||Pleasant melodic metal with Kiske and Tolkki|
"New Era" in a way sounds like a fresh start for Timo Tolkki; as well as a farewell to his former band. The music trends on the same path as the melodic power metal of Stratovarius did, but is less keyboard driven, it lucks the long-crazy-fast solos, most tracks fall in the mid-tempo category, while the instrumentation along with the production suggest a more down to earth approach. There is plenty of musical variety amongst the songs and the fact that there are three vocalists (Kiske, Sammet, Rantanen) singing on the album adds even more versatility. The standout tracks, in my opinion are the title track, Eden Is Burning, Keep The Flame Alive, Heroes and Last Night On Earth. All in all outstanding vocals by Kiske (one of his strongest vocal performances in recent years), strong songwriting and guitar playing by Tolkki (no shredding), melodic-emotional-confident-fresh and uplifting atmosphere and some really good songs. This is definitely some of Timo Tolkki's best work, but it does not surpass the brilliance of some earlier Stratovarius albums.

|Blood Stain Child|
Idolator CD (2005)
New Era album for sale First released by the Japanese label Pony Canyon in 2005 and receiving a belated U.S. issue two years later, Blood Stain Child's Idolator is the Japanese melodic death metal band's third album. Inhabiting an odd midpoint between Skinny Puppy and Pantera, Blood Stain Child blend thrashy speed metal with heavy industrial dance and techno influences. Given the sense of sonic aggression at the heart of both styles of music, the combination works surprisingly well, tempering some of the histrionics of thrash and adding more melodic interest to the dance beats. The album's one drawback is endemic to both styles, however: ten songs' worth of this sort of thing (closed out with a complete deconstruction of Luna Sea's "True Blue") gets a bit deadening toward the album's end. Taken on their own merits, however, songs like the pummeling "Embrace Me" are cross-genre powerhouses. [The American edition adds a video for the album's first single, "Truth."] ~ Stewart Mason
