Luna Rise - Dark Days & Bright Nights Album Review!



Austrian Band, Luna Rise return following their successful and thrilling signature EP, "Smoking Kills, But Love Can Break A Heart" with new album, "Dark Days & Bright Nights", where they get to show off their unique melodic rock more-so plus with some extra surprises thrown in the mix..

Open song, "Demons Inside" is highly melodic, aided especially by the electronic sounds..it is fuzzy and delightfully dark all at once, helped by the fierce screams at the end! This is also one of the most diverse offerings, and for those not familiar with the bands sound, this will lure you in wonderfully!..

"Valentine" which has a great accompanying fiery emotive video too, has hard hitting memorable riffs and characteristic charming emotive vocals. This is a beautiful rock offering with a glorious layered sound, this is a must hear, which you are bound to 'adore'!






"Dancing With Tears In My Eyes" immediately grabs your attention with a very dramatic and gloomy intro, however it goes on to have a quite positive sound, which is delivered in style, through bouncy fun melodies, rhythms and effects!

"The Secret In You" changes the tone, sounding more sombre, in this powerful ballad that hones in on Chris's luscious flawless vocals, who uses largely low pitches here, which match the mood perfectly. Half way through we are graced with strong impressive instrumentation to add more impact and depth, which it achieves!

"Until The Stars Have Come" opens on a very atmospheric and 'spacey' vibe which is rather appropriate! It also adds a new dynamic, by featuring beautiful and strong female guest vocals, which compliment Chris brilliantly! 

Closing song, the greatly titled, "The Anthem Of The Night" is slower paced and alluring, especially with subtle glimpses of a dark presence. There is a lot of depth and richness engulfed in this soothing final contribution, which embodies all the 'dark' and 'bright' elements featured throughout the album, tying it all together in a nice grand luxurious package!

The album title fits perfectly with their sound and context..bursting with texture, finesse, and exceptional rhythms that will get you moving, and lift your spirits, even amongst the darkness, with their gothic gloom seeping marvellously into their sweetened infectiously melodic 'heart rock'! This album captures their distinctive style, but also shows of their more diverse evolved sound following their previous releases..they never disappoint, so let's wait in anticipation for the next release!

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…
