This album is a milestone of epic electro metal and gives you hymn by hymn a whole universe of majestic choirs, futuristic synthesizers, unforgettable hit melodies, brilliant arrangements and brutal, sophisticated metal sounds.
An interview I did with Magic Fire Music.
There are bedroom projects and there are bedroom projects, I can tell you that.
Having already released two albums under the project name Dol Ammad and two under Dol Theeta, Greek composer Thanasis Lightbridge returns to the former to unleash the first of what would appear to be a multi-release barrage of “Electronic-Art-Metal”.
It has been a breathless and challenging trip at times, but there’s no denying the skill and effort required to make this music work with the strength and clarity with which it does.
Similar to Dol Ammad, this 2008 album from Dol Theeta leaves a slightly more immediate impression and is definitely the most readily accessible starting point for Lightbridge’s electronica meets Therion style work.
This is interesting and innovative music that borrows from such a wide variety of places that the end results are unsurprisingly original, but pleasantly coherent and engaging.
Though electronic driven music often sounds emotionless to the majority of hard rock/metal listeners, this is not the case here. Music full, lush and occasionally spectacular is what you get. Buy.
Our buoni amici over at The Pit of the Damned Blog wrote a great review for the “Winds Of The Sun”.
If you know French I think you will enjoy this great review for “Winds Of The Sun” from our friends in Heavylaw. Merci beaucoup!
The song itself is excellent. It’s oozing with Dol Theeta’s style and minimalism (compared to Dol Ammad). It has everything an excellent Dol Theeta song should have.
Our great friends from Avantgarde-Metal.com have recently released a PDF issue of stories and reviews from the Avantgarde-Metal world which includes an interview I did with them some years ago and reviews for my music.
DOL THEETA is indeed a real Psychedelic Experience. It can bring you to any place in the universe. Don’t miss this magnificent mindtrip!
This masterpiece raises high expectations for the forthcoming first full-length album of DOL THEETA.
I find it to be a fantastical album, where ocean meets universe with a lot of atmosphere in between. All my thumbs, including big toes up!
Star Tales is my personal soundtrack to the places I always wanted to go to and imaginary alien civilizations I wanted to visit.
Our friend Cedric from Magic Fire Music wrote a great review for “Winds Of The Sun”.
Wherever Thanasis Lightbridge wants to take us next, it ought to be one hell of a ride.
