This is what happens whenever a nightingale decides to light wherever a metal band is practicing a kickin' new instrumental. Not really, but that wouldn't be hard to envision. Honesty, this is the symphonic metal band Metalwings doing what they do best. Turns out I've been a fan of that style of music for years. On this newest offering There's No Time they prove that they can skillful lull your socks off. If you're a fan of Lacuna Coil, Nightwish, Within Temptation or Evanescence then Metalwings is sure to be right up your metal alley. Not that they're a clone of any of those other bands, or anything, instead these guys provide a truly haunting soundscape all their own. Just read the pure poetry of their lyrics. They simply feel like a wondrous dreamscape: “Time flies like the river Time passes like the wind All by ourselves in this life Where we come and go alone like the rain There's no time To save your heart Searching for a way Far away from the dark There's no time To steal your memories Life is a dream with an end But you have to dream till your last breath.” Don't waste any more time, go check them out now. There you have it The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. -James K. Blaylock

  1. A very interesting song, where a singer barbrastreisand-style, mixed to the most powerful strength of metal, win the top place among the females performing on metal...
    Metalwings pass by a higher and higher level of quality...
    Maybe time passes, but rhythm remains... forever!
