Headed up by vocalist Nicholas Leptos, Boston-bred (now Cyprus dwelling) Arrayan Path is releasing their fourth album: IV: Stigmata. The band plays Epic/Power Metal, and IV: Stigmata is a religious-based concept album presented within a dark soundscape. Arrayan Path has received accolades for prior releases, and many consider Leptos to be a promising Bruce Dickinson-esque vocalist. Overall, Leptos and the rest of the band perform admirably throughout this album, however, this isn’t the 1st Epic/Power Metal album ever made whose theme revolves around religion, and musically too there’s very little truly new or innovative to be found throughout IV: Stigmata.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
