Rating: 4/5

While scanning the Spotify channels for some suitable holiday fare to add to the review archives I chanced upon this single that was released back in 2013 by the band Operatika Element and is very simply entitled “Merry Christmas”. The tune starts with a rousing wish and then continues its flow with positive energy and a wonderful grasp of the holiday mood that this season puts so many people in. After the first listen I found myself singing along with their lead singer Slava Popova who is accompanied by keyboardist Anna Dok. Keyboards are abundant in the tune and come care of both Dok and Boris Zaks while guitar work is the talents of Richard Fischer. Drums are not really something prominent in the tune based on its more contemporary vibe but they are delivered with skill by Yuri. This is without question a very warm and easily accessible holiday tune that puts you in the proper mood for the occasion and also one that could easily fit on numerous radio stations around this time of the year. The band also plays heavier stuff but this single is all about the wider audience and that is never a bad thing if you can pull it off successfully. Nice work folks, hopefully you’ll do another holiday tune in the future since you have the chops to do a good one and this is not so easily done. Readers who find the name somewhat similar to their ears should be aware that this is a newfangled lineup from the Symphonic Power Metal band Operatika.
