Millenium - Angelfire
Jerry Cordero | Trujillo Alto, PR USA | 02/22/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Outstanding! The music is very tight. Even though the singer is the only member to sing, he overdubs very effectively. The two guitars harmonize and complement each other. The songs have a "uniqueness" to them that gives them their own personality. Great metal, you can live it. Go for it and enjoy the heat of Angelfire."

"And suddenly (at least to me) there was Millenium. Born from the remains of Eyewitness (I was told) this band surprises me with great melodic hardrock. I've been surprised quite a few times this year and this is another release that stunned me sometimes. Millenium may not be for the more AOR orientated people among us, but the ones that love their music a little more hard and heavy sometimes (what a cliché, I know...) like me should take a listen to this little gem! Q5 is the first band that comes to mind when I have to find something to compare this album to. Especially their second album. The beautiful high voice of J. Todd Plant and the layers and layers of vocals in some of the songs make Angelfire at some points sound exactly like that classic from the 80's. So do the brilliant (lead) guitars of Ralph Santolla. What a great sound that man has! My favorite songs are the first 6 (7 if you count the instrumental intro Nations as a song). Beyond The Pain is of such beauty, I can hardly describe it and as you may know by now, I'm not lost for words very often. The same can be said about Until The End Of Time and Julia (what a ballad!). Absolutely two more of my favorite songs this year. I gotta be honest with you though. After these 6 (or 7) gems the level comes down a bit. Bound For Glory is the first harbinger of that. Run gets the level up again but it takes until Saving Grace before we hear the next real great song again. Don't get me wrong, a lot of bands would kill for a song like Waiting For Godot, but after the sheer brilliance (you get used to that very quickly), Waiting For Godot is a bit of a disappointment. So is Remember, an a capella thingy that would have done well on your average AOR album but not on a mighty masterpiece like Angelfire could have been. Fortunately from Saving Grace on the quality increases again. The only thing I can say about The Color Of Night and Hide Behind My Face is that both of them are top-notch after which the little guitar outro Dawn ends the album. Again, this album is not for the faint at heart although it's not metal either. It does have its rough edges though but people who are heavily into 80's hardrock will be pleasantly surpised. It's a shame about the few minor flaws, otherwise this could have been another full score album... Fred Monster"
Euro metal rules

"Todd Plant is an amazing singer and really brings this CD to life. I love the Euro metal sound of heavy guitars and melodic songs. They may have taken a page from American bands but this music is huge overseas right now."
