VIRGIN STEELE - THE HOUSE OF ATREUS - NOISE
'For best results play at maximum volume' reads the liner note of The House of Atreus Act II (and not Atreaus as the accompanying CM letter states) making one wonder of which album is the mention. The follow up to Virgin Steele's first foray into all things Atreus, has its metal moments, but is also ridden with symphony, opera, piano pieces and in general one too many classical pieces to be accepted as a metal album. Having stated the obvious, VS has put a lot of thought into these discs; arranging and writing to mold the play onto disc. This is a thinking man's record, yet like all concept albums fails to appeal as by definition the arrangements are subservient to the concept and not to optimal composition and flow. Fans of conceptual albums, Manowar vocals and even those looking for Hammerfall's influences may glimpse here. Note the reappearances here of several parts and songs of Act I and the Magick Fire Music EP. - Ali "The Metallian"
