hitting metal as well.
There is lots to discover here.
As a whole i think there is still space to grow further as a composer for Bas, but it is absolutely a steady debut release.
