Even Henning Basse ‘s vocals sounded very similar to Roy Khan ‘s. Sons of Seasons – Gods of Vermin. It’s an interesting track featuring a jazzy piano opening segment, with symphonic, neo-classic and orchestral passages throughout. The entire disc is an experience itself and by the end of it, your appreciation for the musical mind of Oliver Palotai will have gone up in extremes. The fan of old guard melodic grooving after the mold of Threshold find a slightly grittier and meaner variation on said approach in “Soul Symmetry”, whereas the heavier end of the rhythmic prog assault as typified in Symphony X sees a longer offering in “A Nightbird’s Gospel” that even makes time for the bass to do some shredding alongside the keyboard and guitar wizardry. With that said, Oliver Palotai’s creativity is just an amazing phenomenon.
But I found his performance here the most impressive. There is room here for creative keyboard representations as in stealthy, jazzy play of Sanctuary , making the sound practically mischievous. Combining Palotai’s passions for metal, jazz and classical music, ‘Gods of vermin’ was an excellent metal CD which included almost every metal genre around forged together in a giant metal mixing pot.

Sons Of Seasons – Magnisphyricon review –
Alas, it looks like Magnisphyricon might be a concept album no lyrics in my hands to ascertainso it is conceivable that lyrical subject matter dictated the mood shift and increase in heaviness. It’s needless to say that the CD was a massive breath of fresh air and something relatively new and unique within the metal scene.

Even Henning Basse ‘s vocals sounded very similar to Roy Khan ‘s. It just keeps the cold outside and the warmth inside. In short; this is a good handmade product. There is even a more aggressive answer to the classic Dream Theater approach to be found on “Lilith”, arguably the most memorable song on here apart from the super catchy opening speeder “Bubonic Waltz”.
Welcome to our newest member, ezysobo. I guess calling Sons of Seasons a project is a bit unfair, since the members stuck together for more than a couple of years, released a pair of albums Magnisphyricon being the second full-length and even toured around their native Germany a bit. Before hearing the new disc, going by just by the tracklist and CD cover alone, I can see that this release is going to be another fusion of Palotai’s musical passions on an even bigger and epic grand scale.
Not exciting to keep up my interest. The album was well produced and the material was very well built. Well, I am glad to say this band did not disappoint me.
Magnisphyricon I haven’t the foggiest idea is ultimately just a good progressive metal effort, hoarding Basse’s mighty range within the walls of restraint, and incorporating bold symphonic elements as well as harder, thrashing rhythms when it suits them.
Metal genres such as symphonic, progressive and neo-classical are just a few to name a few frequent the album, but there is so much more to add. If nothing else, this ongoing changing of the guard outside the bounds of this band leaves those involved with a greater degree of focus towards this project, and along with the bucking of a common trend of side-projects and super-groups foundering after a single studio offering, leaves heightened expectations to be met by their sophomore effort Magnisphyricon.

I am fan of both power and symphonic metal, but I was worried magnisphyricln the progressive elements of Magnisphyricon. Occasionally, the lower end guitar chugs will feel pretty vacant in creativity, but they’re used largely as an accent to the bass player, and the real focus is what’s happening above them.

Tales of Greed The band does not overreach with complexity and sprinkles just the right amount of cheese onto more than an hour worth of music.

Sons of Seasons – Magnisphyricon
Metal like this can be considered an art form of the senses and proves that even metalheads can be musical geniuses. There is room here for creative keyboard representations as in stealthy, jazzy play of Sanctuarymaking the sound practically mischievous. In retrospect, Magnisphyricon endures to this day as a strong album that also presents a road not taken scenario, given that about seven years of studio silence and the exodus of vocalist Henning Basse for a crack at mainstream success with Gus G’s metal-lite solos project followed.
