Stratovarius - Elysium (2011)

The thirteenth album of the leaders of power metal.
Elysium is balladic, [id_ notes, this is a word] with epic and catchy riffs that is typical of Strat. Though (I believe for the good) this album doesn't contain the symphonic parts like that from the Elements albums.
The first three songs of this album totally stand out, with a neo classical sound, powerful vocals and a great keys/guitar solo.Notice the grandiose cover artwork.
I'm not a big enthusiast of power metal, so go ahead download and tell me what you feel.
