Madrigal proffers competently played but mostly uninteresting power metal. The piano that sprinkles several tracks harks back to the earliest Savatage moments, and sometimes vocalist Martin Karlsson resembles John Bush in his Armored Saint days, but the tempos never graduate beyond a drone, and the music is not gothic enough (even though it tries very hard) to warrant such slow-witted redundancy. I Die, You Soar was not released in the U.S.A., which makes it a pricey import for the fan who just has to have everything.
