D' un Autre Song

D' un Autre Song
(NTS - 2004)

Not every melodic power metal fan will like Manigance, mainly because of the French lyrics, but I think this makes them even more interesting. Some say that their last release Ange ou Demon been better, but I think it is just about the personal preference. Okay, the production isn't as good as on the predecessor, but still okay. I think critics have mainly problems with the keyboards who are more up-front this time. With Empire Virtuel they recorded an up-tempo track while Heritier is an anthem. Great guitar riffing and the voice of Didier Delsaux are the trademarks of their sound. I won't say that they are as good as Nocturnal Rites, but they are a good band and the next release(s) will show, if they have the ability to get into the premier league. Perhaps they will never make it into the upper class of melodic power metal, coz they don't sing English... But I have the hope that more fans will give the French a chance!
