Xandria Theater Of Dimensions
Release Date: January 27, 2017
German epic symphonic metal stalwarts Xandria found stability with singer Dianne van Giersbergen on Sacrificium and now take things to the next level with their seventh studio album, once more produced in loving detail by Joost van den Broek. Theater Of Dimensions is a hyper-emotional affair – and a very heavy one too, naturally. There is a soundtrack-like, orchestral finesse inherent to the compositions, echoed by pounding groove and sophisticated shredding. Folklore and ballad chime in (“Forsaken Love”), heavy thrash rears its ugly head (“We Are Murderers (We All)”), and overall there is no doubt: Xandria are not only fearless, they are at their most entertaining and thrilling.
