Some bands just don´t allow limitations or restrictions. Experiments are necessary for them to discover the depth of their vision. SYMPHORCE are one of those bands. The hard working group around singer Andy B. Franck (also Brainstorm) and guitarist Cede Dupont is known for only releasing first-class material as well as breaking stylistic borders and playing the hottest up-to-date Power Metal that one has heard in the last 10 years.
What better title could have been found for the new SYMPHORCE album than "Unrestricted"? It sums up the band´s attitude perfectly and is underlined by a scenario of breaking chains on the cover artwork. "Unrestricted" comes at you like a hammerfist wrapped into a velvet glove. Powerful, modern, melodic, traditional, angry and sensitive, all at the same time. Undoubtedly it is the most "catchy" piece of work that the band has ever created – and it´s all hits! This album is highlight-filled from start to finish, delivering a strong dose of gutsy Power Metal that whether lacks balls nor melody. Cleverly integrated electronic elements and the forceful executed and creative guitar work make SYMPHORCE something special amongst the Metal scene. “Unrestricted” was recorded in the Studio 22 (Ludwigsburg, Germany), mixed and mastered by Axel Heckert.
