If you like your music to come with a heavy dose of drama and no small amount of pathos then Through Infinity are definitely going to tick a lot of boxes for you. Wandering between a sort of theatrical rock and the more intricate and exploratory end of the genre, they also blend in graceful, classical piano lines, underpin with emotive flute cascades and hints of a world music vibe and the overall affect is both big and clever.

The band is a wonderful cross-pollination of European influences both traditional and contemporary which is hardly surprising when you find that it is made up of people from across the continent and garnered from all genres. And it is this amalgam that informs their signature sound. Somewhere between the power of a stadium rock delivery, the subtleties of a more classically orchestrated composition, the accessibility and hookiness of pop music and the delicacy and technicalities of prog-rock they create a truly rousing sound. And beyond the music a message of unity and strength rings out.

Music written on a grand scale, The Sight of an Eagle is rallying, anthemic, defiant and powerful. But then if you are going to make a statement why resort to half measures?
