FINALLY! Greek Melodic Metal masters Star.gate return with their third album “Longing For Light”. Three years after their “Reborn” release Star.gate are back in full action presenting their best record so far. Amazing compositions, melody and passion and absolutely NO fillers in this one!
New line featuring the legendary guitarist Sotos Gogos (surely one of the top class musicians from Thessaloniki – Greece) plus the mastermind of legendary Greek Progsters Horizon’s End on keyboards. Yes Sakis Bandis is back in action and his performance on the new Star. gate will blow your mind away. On vocals? You will hear THE voice of John Jeff Touch (ex-Vision).
Album’s artwork is done by Caio Caldas and yes it couldn’t be better.
If you still in the quest for some exciting music that combines Melodic and Neoclassical Metal, if the performance of excellent musicians really matters to you and if bands like Royal Hunt, Rainbow, Magnum, Rising Force, Talisman. and Ten are on the top of your favourites-list then you NEED this record.
