Guitar prowess aside, Kalidia is worthy of accolades in the arena of Female-Fronted Hard Rock/Heavy Metal bands.

Album reviews can be mostly more hit-or-miss affairs when the task at hand is to critique a band of which you have no prior knowledge. However, when the expectations are removed and the album delivers, the impact is somewhat magical; the debut from Kalidia entitled 'Lies' Device' is one such recording.

Hailing from the Tuscany region in Lucca, Italy, Kalidia is a Female-Fronted quintet who has been delivering their brand of Power Metal since 2010 with their release of the 'Dance Of The Four Winds' EP.

2014 shows them soldering on and adding to their discography with their first full-length album in the band's career. Since their debut EP, it is clear that they have been patient and working tirelessly to create a long player that will perk the ears of many a listener preferring music of a heavier, yet just as equally melodic persuasion.

Vocalist Nicoletta Rosellini floats atop the rhythm section's tumultuous and substantial backbone creating a juxtaposition that works well. The fleet-footed, double bass drumming of Gabriele Basile gives each song a momentum that brings to mind Steve Harris' galloping bass lines, a defining characteristic of much of Iron Maiden's catalogue. From the massive organ intro of 'The Lost Mariner' to the last notes of 'In Black And White', this album is strictly up-tempo. 'Shadow Will Be Gone' is the only track that restrains the pace in the form of an eloquent and artful ballad.

This album comprises strength in all the primary areas including vocals, melodies, riffs, drums and keyboards making 'Lies' Device' worthy of a near-perfect score. Despite how well the album resonates, the proverbial "Achilles Heel" stands to be the guitar solos. From the virtuosity which has become commonplace of the mighty six/seven/eight stringer these days, the guitar solos lack the technique and precision that the album deserves. Guitar prowess aside, Kalidia is worthy of accolades in the arena of Female-Fronted Hard Rock/Heavy Metal bands.
