Top stuff.

There's some really good Italian Metal bands out there these days – Rhapsody Of Fire and Luca Turilli's Rhapsody spring to mind – and gone are the days when some people, myself included, could only name the odd one; this was of course pre-internet days!

Temperance can be added to that list and although they're a young band (formed December 2013) this little collective is already on their third release following hot on the heels of the 2014 self-titled debut and 'Limitless' in March 2015. 'Limitless' is a very apt title for these musicians as they don't wish to be restricted by specific genre parameters and they've chosen to be more expansive and stretch their musical boundaries on this album. Whilst melody and power were two core values of Temperance's first two forays, their latest is much more introspective and personal with their spiritual issues and connection with our planet opening up their creativity and allowing Progressive, Folk, AOR, Soul and Jazz tendencies to permeate throughout. It really does make for a very interesting listen especially when Soprano sax, real strings and bagpipes are incorporated into Temperance's music to create a big expansive sound.

Not having bios can sometimes make reviews a little tricky, but Temperance appear to have slimmed down to a four-piece featuring vocalist Chiara Tricarico, guitarist and clean/harsh vocalist Marco Pastorino, bassist Luca Negro and drummer/keyboardist Giulio Capone. Capone's brother Sandro, who played rhythm guitar on the first two albums, appears to have left for unspecified reasons although it hasn't affected the quality.

Showing their ambition, the band have created a thirteen minute epic with 'The Restless Ride' that encompasses Metal, Folk and melancholic elements along with the eight minute 'Advice From A Caterpillar' which features keyboard flurries, Jazz and dramatic elements à la Nightwish together with the quiet introspective pieces I alluded to earlier. There's also Marco Hietala-like vocals from, coincidently, (Marco) Pastorino.

The 'At The Edge Of Space' intro is practically a rip-off of NW's 'Ghost Love Score' intro but I think they can be forgiven for that. In truth, Temperance have far more in common with Amaranthe due to the Dance loops and Industrial guitars on 'Haze' and 'A Thousand Places' with its growls and Pop sensibilities.

'Maschere' (Masks) is sung in Italian but the first single 'Revolution' has the hallmarks of a classic; fast-paced, melodic, passionate and Amaranthe-like... I'm still humming it days later – top stuff!
