First of all they have a new singer, which I did not realise until I started listening to the new CD. The new singer voice is a little more gruff than the first. Little heavier musically and less polished production: yet still a good produced album. Similar to what Crazy Lixx did with their last album, which I liked. Album has a little of everything. Hard rockers, mid-tempo and your ballads. Also have new bass player. In style I would put it between the Crazy Lixx(Riot Avenue) & Fatal Smile's latest release.

I must admit, songwise this album turned out to be a hell of a lot better than I was anticipating. It's actually a real nice hard rock disc, but the production is a real letdown for me. Like you say, it's not like it's really poorly produced, but it is, like you say, unpolished and just sounds a little half-assed to me. With a great, tight production I dare say this album would be in the mix for my top 20 this year. The combo of the two tunes 'Daughter of the reaper' and 'Light of the candle' should be one of the best one/two combo punches of the year. Two really sweet hard rockers in a row, but the production really lets the band down on these songs - strips them of the balls they should have.

 

Anyway, here's my review. Add probably at least another 10% if it was well produced:

 

1. Into The Wild - good hard rocking opener - production could be tighter, but a good song - 7.50

2. Dead End Street - another good hard rocker… better than the opener - 8.00

3. Lovers Lane - solid hard rocker, but not great - 7.25

4. When Darkness Falls - pretty damn nice ballad - not perfect, but some great parts - 8.00

5. Sinner - solid rocker - 7.00

6. Make It Last - good solid ballad - nice - 7.50

7. Addicted - nice balladic rocker - cool tune - 8.00

8. Daughter Of The Reaper - very cool hard rock tune - 8.50

9. Light Of The Candle - another pretty killer hard rocker - shame the production isn't a little crisper - 8.75

10. Stay - nice ballad - 7.50

11. Shadowland - solid hard rocker - not the album's best, but solid - 7.25

 

 

TOTAL SCORE - 77%

    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-  
    • Can't you see that you're lost without him?      
    • If somebody could stop covid for me, that would be great.
    • Yeah, def HammerFall vibes in the chorus. And, yeah, they kinda seemed outta place. I don't necessarily love the song. It was okay. Hopefully there are better tracks on the album, otherwise, to quote Gleonard, "Utter waste." ;}
    • The band press release says they've changed their name to Rain City. The article says they've changed their name to Rain City. But it's actually Rain City Drive. Really seems like everyone was on board. ;}
    • That HammerFall-ish gang vocal chant thing in the chorus seems a bit out of place to me. Otherwise, sounds decent enough.
