June 18 – Review by Stefan – STARGAZERY – CONSTELLATION (Pure Steel Records / Soulfood)

Album number three for the Finnish quintet Stargazery is a fact, was released on May 29th. and has 10 new songs on board that can be enjoyed to your heart’s content for 44:40 minutes. Those familiar with the band (formed by guitarist Pete Ahonen-Burning Point/Ghost Machinery) know that keyboard-driven, quite technical Melodic Power Metal is central. Talking about keyboards, well for the records of “Constellation” they’ve appealed to Pasi Hiltura who’s already proven his skills to Kalmah before.

I also welcome with great pleasure and dignity a world-class vocalist, his name Jari Tiura ex-MSG/ex-Snakegod). The musical connection and drive in this band reaches a very high level, which can also be said of their latest effort “Constellation” ! Who knows Stargazery from their previous albums “Eye On Fire” (2011) and “Stars Alligned” (2015) can already guess what’s to come, can’t they? That’s right, they’re going through the same old frenzy, Melodic Metal with elemants from the good ol’ Hard Rock scene, names like Rainbow (Doogie White period) and Tony Martin era Black Sabbath may be listed.
