German band Far Beyond is a solo project of Eugen Dodenhoeft that’s been active since 2001. A Frozen Flame of Ice is Far Beyond’s second full-length album. Far Byond touches many genres with their epic metal. Symphonic metal, power metal, melodic death metal and even bits of gothic and black metal is the sound coming from A Frozen Flame of Ice. If I had to put a label on them though I would say the main influence is Symphonic Death Metal. Taken five years to release the album the album is very well produced and Eugen has left nothing half-done. Everything from the clean vocals, growling to guitar riffs (A Frozen Flame of Ice 5 min in is mint) and songwriting is spot on.
Very beautiful album that expresses many different emotions. If you are a fan of Finnish legends Eternal Tears of Sorrow and Wintersun then check out Far Beyond and their latest album A Frozen Flame of Ice.
