Manticora - The Black Circus Part 1 - Letters

I just picked up this album and I don't really know what to think after giving it a few listens. I'll post a review probably tommorow with a break down of every track. But here's the low-down. The album is a concept album about a guy who joins a traveling circus of gypsies in the late 19th century and writes letters to his friend about the strange and sinister occurences he experiences in the circus. Each song is a letter from the main character to his friend, which is a pretty cool concept I think. Anyways, I'll post the review tommorow but for now, does anyone on here like Manticora or have this album?


Track List
----------

01. Enter The Carnival
02. The Black Circus
03. Intuneric I
04. Enchanted Mind
05. Intuneric II
06. Forever Carousel
07. Freakshow
08. Gypsies' Dance Pt. I
09. Intuneric III
10. Wisdom
11. Intuneric IV
12. Disciples Of The Entities

I've been wanting to get into them for a while but never have. I remembered I heard a song or two I liked on their last album, though I can't remember the name of it...

This album musically reminds me a lot of Blind Guardian, but it's definitely more progressive when it isn't just the straight ahead power metal stuff going. I like it so far

EDIT: Did they just pull an Edguy on 'Forever Carousel' !?

I like Manticora!

I would also recommend:

8 Deadly Sins
Roots Of Eternity (The song The Vision is )
Hyperion
Darkness With Tales To Tell


Black Circus Pt. 2 should be coming soon!
