Pegasus are a fresh French metalcore quintet who have previously only released a couple of singles. Now they have more to offer in their debut EP, Fairy Tale which is unleashed to the masses on the 20th February...
Opener, The Shadow Of Our Soul has an ethereal hopeful intro with distant deep screams and melodic ambient riffs. The breakdown is bad ass and it keeps things changeable throughout, making for a thrilling start...
Mirror, Mirror features melodic striking guitars which are highly sonic and resonant, creating a very enjoyable metalcore offering, and showing the high standards and coherency of the EP.
We reach title track, Fairy Tale which opens on a beautiful dream like state, before being treated to some clean vocals here, for effect and emphasis, keeping things diverse and unpredictable. This is a strong number, that portrays the vibe and sound of the overall release wonderfully. It demonstrates them at their best, showing their individual talents, as well as their tight unit performance.
Innocence has a great surrounding presence, resulting in a pleasing extremely tuneful metal track - something they seem to have mastered!
Closing the EP is, Sacrament which is fast and makes for a high impact, with some seriously nasty sounds injected to add to the heavy core that runs through their sound. This is the sort of song that will have the crowd going wild to scream along too!
They have conjured up a interesting complex, and ambient metalcore sound ,which also comes across very professional. For a debut release, this is exciting and has the perfect balance of light and dark moments, making for some extremely melodic metal that should go down a storm! They are early into their career, but this a brilliant start, producing a flawless EP that is satisfying on the ears!
