Samurai - The Truth, The Trust, The Love review





This is the debut release from the quartet who only formed back in November 2011, as they haven't been together too long you might think can their sound 'cut' it?!...


Opening track "Laying Here Waiting For The Lights To Take Me" has lots of interesting riffs and melodies, which make for a different and inventive sound. The effective dual vocals and varied combination of powerful clean and aggressive vocals are a definite highlight!

"I Get My Strength By Fighting For The Right Reasons" has strong stand out riffs and rhythms that are coherent and fast, that dance around with the elegance of two samurai warriors dueling! Great vocals again; there's alot going on without deducting from the overall sound. This song certainly has many 'strengths' and 'for the right reasons' to quote them!

"All I Know Is The Extent Of Everything I Don't Know" opens aggressively, in what is the heaviest offering so far. Again as seen in other tracks great use of different vocals all blending in together, making for an strong sound. The catchy hard hitting drums and riffs, makes this possibly the best track.

Lastly the interestingly titled, "Now All We Need  Is A Deck Of Cards" has a strong start with aggressive vocals and a catchy riff to back it, as well as nice clean emotive vocals. Got to 'hand' it to them they know how to 'play'!

This band will get through to the crowds like a samurai sword would cut through bone! This is a good strong debut with unique qualities shining through, imagine how their sound could progress further, as they have achieved this in such a short period!

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
