Bio:

The PALADINE story started in 2013 when a group of three friends from Athens, Greece, felt the strong desire to express their common passion for Epic Heavy Metal. Founding members Chris “Crazy” Stergianidis (bass), Thanos Kollintzogiannakis (guitar – DESERT NEAR THE END) and Stamatis Katsafados (drums – THE SILENT RAGE), all former members of the underground band MYTHRAAL, decided to make their dream a reality and joined forces once again. The outcome was the composition of original material in Chris' home studio and the formation of a new band under the name “PALADINE”.The purpose of PALADINE was to create music by combining the finest elements of what makes Metal, especially US-style Epic Heavy Metal, so great: power, melody, speed, energy and emotion. At the same time, the search was on for an appropriate singer that would fit with the band's epic sound and feeling. Finally, after a long period of searching, in 2014, Nick Protonotarios, aka The Metalizer, became the chosen one and joined as both the band's singer and lead guitarist. In 2015, the complete line-up took shape as the band was joined by keyboardist Marilena Plitsi. The combination worked and it gave PALADINE the unique edge that defines the band's sound.In late 2016, PALADINE completed the recording, mixing and mastering of their debut full-length album “Finding Solace” at Devasoundz Studios in Athens, Greece, in collaboration with their producer and huge friend Thimios Krikos (guitar – INNERWISH, DIVINER). Following that, a deal was signed with No Remorse Records for its release on 7 April 2017.Currently, the band is planning to release both a lyric video and a music video as part of the promotion of the album. Also, the band is confirmed as one of the opening acts for the Athens show of MANILLA ROAD's 40th Anniversary tour on Monday 1 May 2017.PALADINE strongly believes that Metal is a lifestyle, a religion and a lot more than a simple music genre. Therefore, the band is committed to create and play Epic Heavy Metal without any compromises and wishes to become a part of its rich history.

Album:

The origins of Greece's Paladine are found in the ashes of another, now defunct, Greek band: Mythraal. Founding members Chris Stergianidis (bass), Thanos Kollintzogiannakis (guitar), and Stamatis Katsafados (drums) are former members of that band. They rise again to create a new melodic power metal and offer a new album Finding Solace. They're joined by Nick Protonotarios on vocals and lead guitar and Marilena Plitsi on keyboards. Protonotarios has a guitar project, The Metalizer, where he takes television and movie themes and makes them into melodic heavy metal. (And you're welcome for the pitch.Without wanting to sound either cliche or condescending, Paladine essentially creates formulaic and derivative European model power metal. Their foundation is classic and traditional melodic heavy metal, adding the gallop of speed metal and the slight embellishment of symphonic metal. Twin guitar harmony in riffs and guitar lines is prominent as are the thrilling lead solos from Protonotarios. In several songs, like Dragonrider and Knight of the Black Rose, Paladine drops in some sweet acoustic guitar parts for accent. For the title cut and metal ballad, Finding Solace, the entire song turns on voice over those acoustic guitars. The bass and drum lines in the rhythm section have the power to propel faster songs like Dragonrider or The Metalizer, yet also give a song such as Master of Present and Past some infectious rock groove. In that song and the later Midnight Sky, the bass line introduces the song. The lead vocals are the typical metal variety with Protonotarios having an assertive, bit screamo at times, style, yet still remaining melodic and clean. When combined with harmonious backing vocals the vocal arrangement can be the catchy hook that makes the song click. Such is the case with Master of Present and Past, probably my favorite song here. What is notable by its near absence is the keyboard layer, which is barely heard throughout the entire album. It makes you wonder what contribution, if any, Ms Plitis adds to the band in a live performance.In the end, for a debut album, Finding Solace is a fine first effort from Paladine, a solid and entertaining platter of traditional European power metal. If you're a fan of the genre, as I am, you will want to check it out. Recommended.
