Labyrinth

Labyrinth has gained a solid reputation over the last decade or so as a standout progressive metal band, and is, along with Rhapsody Of Fire, among Italy's most well-known bands in the field. Until recently, their work was somewhat of a European Fates Warning, blended with a bit of speed metal. The departure of guitarist Olaf Thorsen in late 2002 (due to musical differences -- he now devotes time to his side-project-turned-band Vision Divine) signalled a change in their style, and that change is evident on the self-titled Labyrinth release of 2003. Decidedly less progressive and more based in 80's power metal (though still with Euro speed metal touches), it's not a radical departure from their past but a noticeably shift nonetheless. In keeping with most power metal bands, Labyrinth aims not to change the world or reinvent heavy metal, but they are still a reliable force in traditional metal.
