Gemini Abyss – “Claim of the Planet” (2013)

Label: Ravenheart Records

Review by Tony Cannella

From Poland comes the melodic metal band Gemini Abyss. Their debut album is titled, “Claim of the Planet”. The album is a solid melodic metal feast and a great beginning for this band.

The eerie intro “The Abyss” starts us off and really grab the attention with a spoken word demonic type voice, this segues into the racing power metal of “Claim of the Planet”. This is definitely an up-tempo number and this is the type of track that would be a great set opener. It’s got a real live feel to it. “Cold Rain” is next and picks up where the previous song left off. The band has shot a video for this track, and it was a solid choice, in my opinion. “Claim of the Planet” features some great solos and classic riffing as well. Other highlights include: “The Story”, “Princess of the Night” and “Where Angels Die”.

Ravenheart music has given us a lot of great, unheralded music over the years and with their debut album “Claim of the Planet”, you can add Gemini Abyss to that list.

Rating – 77/100
