Radiance are a band from Italy that plays a heavy form of progressive/power metal with some gothic, experimental, and avant garde elements and this is a review of their 2013 album "Undying Diabolyca" which was released by My Kingdom Music.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with no fast playing or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the keyboards when they are utilized they bring a very progressive and avant garde sound to t he music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine progressive, power metal, gothic, experimental and avant garde to create a sound of their own with some dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing as well as some soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding progressive metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add more progressive elements to the music.
Vocals are all clean singing female vocals, while the lyrics cover dark, metaphysical and occult themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Radiance are a very great sounding heavy power/progressive metal band with experimental, avant garde and gothic elements and if you are a f an of this musical genre, you should check out this album.
