Moongate Open

 Moongate Open
So today I'm going to start off with a review of Moongate Open. They are a fascinating band that combines a lot of different elements to get a singularly unique sound. With a combination of pop ballads, symphonic metal epics and general electronic insanity I'm not quite sure what to make of these guys. I know for a fact that I like their sound, but they are just so hard to define. Their are a lot of different elements that come into play on this bands record and they are all excellent. The musicianship is great and I really like the classical element to the songs. It gives everything a feel of power that hearkens back centuries. The singing is brilliant and beautiful. They do a good job of capturing the sheer majesty and uniqueness of this record. I really like the contrast between the male and female vocals, it truly is incredible. I have never heard anything more different in my life, yet it somehow manages to stick everything together and sound great. I think part of this might be the absolutely stellar production on the record. It's impressive to hear this level production on a band of this level of popularity. Moongate Open is a mindblowing act and they can do it all. You must listen to them!
