Headed up by pianist, keyboardist, and classically-trained composer Pierre Le Pape, Melted Space represents an ambitious attempt to unify heavy metal with an opera, featuring a full orchestra and a cohort of guest vocalists and musicians which would make Arjen Lucassen (of Ayreon) and Tobias Sammet (of Avantasia) think twice. Darkening Light requires disaggregation given its many layers and components. The metal doesn’t comfortably fall into one sub-genre but principally draws from classic, power and melodic death metal. Given this, I would expect a stronger narrative and structure. The album opens well in this regard, with a building urgency across The Void Before.
