My ears need something epic…

By some amazing coincidence, both of my favorite artists -that I’ve been respectively following for 3 years, and almost a decade- happened to release new material within a period of two days, between April 28 and April 30 of this year. And although the first is releasing music regularly (despite the fact her indie albums are somewhat confidential, which I find rather regretful), the latter hadn’t been releasing anything for 4 years… So, what were the chances? Anyhow, I like the two of them very much and got my hands on the limited edition for both. It is very likely that I will review these albums sooner or later on this blog.

Akiko Shikata – Inori no Kanata (祈りの彼方, The Other Side of a Prayer)

Single with DVD – 4 tracks
Genre: Medieval/Neofolk
Released: April 28, 2010

Rhapsody of Fire – The Frozen Tears of Angels

Album – Limited Digipack Edition – 11 tracks
Genre: Symphonic Power Metal
Released: April 30, 2010

Both of these albums are fantasy-themed, with well-crafted symphonic arrangements. Epic stuff. Thus, I highly recommend them if you like the genre.
