Review: Skylark – Divine Gates Part III: The Last Gate [2008]

amazon-skylark1Italian metal troupe Skylark play a rousing version of power metal with symphonic overtones emblazoned with solid female vocals leading the charge on DIVINE GATES PART III: THE LAST GATE. This unit’s 10-track endeavor contains just what you’d expect from a band of their nature, as a bevy of galloping guitars, angelic vocals, and the type of pomp and circumstance necessary for this brand of metal reaches out and effectively tug at the heartstrings while allowing the headbanging to perpetuate. Chances are if you dig Doro or are into Nightwish, songs like “All is Wrong” and “The Scream” will appeal to your pristine metal sensibilities. www.myspace.com/renaissancerecordsusaMike SOS
