Ida Haukland Marius Silver Bergesen T.O. Byberg Orjan Jorgensen
Genre:Melodic Power/Proggressive Metal
Quality & Originality:Triosphere is one of the best female fronted bands on the planet hands down. The bands third and best album to date mixing the Prog/Power/Metal sound that made this band what it is. The Heart Of The Matter is the best writing and performance this band has done to date really digging in and blowing the doors off what they have done in the past. I am really impressed with the production and how the harmonies are mixed with Ida's vocals. The album was mixed and mastered by the legendary Jens Bogren (Opeth, Symphony X, Kreator etc). This album is the real deal from beginning to end!!!!!!
My Opinion:Trioshpere is not just another female fronted Prog or Power band with the opera vocals like so many think when they hear of female fronted in this genre. Ida can out sing most of the men in this genre with her powerful array of vocal styles and harmonies. The band has shared the stage with the most well respected bands in the world like Crimson Glory, Kamelot, Sonata Arctica. I would put this album up against any female fronted metal band on the planet I do not care what genre or style. Ida and company really deliver!!!!
Overall & Favorites:The Heart Of The Matter, Steal Away The Light, Remedy. I give Ida and company a solid 9.0/10 for bringing The Heart Of The Matter to metal!!!!
