Ultimate Fate – Beyond The Horizon EP

Ultimate Fate
Beyond The Horizon EP
Released: April 2011
Melodic Metal/ Symphonic Metal
Released via BlueFreya

‘Beyond The Horizon’ is the new EP from the Gothenburg based, Swedish melodic metal band Ultimate Fate. The band is currently working on their debut album but they haven’t specified a release date yet.

The first track ‘Horizon’ has some catchy guitar parts and demonstrates the singer Jennie’s vocal range as she adapts it to match the pace of the music. Yes, this maybe a female fronted symphonic metal band but luckily these guys owe nothing to Nightwish. The vocals, though powerful, are not operatic in the slightest. In fact this bears more resemblance to the likes of Epica minus the power metal influence.

The same pattern continues with the second track ‘Retribution’. So by the time the melodic guitar intro to ‘Beyond Fear’ gives in to the keyboard infused symphonic metal you pretty much know what you’re in for. It’s refreshing to hear that a crowded market like the world of symphonic metal can still surprise you with a band like Ultimate Fate.

3.5/5
