In Defiance of Fortune
ASPIRE's third full-length album follows in the steps of the two previous successful releases (also available from CD Baby). The band artfully combines the roar of Power Metal with Classical arrangements and clear powerful voice. If you enjoy any from the above list, you'll love this CD. 'Many bands of the genre tend to focus on showing off how many scales and modes they can cram into each track; Aspire are more concerned with melody and power, and manage to comfortably walk the fence between complicated and catchy, another testament to their considerable musical talents.' West Side Dave's Reviews New York, USA.
