To begin with, the first thing I want to say is that the first album is amazing and is part of my daily playlist.
When I found out that Solarus was going to release a second album, I was very excited but I also asked myself if they would be able to maintain the level of the previous album?
Only one listened to the whole album was enough to realize how good it is and each time I was more delighted with the spectacular voice of Sarah. My worries were left behind and I was satisfied and even more excited by the great work of these Canadians.
“Darkest Days" is a masterpiece of Power Metal in all
its aspects, each song captures you with great melodies, good riffs, speed and
the perfect harmonization of a spectacular female voice.
I want to congratulate the band for their great work and principally to maintain the level and rise it.
Sincerely I like all the songs but to mention a few highlights: "Holding On" an incredible ballad where the vocalist shows even more her great singing, "Limbo" perfect to be the single of the disc because it has the brand of Solarus sound and "Requiem for the Fallen Pt. II" an aggressive song with a great melody and a prodigious chorus.
In conclusion it is a very good album that will give a lot to talk about in 2019. Every time I feel more eager to see they live and I hope I can do it soon. Keep the good work!!
