Since their inception in the early 00’s, EXCALION have regularly dispensed some flawless melodic power metal with a prog angle.
Pillars of the keyboard-oriented Finnish style, they are currently enjoying a second artistic youth: ‘Once Upon a Time’ is simply their best work to date. The album will come out on March 24th, via Scarlet Records.
Each song of the new album is a different masterpiece of its kind, meticulously crafted and very well refined in every single detail – including a clever lyrical approach.
Emerging from the massive and yet pristine wall of sound, Marcus Lång’s extraordinary voice, range and interpretation are just the icing on the cake of a modern, mature power metal classic.
It’s not about reinveinting the wheel; it’s about making it spin wonderfully!
