Absolutely brilliant.

Ever since their debut album 'Onwards' came out in 2007, I've kept a close eye on the career of Norway's Triosphere. Nothing however could have prepared me for the-light-year-jump ahead in the band's song-writing that has culminated in this new album 'The Heart Of The Matter'. This massive leap in musicality, writing and production sees the band making huge strides up the Symphonic Rock ladder and all of their peers should be taking a very worried look over their shoulders at these new contenders to the Symphonic Metal throne. The band seem to have poured everything that they could have into this new album, upping the ante in every single way and with the added bonus of Ida Haukland's vocals, you know even on the first few plays that you are indeed listening to something special.

The songs and the album have taken almost four (long) years to complete but the way that your fingers itch to hit the replay button (as soon as the album finishes) speaks volumes for the quality of songs that can be found on this disc. Listen to the blitzkrieg opening that is 'My Fortress', 'Steal Away The Light' and 'The Sentinel' and your immediately struck by the sheer force the band has used in their musicianship. The guitars are fierce, forceful and heavy, yet throughout the album have they do have an undeniable Melodic sharpness that keeps you immersed as you listen. Haukland's vocals are also stunning, her performance grabs your attention immediately, as her powerful and emotive delivery draws out all that is good from Triosphere's music.

After this amazing start you soon discover that as good as the first few songs are, the rest of the album is even better and as you continue to listen tracks such as 'Breathless', 'Departure', 'Storyteller', 'Relentless', the hook filled and wonderful 'As I Call' and the Gothic splendour that is 'The Hearts Dominion' all combine to blast the dust and debris from your ears. You are soon transported to a magical world of fantasy and splendour created by one of the best exponents of Symphonic Rock/Metal that I've heard in quite some time.

Praise must also be given to the album's production, which is rich and sumptuous and turns each of the tracks into mini epics. Personally I just hope that Triosphere don't take as long again to make an album because I believe that 'The Heart Of The Matter' is only the start of what this band are capable of and I don't think I could bear the wait; absolutely brilliant!
