Play the first few seconds of the opening track “Waiting for the Son” and you might come to the same conclusion I did – EPIC! I enjoy the symphonic stylings in the power metal genre, and if you’re a fan of Aldaria you may just like this release too. “In the name of the Son” is the second album in a series by Enzo & The Glory Ensemble, its precursor being “In the name of the Father” released in 2015. This album took Scripture and prayers and set it to metal music. “In the name of the Son” continues in a similar vein, and traces first Israel’s desire for a Messiah – the Suffering Servant whom we recognise as Jesus Christ prophesied in Isaiah 53, before continuing with Jesus’ invitation to take up His yoke in Matthew 11:25-30.

Listen out for the messages contained in the songs that reference specific passages of scripture in their titles, like “Luke 1:28”. These songs link Old Testament prophecies with their fulfilment in the New Testament. I love how the instrumentation in each track paints a picture of a distant time, yet remains current by wrapping everything in a heavy metal cloak. Enzo Donnarumma and his collaborators amalgamate past and present effortlessly, and this is a testament to the calibre of the musicians involved in the project. Here they are, pictured below.
