Bandcamp Series: Kalidia - Lies' Device (2014)

Kalidia is an Italian melodic power band who formed in 2010.  Nicoletta Rosellini is the vocalist with Federico Paolini on guitars, Alessandro Cecchini on drums and Nicola Azzola on keyboards. With the input of bass player Roberto Donato the band soon recorded its first EP Dance of the Four Winds which was released in 2012.  Their debut album Lies’ Device was released on 27th June, 2014.

The album features 10 tracks:

The Lost Mariner
Hiding from the Sun
Dollhouse (Labyrinth of Thoughts)
Reign of Kalidia
Harbinger of Serenity
Black Magic
Shadow will be Gone
Lies' Device
Winged Lords
In Black and White

Lies' Device is an incredibly original album that combines melodic and power metal with some symphonic elements for good measure.  I loved the speed of the tracks, with only Shadow Will Be Gone slowing the tempo just a little.  Nicoletta's vocals are not trying to overpower or dominate but instead compliment the music perfectly.  I think my favourite track has to be the opener: The Lost Mariner.

You can buy the album from Bandcamp here or stream for free.  Check it out and get it added to your collection!
