Boanerges - Mas Alla Del Umbral (independent) 2003
1. "Heores en Soledad"
Boanerges is surprisingly good power metal with female vocals. I had heard another release by this band some years ago, but don't remember it being quite this good. The band is tight, the recording is clear yet has a heavy edge, and the songwriting is catchy without coming off as commercial. Boanerges almost have a prog metal sound, but I wouldn't describe them as a prog metal band. Unfortunately the lyrics on this disc are all in Spanish, except for their cover of Stryper's "Soldiers Under Command." I would assume from what I have read about this band that their lyrics focus on Christian themes, but since I can't really decipher the lyrics, I can't say for sure. Guess I will have to keep an eye out for the other Boanerges discs.
