At The Gates - To Drink From The Night Itself

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

“At War With Reality” marked the returned of AT THE GATES and this was great news from the get-go. And it is totally understandable that it was also an album that had to hit all the right spots as it had to re-introduce the band to a brand new audience. In hindsight, I think that album was made following a specific recipe and for this, had a squeaky-clean production, so after the initial enthusiasm of having the Swedes back, the LP faded away. Having this mind, one should understand how crucial “To Drink From The Night Itself” is; will AT THE GATES follow the classic recipe? Will this be another day at the office? Add to this, the departure of Anders Björler and you have a nice riddle to solve with the only thing left to do is drop the needle on the wax...

Tomorrow’s Outlook - A Voice Unheard

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It was clearly announced that TOMORROW'S OUTLOOK's second album “A Voice Unheard” would be a concept one. With that, I thought I'd start with listening without digging into the story and see where it lands. And by all means, the songs work really well as stand-alone too. There is some outstanding songwriting on this album as it includes a lot of fines and details which makes it more and more interesting after each spin.

Thanallian - Between Worlds

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I was quite surprised when Anna Pavlů started to sing in EP opener “We Know”. It wasn't what I was expecting. On the other hand, I don't know what I was expecting either. Her voice leans more towards Goth, female fronted modern style than what I’d expect from the melodic Heavy Metal Czech THANALLIAN as they describe themselves. A matter of interpretation and perception, of course.

Axel Rudi Pell - Knights Call

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Axel Rudi Pell, the master of melancholic guitar-melodies, strikes again on “Knights Call” and delivers yet another batch of the smooth Heavy Metal that has become his trademark sound over the years. And it is a pleasing start of the album with the snappy “The Wild And The Young” which holds a catchy chorus and in general a very good vibe. Johnny Gioeli's voice has that nice harshness and rasp to it which charges the melodies even more.
