WONDERS – The Fragments Of Wonder
“The Fragments Of Wonder” moves in the musical sphere between Stratovarius and Beast In Black, spiced with a progressive touch. The production is powerful and guitar-heavy – an important feat because apart from catchy melodies and choruses, the guitar work is one of the outstanding trademarks and makes this album a real gem of the genre.
In 2020, the two EVEN FLOW musicians Pietro Paolo Lunesu and his brother Giorgio Lunesu (both from Sardinia) started a new cooperation with the Greek producer and keyboardist Bob Katsionis (ex Firewind).
After the trio had defined their musical goals, it was clear that more comrades would have to come on board the new band. What could be more obvious than to involve good friends like singer Marco Pastorino and bassist Luca Negro, both from TEMPERANCE.
Katsionis produced and mixed the album in his Sound Symmetry Studio in Athens. All musicians traveled from Sardinia to Greece especially for this purpose. “The Fragments Of Wonder” tends musically into the Power Melodic Metal corner without leaving out style-defining progressive elements – a bit comparable to early Stratovarius.

WONDERS “Pretender” single / video out today!
“Pretender” is the second song written by the band, a song full of pathos and emotions that involves the listener from the first to the last musical note. Its melodic and sometimes melancholic beginning evolves into a musical explosion when it comes to the refrain, giving way to a second part of an extremely Power Metalesque song with melodic traits, where the rhythm section and the vocalist are up and running strong.
We do recommend to give it a listen because we believe it is a beautiful song, that will make every fan of the genre around the world happy.

WONDERS – album trailer released!
Message from the band:
“Good & Bad” was the first song written for this album. From there we followed in the wake towards that melodic Power Metal that we have always loved, from the classics of Stratovarius and Sonata Arctica, to get to an even more modern mood like Beast In Black and Bloodbound. We are sure the fans of the genre will appreciate the speed parts, the choirs and the arrangements we have created”.
Their progressive melodic power metal album “The Fragments Of Wonder” will be released on November 12th, 2021.
WONDERS – The Fragments Of Wonder
During 2020, the brothers Pietro Paolo and Giorgio Lunesu of Even Flow started a new collaboration with producer and keyboardist Bob Katsionis, resulting in the birth of WONDERS – a new band in the European Melodic Power Metal scene.
WONDERS’ debut album “The Fragments Of Wonder”, produced by Bob Katsionis (ex-Firewind, ex-Serious Black, ex-Revolution Renaissance, Outloud, Warrior Path), is an absolute masterpiece, where the vocal melodies delivered by Marco Pastorino (Temperance, Cristiano Filippini’s FLAMES OF HEAVEN, Virtual Symmetry, ex-Secret Sphere) and the rhythmic power-/progressive metal perfectly executed by the band intertwine harmoniously, resulting in a fantastic sound experience for the listener.
Finally the artwork by Gustavo Sazes (Amaranthe, Angra, James La Brie, Dynazty, Firewind, Sirenia) adds the finishing touch to the concept of the album.
