Chock full of driving anthems and softer moments that will garner them an army of fans, the guests are also supplemented with one Travis Barker, best known as the drummer for Blink-182, who makes a handful of appearances as well.
I’m going to rate this one a 10. It’s the best rock album I’ve heard in a while. Buy it!
Sweet Oblivion is a project between former Queensryche singer, Geoff Tate and Italian guitarist, Simone Mularoni. Ryche fans who are wanting something from Tate that is reminiscent of classic Queensryche will like this. There are several songs that would have easily fit on Rage For Order, and Promised Land. For example, the first track, Once Again One Sin is one. An intense synth intro, with the style of harmony guitar and backup vocals that Ryche fans fell in love with. And, his voice sounds great.
This new MAVERICK album is a must-have to every Melodic Rock fan out there! If you like bands such as STORMZONE, JADED HEART, H.E.A.T., THE DEFIANTS, ECLIPSE, GOTTHARD, ONE DESIRE, PERFECT PLAN, INGLORIOUS, etc., then you do not want to miss this gem!
My issues with Vultures Die Alone are largely subjective, so anyone who enjoys Lassi Vääränen’s voice will most likely have a better time with the album than I did. On a purely musical level, I’d say it’s about on with Arion’s previous releases…
The lyrics completely contradict the happy feel-good vibe of the song deliberately because the end premise is that things are better when you are not with the wrong person.
Over the past decade or so, there’s been an increasing rise in metal bands who play a very melodic style that almost edges into pop territory, at times, usually leaning heavily on catchy vocal hooks and lots of cheesy keyboard effects. While bands like Amaranthe and Temperance are my favorite of this emerging style, other bands have come close to reaching them in recent years, with one particular favorite being Swedish melodic metal band Metalite.
Although EVERDAWN is not doing something completely different here, they are nevertheless bringing us a lot of sensational songs on their new album Cleopatra, so I can highly recommend you to check it out if this kinda music is up your alley.
Hold your horses and stop for a minute, because MARCH IN ARMS from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, United States is a superb sensational band you absolutely don’t want to miss, because they are playing high-class Melodic Metal like a mix between EVERGREY, PAGAN’S MIND, BALANCE OF POWER and ICED EARTH, with here and there some 80s melodic heavy rock/Hardrock influences as well.
