SuddenFlames is a Heavy Metal/Power Metal band from Quebec City in Canada. The sound of SuddenFlames is influenced by traditional Power Metal bands like Gamma Ray, Helloween and Hammerfall. The members of the band are big fans of Old school Metal like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest and one can hear it. Melodies and musical structure are typically European but with a strong American thrash sound...SuddenFlames is born in 2001 around Jean-Robert Letarte. The song « The Headless Horseman » was written when he was only 15. We have to wait to 2004 for the release of a demo entitled Bewitched Boat. The band is then Jean-Robert Letarte on vocals, Sebastien Latulippe and Eric Vaillancourt on guitars, Pascal Lacombe on bass and Eric Morissette on drums. This demo includes three original songs taken from their current set list. Following that release came many shows as supporting act for bands like Dragonforce, Stratovarius, Kamelot, Paul Di'Anno (ex-Iron Maiden) and a Canadian Tour in 2007 with Paul Di'Anno and Dream Quest. Sebastien Lessard took the bass spot as a replacement for that tour as Pascal Lacombe was not available at that moment. In 2008, Pascal Lacombe leaves the band for personal reasons. He is replaced by Pascal Landry just before entering the studio to record their first complete album. December 2009 Death Might Be Late is launched in front of a crowded audience and is well received and acclaimed by the critics. Another change of members occurs in 2010 and 2011. First, the return of Pascal Lacombe on bass. Then, in 2011, Eric Vaillancourt and Eric Morissette are taking different roads. The band has to postpone the awaited follow-up to Death Might Be Late. On May 15th the web site announces the arrival of Daves Couture on guitar. The band will be complete again in August with the confirmation of Nicolas Blanchet on drums. The songs for the next album are completed and recording sessions are beginning in late 2011. A first excerpt from the next album will soon be released.
POWER METAL can often be a double edged sword. On the one hand, the musicianship tends to be top notch or at least up there in the ranks, but on the other hand, it can come off sounding very “samey” from track to track, and band to band! Thankfully Quebec’s SUDDENFLAMES provide us with an album that keeps things a bit fresher, with plenty of heaviness balancing with their epic sound.“Vendetta” starts us off with the sounds of a music box that you realise is the main riff of the song as guitars start fade in from the distance before slamming into the riff properly. This is a strong start to the album, with nice powerful vocals supported by lots of great metal underneath.“Pilgrims Of Steel” is a bit faster, with the drums pushing things on with plenty of double bass drumming going on. This is one of the heavier ones, with lots of gang vocals, chugging guitars and overall frantic sense of speed. The chorus here is pretty cool, with lots of cool vocal layering that gives it a sort of RHAPSODY OF FIRE fell but definitely a lot heavier. This is also a bit of a longer track, and features a cool breakdown (not the Metalcore variety) with lots of cool moments happening throughout keeping it interesting.As I said this album offers plenty to keep things interesting. Tracks like “Warrior Of Hell” which has a dramatic feel to it, full of tense chord voicings and guitar playing, with a cool and different approach to the vocals. The lyrics seem pretty typical power metal but it works really well so it doesn’t really matter, and the chorus is another nice and catchy one. “Tormented Mind” offers a bit more of a melodic track, with some really well performed basslines and almost bluesy guitar leads before heading into the main riffage of the track. This one is quite cool, as it offers plenty of melody but balances it well with the heavy guitar riffs keeping it firmly in METAL territory. It should be noted that this is an instrumental, and a good one at that (barring some vocal choir style sounds that might have been keyboards but was quite low in the mix so I wasn’t totally sure!Title track “Under The Sign Of The Alliance” is a nice and long track to finish up the album with, with a BLIND GUARDIAN meets HELLOWEEN feel, with heavier riffs meeting really old school power metal riffage that really impressed me. More layered vocals add to the epic feel of the track and album, setting in stone what the band is all about for one last time on the album.The production is pretty good, the vocals shine overall really; lots of layering and harmonies going on here, and the guitars sound good too. The bass is nice and audible which is always a personal plus and the drums are plenty powerful enough, a little “clicky” sounding at times but it suits the overall sound well.This album blends good things from both old-school and modern Power Metal and feels squarely aimed at that sort of fan. It’s definitely a good album, with strong songwriting you’d expect from a second album onwards, with very well performed instruments all around, and plenty of style throughout.
