Stegzy's Music Project

A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Dream of the Wizard – Various Artists [#390]

on September 1, 2015

imagesSometimes the album title makes the acquisition seem like a good idea.

This is case in point to not judge an album by its cover. It’s truly awful nonsense featuring the “best” of Scandinavia and Europe’s Operatic Metal scene.

Appearing here are Trail of Tears, Evanescence, Avantasia, Leaves’ Eyes, Sirenia and Lacuna Coil. Also joining the cacophony we are subjected to Persephone, After Forever, Tristania, Theatre of Tragedy  and a number of other bands before being treated to some Nightwish with their Dark Chest of Wonder.

The band list alone makes it sound like an ideal compilation except for the fact there is no cohesion to the compilation (This is an unofficial compilation anyway so it is more than likely fan generated) and because of that it suffers becoming dirge.

Shame really.
