Nelko Kolarov is perhaps best known for his contribution to Nikolo Kotzev's rock opera "Nostradamus" as a conductor. Nonetheless, one should note that Kolarov has also conducted various operas, composed musicals and played in a Bulgarian popular rock band "Impuls". During 1996 and 1997 his songs won different prizes in famous pop contests and festivals in Bulgaria. This is his first solo album, and it showcases the diversity Kolarov is capable of.
The material on this album is nicely varying. Both laidback ballads and rock tunes are included on this record and as the icing on the cake progressive rock is also featured. In addition, there are numerous other genres audible on "Day of Wrath", but they aren't too significant. The songs are sung in Bulgarian, so I can't comment on the lyrics.
The quality of material on this album is slightly varying, and thus I find myself favouring some songs over the others. For example, I'm a fan of atmospheric music, so it's no wonder I especially like the songs composed for the musical "Hey Poltergeist, say". For example, my favourites are "I Am Guilty" and "Sinful People" among few others (such as "Alone" and "Without Words").
The production on this album is ok... there aren't any grave defects, although the mix is a bit muffled. With a bit more presence, it would definitely sound better. In addition, the drums could have been mixed better.
In case you aren't put off by Bulgarian lyrics and listen to progressive rock & neo-classical music, you might enjoy listening to Nelko Kolarov's Day of Wrath. Since you can freely listen to it three times at Mindawn.com, you should definitely give it a try.
