One thing that’s definitely a selling point for me is vocalist Fabio Lione, who has to be the most prolific power metal vocalist in the world at this point.
While the two singers are clearly the main focus of the album, as one would expect, guitarist Simone Mularoni has managed to produce some great tracks here…
Down Below hallmarks these Lost Boys from Sweden’s return to the scene with extra thrown in such as creepy pipe-organs, John Carpenter-esque slasher movements, ominous church bells, and monk calls woven into the band’s death filled backdrop.
Rise To Glory is a triumphant return to a more melodic sound for Loudness
the matching of singer Age Sten Nilsen and Erik Martensson is a dynamic powerhouse of melodic hard rock songwriting talent.
Saxon proves that age and metal don’t have any correlation. Even after four decades…
If I had to describe Catharsis the album, Id call it an Oreo cookie. So much of the good stuff is in the middle so it is worth the time to listen to.
As if I wasn’t already blown away with the opening track on this offering it also uncannily features an amazing cover version of Fairport Conventions’ “Meet on the Ledge”.
Their creativity and unpredictable presentation are what makes many wonder what they will present next
Page #54 (Chemical Drive) continues the haunting atmosphere of this EP
