CD Review by Kat Zee TRACK LIST: 1. Sunchaser 2. Echoes 3. Warrior's Path 4. Reflections 5. Nightmare BAND: Melissa Adams-Vocals Joanne Robinson-Vocals James Brough-Guitar Slick Druzkowski-Guitar Gary Solomon-Bass Tim Hall-Keyboard Tony Gaskell-Drums AONIA is female-fronted Symphonic Metal band from Yorkshire in the United Kingdom. This seven piece band has released their second EP “Sunchaser” on July 25, 2014. The track “Sunchaser” is a fabulous opener--with great melodic guitar work and the symphonic echoes, underscored by the NIGHTWISH-infused operatic female vocals. With its driving Metal licks and rhythms, one can’t help but feel the presence of IRON MAIDEN. In the track “Echoes”, one can hear and FEEL the “march” of the guitars and percussions that surround the listener and engulf the senses.
