Jester's Funeral - _Quicksilverlight_
(Black Arrow / Point Music, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (8.5 out of 10)
I have got to hand it to this German power/heavy metal quintet calling themselves Jester's Funeral. Not only does the band have an incredible amount of mystique and imagery making up their record packaging, they have got a solid and truly powerful sound to go along with it. From the opening chords of "Jester's Empire" onto "Traveler", "Eternal Is the End" and "Astrocry", the band keeps the listener interested. Whether it be the strong guitar riffs or the melodic choruses, Jester's Funeral easily wins you over with each track as it plays. With shades of Blind Guardian, Iced Earth and at times even old Metallica, Jester's Funeral helps paint a fresh picture on a genre of music that has been known to go stale on a regular basis. Not this time, as _Quicksilverlight_ is truly a champion-like effort.
