Divine Invitation compilation album by Altaria was released on May 25, 2007. The compilation is a mid-price release made for fans. Due to the high demand and ongoing requests for the songs of the completely sold out first two albums of the band, Invitation 2003 and Divinity 2004, the idea came up to make the best five songs each available again, to introduce new singer Marco Luponero with two brand new songs and add another seven bonus tracks which originally appeared on the band's sought after. Invitation is the first full-length studio album from the Finnish power metal band Altaria. All tracks composed by Marko Pukkila. Unicorn 3:32. History of Times to Come 4:16. Ravenwing 4:30.

lets go baby
The 2007 collection Divine Invitation is an unusual collection of material from Finnish melodic/power metal band Altaria. The band, which at times has included members of Sonata Arctica and Nightwish, only had three full-length albums out at the time, and Divine Invitation only covers two of them (2003's Invitation and 2004's Divinity).

Divine Invitation has a hefty 19 tracks. Five of them are from Invitation and five are from Divinity. It also includes two brand new studio recordings - "Keeper of Mystique" and "Ball and Chain" - as well as the full 3-song Sleeping Visions and 4-song Feed the Fire demo releases. You can argue whether the band/label picked the best songs from the first two albums for this collection, but it does give you a good feel for Altaria's brand of melodic/power metal, and the new songs are well worth hearing. Even the demos are interesting additions.

Divine Invitation may be an unconventional "best of" collection, but it does make a good introduction to Altaria for new fans, and there are plenty of extras here to make it a worthwhile purchase for existing fans. I don't see much reason to complain about this one.
It should be noted that while the five GH's selections from Divinity are taken from that album, it appears the mastering of those tracks on this disc is a little different. If you compare the same track on both albums you'll notice that the version on Divine Invitation is a little blunted compared to the version on the original disc which just sounds crisper. I'm not sure if they trying to make the Divinity tracks sound more like the other five tracks from Invitation, but the difference is worth noting, However, in all honesty, even though I think Divine Invitation is worth owning for the demos and two, exclusive tracks ("Keeper Of Mystique" & "Ball & Chain") I honestly wouldn't suggest just nabbing this compilation in lieu of those two discs. Divinity and Invitation both have many great tracks and many of them aren't on here. That being said, if you do end up owning all three albums, you'll probably want to listen to the Divinity tracks from the actual album rather than this compilation.
