Bio:

Niviane (pronounced nih-vy-anne) is an American power metal band hailing from Sacramento California formed in the fall of 2014. Guitarists Mark Miner & Claudeous Creamer along with bassist Rick Stallkamp created the core sound by melding together their collective influences of classic heavy metal along with modern European metal to produce what has been branded “A new breed of American Power Metal”.In the following months the band recruited drummer Mark Sprague and began writing many of the songs that would later appear on the debut album. The fledgling act still needed a moniker and the name "Niviane" was suggested by guitarist Claudeous Creamer. The final piece of the puzzle had yet to be found, but as fate would have it in the spring of 2015 vocalist Norman Skinner was preparing to start a new project and was contacted by an associate of the band. Within a week the two camps had demoed 3 songs and the original full Niviane line-up was born.Two months later on May 15th, 2015 the band debuted their music live for the first time at The Knitting Factory in Reno, Nevada. Delivering a high-energy performance complete with duel lead guitar attacks and high-soaring vocals, the band began a run of successful show dates. Niviane continued to perform live and write for the debut album through the end of 2015.The group in its infancy was gaining much deserved attention but with a new year came a new line-up. 2016 would begin with Claudeous Creamer & Mark Sprague parting ways with the band and being replaced by guitarist Gary Tarplee & drummer Noe Luna. Without missing a step the band continued forward, performing live while completing the writing process and pre-production for their first album.In May 2016 the band entered Alien Productions Studios with JK Northrup at the helm to begin recording the debut album “The Druid King”. Upon completing a majority of the tracking the decision was made to recruit the talents of Aaron Robitsch to write and record keyboards for the album. The album was completed in March 2017 with a planned release by the end of the year through a yet unnamed label.Niviane continues to perform live throughout the West coast region, diligently working to expand their fan base while writing for the next album

Album:

Marching from California power metalheads, Niviane are back with their new album “The Ruthless Divine”.It’s been a long time since I last heard good power metal band, and imagine my surprise when I got Niviane for review. Without any expectations I just let the music play, and I instantly fell in love with melody, but for a fan of power metal that’s somehow understandable. Never the less, I was really blown away.Combining all of the elements of power metal they made something truly amazing. Mighty drums are putting you in trans while guitars and bass are creating beautiful story, and the keyboards are giving that special note. I really fell in love with vocal. Really powerful and it fits so well with melody, but you already know my attitude about vocals.Album “The Ruthless Divine” is bringing us beautiful stories. Starting their album with “League of Shadows” which somehow on firs few notes reminds me on Amon Amarth. Really energetic song that takes you on journey with variations of melody and tempo. “Crown of Thorns” continues to build up expectations of this album, and somehow they lost me with “Dreams Crash Down”. Oh, the irony. Somehow the fade in begging of the song isn’t what I would appreciate in metal song. Never the less, song is really on point. Really high vocals with powerful melody is definitely one of the trademarks of power metal. “The Ruthless Divine” is taking us back on track and here is where they proved that this song is with every right deserved to be the title of the album. “Fires in the Sky” will relax you and “Fallen from Elysium” will pump you up. “Forgotten Centurion” is right melody for chilling. “Niviane”, the self-titled song. To be honest I wasn’t surprised with this song. Again I’m not fan of fade in intro, but this song is really good representation of the band. It sounds so powerful and so relaxing at the same time. I would love to hear instrumental of this song. One of the last songs “Psychomanteum” starts off really peaceful, but soon it turns into rage. With combination of calming melody with raging parts they created one of my favorites from this album. “Sinking Ships” starts with choir vocals that are leading toward energetic intro. I believe that this is the only song on the album that has choir vocals in it. And I have to admit it’s really nice.one more experiment that gave amazing results. And finally, “Like Lions” is great way to end this album. Full with energy and raging vocals, feels so mighty.After listening this album multiple times in last few days I honestly can say that Niviane will have permanent place in my music library. Anyone that is in love with power metal, this album and this band will be great addition to their collection.
