Bluerose - Darkness And Light

From Dangerdog:

 

Yet another Italian band to consider at the end of 2013: Bluerose and their second effort, Darkness and Light. They're also another band that straddles or blurs the line between melodic hard rock and heavy metal.

Bluerose:: between the pillars.

The rock groove is definitely apparent, but it's clearly wrapped up in the heaviness of metal, notably in the riffage, strong drums, and sharp guitar solos. The guitar work of Giuliano Soranno is quite impressive for the simple reason that he doesn't try to get clever. He seems to know that his leads should both contribute to the whole and surprise and thrill the listener's ears when they're brought to the forefront. Exceptional examples of this is found at the end of Leaving You and Darkness and Light. Another Bluerose strength is the voice of Riccardo Scaramelli; he's simply a rock/metal good singer, melodic and clear. Even better, he doesn't fall into the traps of either dirty or screamo vocals which occupy much of modern rock.

But there's nothing really modern about Bluerose. This is basically straight up classic melodic metal with a rock groove, and that's a good thing. Some may be disappointed by the length of the album, eight songs at about 37 minutes, when others are pushing 10 in the 45 minute range. Yet there's much to be said for sleek efficiency. Besides the aforementioned songs, check out both On My Way and The Land of the Light. Recommended.

Fuck! I thought this was going to be someone finally posting an announcement that the 3 Blue Rose albums were finally going to be issued on disc! these bands need to either hire someone, or do themselves, but they need to research their band name before they decide to post it and use it, fuck, now I got all worked up for nothing.

I just noticed this, and wanted to add my 1 cent of shame,

 

"They're also another band that straddles or blurs the line between melodic hard rock and heavy metal."

 

Maybe true, but they're also another band the straddles or blurs the line between originality and ripping previous bands in history off! and following another recent trend, I am seeing become more and more prevalent, is that of the extensive research done before picking the band name, I mean really it's not that hard to do, and with the invention of the internet, there really is NO! reason for it at all, we saw it in the mid 90's, when rap artist started snatching up the "coolest and most gangsta names" and we were left hesitating before we ordered that new Lynch Mob CD on our import list, at least they started adding the very sophisticated and clever DA Lynch Mob and letting us all sleep better, they all began to do this, a good majority of those bands, were R&B bands, and they simply altered a letter or two, thus making it easy to differentiate between the 2, I have recently seen a plethora of bands(posted on here) who carry the same name as a previous band, and my initial reaction was believing the post was about the original band, upon reading and discovering it wasn't, It kind of pisses me off a little, not because of any personal reason, simply because it is kind of disrespectful, I dont care who the band was, if they sucked, or what, theres just something about using a name, that has already been taken, has somewhat of a following, and saying fuck them, our music and band is more important then that band, we are more deserving of the name, so we will use it, Im sure im way off, but thats just my feeling.

    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION!
