What started 10 years ago as a symphonic female fronted band, that later developed into a more power/progressive style with the change of vocalists. It now sees their third album become a reality, after touring with the likes of Saxon, Edguy, and now with their upcoming tour with Evergrey, Borealis‘s status as one of the most promising bands in the genre is getting established.
Their new album Purgatory, is one of the best prog/power metal albums released on the first semester of 2015, musical speaking is a more technical album in the progressive side of it, but a lot more raw, and epic on the power metal side of it, which makes a nice combination once you listen to it completely.
Purgatory, offers not only a musical journey to the very core of the Borealis‘s style, but also a painful and dramatic story that once you put it together it will wow you from beginning to end. With this third album Borealis reaches a new level, not only on the musical sense, but as a band as they already started to for a name for themselves.
The Age Of Metal had the chance to speak with vocalist Matt Marinelli of Borealis, about the story behind Purgatory, how the band had grown in the last 10 years, their creative process, and their upcoming North American tour supporting Evergrey this fall.
