Saint-Petersburg-based band Starbreeze releases today their symphonic space metal album named N7. If you haven’t guessed it yet, this is a conceptual album based off of Bioware’s Mass Effect universe and games saga. You don’t believe me? Look at that trailer!

It is a good mix of heavy metal with hints of progressive elements and loaded with symphony.If you like good metal, Mass Effect, or both, head over to their bandcamp page to pre-order the album for 0.50$ (while it’s still time!), and show them some support on facebook too!
