Today, we showcase Citadellion, a promising symphonic metal band hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden. In this review, we delve into their remarkable song, "Seasons of Our Lives," exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Citadellion is a band that caught my attention approximately three months ago with their irresistible song, "Seasons of Our Lives," featured on their latest EP album, "Introspection," released in 2019. The band has been making official releases since 2009, starting with their full-length album, "Adventurers of Taeloth." "Introspection" marks their second official release—a testament to their love for music and commitment to their craft. I understand the challenges artists face, and I deeply respect their perseverance. Please enjoy this song while reading the rest of the article.

"Seasons of Our Lives" is an exquisite composition with an array of captivating elements. Upon my initial listen, it transported me back to my childhood, evoking memories of records and bands such as Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, and Dream Theater. The song follows a somewhat standard structure but stands out with its medieval vibes, rich instrumentation, musicality, and irresistible atmosphere. These elements reminiscent of my first encounter with Blind Guardian resonate with originality and the desire to learn. Citadellion's composition possesses a mysterious ambiance that exudes stillness, punctuated by moments of intensified energy reminiscent of '90s heavy metal. The band has made a remarkable addition to the instrumentation by incorporating classical guitar, violins, and other instruments. The inclusion of classical guitar, particularly in a brief section, infuses the listener's heart with medieval vibes—a beautiful touch. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this song, reveling in the band's delicious blend of heavy, symphonic, and atmospheric metal elements.

Technically, "Seasons of Our Lives" demonstrates excellent standards. As previously mentioned, the song's structure is not overly complex, and its post-production is well-executed. The mix strikes a perfect balance, offering a clean, clear, atmospheric, and dynamic sound. I found myself fully content with every decision made during the creation of this song. The overall harmony and balance evoke nostalgia for '90s heavy metal, further enhancing the listening experience.

Taking all these factors into account, I can confidently say that I had a great time listening to Citadellion. "Seasons of Our Lives" showcases the band's immense potential in terms of musicality, atmosphere, creativity, and instrumentation. I extend my gratitude to all the members for crafting another beautiful record and contributing to the enrichment of the music world. I eagerly anticipate future releases from these talented Swedish musicians.

"Seasons of Our Lives" is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to fans of '90s melodic and symphonic metal music.
