Cements their place at the top end of the symphonic power metal tree.

Christian music it would seem is a very subjective thing. You either like the music but not the lyrics, or you like both or neither. Personally I have never had a problem with either the music or lyrics on this type of albums, even though I'm a confirmed dyed in the wool atheist. Instead when I put any album by a Christian artist on the death deck, I let the music that is on it tell its own story and if I like it (or not), it isn't because it's a Christian release, but because the music is good or bad. Thankfully ReinXeed fall into the very good band/album category, with their glorious take on symphonic power metal. The brainchild of Tommy Reinxeed who sings and plays guitar and keyboards on the album, 'A New World' is the sixth album from the band and it keeps up the tradition of excellent ReinXeed albums filled with stellar musicianship and big melodic songs.

'A New World' has a slightly different feel from previous ReinXeed albums and you find yourself listening to a set of songs that deal with more worldly matters than spiritual ones. Like the ever changing domestic situations that we find ourselves living in today, believe me when I say that this album's lyrics don't pull any punches. When then you get to listen to Tommy Reinxeed's buoyant symphonic metal for your selves, songs like 'Distant Horizon', the superb 'Into The Darkness' and dare I say it, the jolly 'The Journey Home', will have you listening to a fantastic up beat take on melodic symphonic rock.

As these songs played I found that the music made me smile and had my toes tapping long before they had finished spinning. Then ReinXeed just continue to pile on great song after great song. With the highly melodic 'The Star' (which has a chorus reminiscent of something off Blackfoot's 'Siogo' album leading the charge) this is followed by 'Curse And Damnation', 'Chalice Of Time', 'A New World' and 'Northern Allstars', all of which never let up the pace or quality that this band offers its listener.

'A New World' and its earlier five counterparts sees ReinXeed cementing their place at the top end of the symphonic power metal tree. If they keep on making albums as good as this then the world will be their oyster, as the saying goes!
