As you know I like to support young metal bands, especially when these bands are from France and show some potential. The latest discovery is Arcadia, a symphonic metal band from Mulhouse (France). They just released their first EP simply named “Arcadia”.
The EP can be purchased directly from Bandcamp on the band page (see link at the end) and I got my copy via this platform.
The EP contains 4 titles and honestly I liked it. It is heavy, it is loud, it is fast-paced and the keyboards instrumentals are nicely blended without feeling too much invasive or overprocessed.
The only caveat is the front singer is not a mezzo-soprano singer but she is doing a decent performance for a first release.
You can get your hands on their EP through Bandcamp here, there is one track free to listen and you can purchase the EP if you like:
