Serious Black is back and has unleashed a fantastic album in Suite 226. A tougher Serious Black is just as good as the happy. With the combined musical skills of each member and a great set of songs, it’s no wonder this album is so good. This is a strong start for the year. I’ll be curious to see where this one stands by the end of it.
Urban had framed the touching story with mystery and fantasy, the story started with the song ‘With a Tip of a hat’ and then finishing with ‘One Final song’. Throughout the album you experienced the curse, the love, the despair and the desperation.
And I said “this Bob, this right here is gonna be our The Number of the Beast. It’s gonna be our Balls to the Wall. This is what this is gonna be. We’re gonna play this all the time.” Unfortunately, Bob is not with us. But you are right. I am pretty sure we will always going to play this song.
“Magic” is an album that comes with good melodic metal songs, taking the listener to a world of fantasy and imagination.
Serious Black are definitely one of the other bands high on my list that I am eager to check out, most of which is because of the incredible music found on Mirrorworld
I have to say that the showmanship of all three/four lead singers did all the groups justice.
To me that is more Euro Disney Metal. I don´t care really, but to me, we play Heavy Metal, that´s it. Everybody can call us what they want. I read some review on one of our albums way back, and that guy thought we played “Half trashy, soft doom metal” Ha ha ha.
Serious Black is one such group where instead of it feeling like either a bunch of talented musicians doing their own thing so it comes off as disjointed, or a group where one member clearly takes the lead and everyone else just plays along without getting to truly shine, it feels like a group that’s already functioning well as a team, with everyone getting to put their own ideas into the music. The result is an album that does draw influences from various other bands, but manages to take these influences and put them together in such a way that it comes off sounding fresh and exciting.
