Calatrilloz - Single Reviews







 

Calatrilloz are a London based concept band whose music is composed around a tale, "The Marionette's Theatre", where a bunch of supernatural beings ( the band members) search the world for the possessed string puppets and their power within. By infusing a story, and their images/disguises (which don't come across as a gimmick but rather add to the mystery and intrigue of this interesting unique act) they have created their Operatic blend of Symphonic Metal and Progressive Rock!

The band have been around for a while now but they are back with two new singles ready to draw in a new crowd!..

The first new single is, 'Lords Of Misery' which has a dark and dramatic theatrical opening...as you might expect! It has creepy vibes which are created through the use of superb and varied vocals backed by a massive sound through the instruments, which cleverly give the impression of tension rising with a dark brooding sound. The song picks up the pace making for a very dynamic and diverse song with lots of tempo changes and effortless transitions!

 



The second new single as above, 'A Glimpse At A Fool's Destiny' has an eerie opening like a horror soundtrack and quite fittingly tells a tale of a boy named Johnny and his journey to hell! There is a great elaborate mix of instruments which are heightened by Zahyin's high vocal delivery (and effective dramatic backing vocals) along with complex instruments to accompany. Again the tempo changes help unravel the story and demonstrate the bands technical ability and musicianship, making you hang on to every mood and note change..this one will draw you in!

This theatrical act really strive in their impeccable composition and use of progressive elements and heavy metal, all of course with a delightful and dark flair of creativeness through their operatics! Each song you can immerse yourself in the story and envision it - and soon you will be able to witness it with you own eyes as let's face it these songs are begging for visual performances! The band have released a teaser for their upcoming video which you can see below!

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

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…
