Bluerose - Darkness And Light

Recommended Posts

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.

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
