Quality & Originality: Timo Tolkki's Avalon is a great creation of such layered vocals, guitars, keys, strings, bass and drums that take things to a entire new level. It is really hard to stick this band in a specific genre cause they are metal, gothic, symphonic, prog metal, power metal all wrapped up into a giant ball of powerful music that just about any metal head could find something to take away from the journey. I love the album cause it takes originality to a whole new level but does not clutter it and hide instruments or get muddy. The production value on this album is superb and extremely tight. With the line up of singers that put time into this album is amazing from Zack Stevens, Floor Jansen, Simone Simons etc this album was really a home run out of the gate.


My Opinion: Without trying to sound to one sided I fell in love with this album the first time I heard it. The magical journey that Timo takes us on is something that you will remember for such a long time to come. I wish more musicians took the time to layer and create with the passion this guy puts into his albums. You will not walk away without saying ''wow what is this''. The line up of musicians is simply amazing and a sure hit this year for the visionary musician in your life!!!


Overall & Favorites: Angels Of The Apocalypse gets a favored 9/10 rating. Favorite tracks are Jerusalem Is Falling, The Paradise Lost, Neon Sirens.
