Myrath - Legacy Album Review
Stellar symphonic prog metal from fast-rising Tunisians.
For around two years, back in the early throes of their career, Myrath were a Symphony X covers band.
Not exactly your usual Oasis or AC/DC tribute act. But that influence still remains, with their heroes’ sound swamping into their own material. Myrath actually means ‘legacy’ in Arabic, and judging by the potency of the music on their fourth album, the Tunisian five-piece could well be set to leave a lasting imprint on the prog metal scene, and they borrow orchestral flourishes from Symphony X and the fist-clenching melodrama of Stratovarius.
