Once more, their highly diversified songs lure the listeners into a Fantasy World that becomes a thrilling adventure thanks to the high quality of the musical background. Catchy rhythms, enthralling melodies, and elating refrains make “Cube Of Infinity” a model of how Power Metal should sound in the year of 2016… that will fascinate not only fans of bands such as Blind Guardian, Rhapsody, and Orden Ogan.
