The Italian band Starbynary find their inspiration in the TV series Dexter and the universe, looks like there could be something interesting in their debut album "Dark passenger".
They sound a bit like if Tony Mills (ex.TNT) would join a band with members of Sonata Arctica and Superior, we get high pitched vocals and classic powermetal with some elements of modern prog and even 70´s hard rock.
Starbynary are excellent musicians but not the best songwriters I´ve heard in this genre, I appreciate the heavier approach and the Rainbow-like pieces that gives this musical journey a push.
It´s not bad but it´s not great either.
