Citadellion – Seasons of our Lives Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising symphonic metal band; CITADELLION, from SWEDEN. We have reviewed their great song; Seasons of our Lives, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Citadellion is a promising symphonic/melodic/atmospheric metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 3 months ago with their irresistible song; Seasons of our Lives, off from their latest EP album; Introspection, which was released in 2019. The band is officially making releases since 2009. They have started their careers with a full-length album called; Adventurers of Taeloth in 2009, and Introspection is their second official release, an EP with 5 songs after ten long years. Once again, a discography which shows us a band who is making music just because of their love for music. And that is why Citadellion is a respected band without a doubt. I personally know how challenging the life of an artist or a band can be, so I totally understand this situation (the long wait), and also admire all of their efforts in making their second album. Please give it a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Seasons of our Lives certainly is a beautiful song with so many beautiful things about it. When I first listened to this song, it immediately reminded me of some records and bands from my childhood with its overall vibes such as Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, and Dream Theater. The song has a quite standard structure. It’s making the actual difference with its Medieval vibes, inspiring rich instrumentation, musicality, and irresistible atmosphere. These were the reasons why it took me back to those days when I was discovering Blind Guardian for the first time. I can’t say I am a big fan, yet there was originality in them, so, many things to be learned. In Citadellion’s case, the overall ambiance is super mysterious. I loved the stillness in this song. Also from time to time, the energy gears up and brings in the heavy weapons from the ’90s heavy metal into the scene. On the other hand, the band has done a remarkable thing by making the instrumentation richer by adding classical guitar as well as violins and some other instruments. The moment when the classical guitar plays that small section, it immediately fills the listener’s heart with Medieval vibes, which is beautiful. Briefly, I personally loved everything they have done here. The band has a delicious blend of heavy, symphonic and atmospheric metal elements, which I enjoyed listening to every single second of it.
Technically, Seasons of our Lives has great standards as well. As I have mentioned the structure of the song before, there’s nothing too complex about its post-production as well. Everything sounds very well balanced, clean, clear, atmospheric, dynamic, very well mixed, mastered and in great harmony. I haven’t thought about anything technical while listening to the song a few times before writing my article. In other words, I was happy with all of their decisions. The overall balance is so good there’s no need to think about that part at all, which is another reason I thought about the ’90s heavy metal music at the same time.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I have had a great time listening to Citadellion. Seasons of our Lives is a very promising song where the band shows great potential with their musicality, atmosphere, creativity, and instrumentation. I would like to thank them all for making another beautiful record and making this world a better place, and certainly love to see some more releases by these Swedish gentlemen in the future!
Seasons of our Lives is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to those who love ’90s melodic and symphonic metal music!
