From New York City, Flames of Fury were formed in 2009 and in such a short amount of time they have already shared the stage with some great metal bands, for example: Doro, Rhapsody of Fire, Stryper and Kill Devil Hill just to name a few. They have a reputation for being a killer live band, well, with the release of this 5-song EP, they are sure to gain the reputation for being a killer band, period.
From the opener “Take It to the Limit”, Flames of Fury hit the ground running. They combine elements of classic metal with modern day power metal. The songs sound fresh and are brimming with confidence. In vocalist Angelica Vargas the band has a singer who delivers with all of the power and passion of Ronnie James Dio or Doro Pesch.

Review by Tony Cannella
“Paint the World” is the full-length debut from the Italian power metal band Sinheresy. They already made a positive impression with their 2011 EP “The Spiders and the Butterfly” and with this new full-length the band has certainly raised the bar to an even higher level.
The orchestral opening to “Last Fall” segues into full-on power metal riffing and the power metal vocals of male singer Stefano Sain starts off before Cecilia Petrini joins in with her soaring vocals on the chorus. This is song is just a heavy-as-hell exercise in top-notch power metal. “The Gambler” follows seamlessly with more straight-forward, hard charging riffs and “Paint the World” continues to find its groove. Cecilia takes the lead on this track with some hefty contributions from Stefano and this is a song that packs some serious heaviness combined with a combustible melody and those riffs are just huge.

Intro by Miriam C.The last power progressive metal sensation comes from Brazil and it’s called Vandroya and they are fronted by the majestic force (and vocals) of Daisa Munhoz. Although their debut album “One” was released at the beginning of the 2013 onto Inner Wound Recordings, we totally release that they deserve a bigger space then a review and so here served a nice and interesting interview. Daísa welcome to Femme Metal Webzine it is a pleasure having you here. Thank you for your time. Vandroya is a very unique name for a band. Can you explain how the band settled on the name Vandroya?
It’s my pleasure, thank you very much for this opportunity. There isn’t a special story behind the band’s name, actually. We started as a cover band and we rehearsed in the garage of our guitarist Rodolfo Pagotto and many people frequented these rehearsals, to drink beer, listen to heavy metal. So, we were turning news in our region and invitations for small presentations began to appear and we didn’t have a band name. A friend of ours, Andre Deutern, suggested this name during a rehearsal and we adopted it, cause we thought it was a strong name. Continue reading »
