Arryan Path: Terra Incognita

Heavy/Power Metal
Rating: 4.0/5.0

Arryan Path is the personal project of Cyprus-based vocalist Nicholas Leptos (Diphtheria, Prodigal Earth), and Terra Incognita is his first work in nearly six years. As with Diphteria, and the more current Prodigal Earth, Leptos is helped along by his guitarist brother, Socrates Leptos. Nicholas is following a trend here, from past to present, and more akin to the current Prodigal Earth release, by delivering classic heavy metal mixed with power metal. Echoes of forbears and peers Iron Maiden, Rhapsody, Blind Guardian, Kamelot and similar bands are heard throughout this work. Leptos has a powerful voice: clear, distinct, and strong. The song composition vary between the ambitious and epic (Cassiopeia) and heavy and epic (Terra Incognita), with the operative word being "epic". Additionally, Leptos adds a few dashes of Middle Eastern influences into the songs (Terra Incognita, Ishtar). Other gems include The Blood Remains on the Believer and Angel with No Destination. Yet, the entirety of Arryan Path's Terra Incognita is well-crafted melodic traditional heavy and power metal, a rare consistency that makes for a solid and entertaining work. Quite recommended.
