Aevum are an octet(!) hailing from Turin, Italy; that is inclined towards symphonic power metal with prog tendencies, not unlike Nightwish, Amberian Dawn, or Dreams Of Sanity. Now, where the Italians lack is not on the scope or ambition but rather execution.
A very weak recording has been buried under layers of vocals and mastered into a monstrous and amorphous mess. The vocals, male, female, both lead and choral, often are dissonant when they are combined with either one or the other being out of tune at any one time.
