Selene – “Among the Frozen” EP (2013)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

The symphonic metal band Selene hails from Northern Ireland and was formed in 2013. They have recently released their debut EP “Among the Frozen”. The band blends an atmospheric approach with crunchy riffs and operatic vocals to produce a 6-song and 24-minute slice of symphonic heaven.

“Peace of Mind” is a fast paced up-tempo of an opener with a bit of an old school Nightwish vibe. “Till the End” begins with a heavy riff and the song quickly develops into a melodic metal tune and one of the best on this EP. “End of it All” has a moody vibe going for it and it also features male vocals provided by guitarist/keyboardist John Connor.

Nene – ElupiA (ENG Version)

Interview by Alessandra Cognetta
Translation by  Yoshiaki Miyasaka & Alessandra Cognetta

ElupiA is a very unusual band. From the mysterious and evocative name, to the line-up, with two keyboardists, this Japanese band provides a unique musical experience, mixing elements from symphonic metal, orchestral pieces, and avant-garde music. They published their first mini-album, “WILDERNESS”, last year, and the new single “Departure” is about to be released in these days. We had the chance to interview Nene, the lead vocalist of the band and a soprano with a very distinctive and original singing style. She told us a lot about ElupiA, her own experience as a singer and her opinions on the situation of theatres, both in Japan (I’m sure some of you are familiar with the words “Nō” and “Kabuki”) and in Europe (Opera). This is the first interview (of a series, hopefully) we are proud to present in two versions: English and Japanese! Continue reading »

Teardown – “Drowned in Your Tears” DEMO (2004)/”Cold Rooms” EP (2006)/”Signs of (In)Humanity” SINGLE (2011)

Independent Release

Reviews by Tony Cannella

Released in 2004, “Drowned in Your Tears” is the first recorded output from the Finnish band Teardown. Even though this is their first attempt, their sound is rawer and the production is not as good as what came after. Still, for fans of the band it is an interesting look at how Teardown started and has progressed over the years.

“Stolen by Sorrow” opens things on an up-tempo, energetic pace. “Iced Heart” is a bit slower and has a heavy, doomy quality to it. “Dust” is next and opens up acoustically, like a lot of the bands material as the heavy guitars join in. Even though the final track, “Drowned in Your Tears” opens with a slower pace it quickly speeds up and shows what this excellent melodic metal band is capable of. Continue reading »

Elizaveta – “Hero” EP (2014)

Label: Flower Army Records

Review by Luisa Mercier

Elizaveta is a Russian, USA based singer songwriter that I already come to love and appreciate with her previous record “Beatrix Runs”. She plays an elegant, classical influenced adult pop that is paired with beautiful videos like the one for “Dreamer”. After leaving her former record label, she recorded this new EP and as always it is very high quality music. The record is opened by the title-track, a beautiful song with a magnificient strings background crowned by her sweet, vocals. I was really pleased when I got to listen to it for the first time and it just confirms her talent. “Red Balloon” is quite different on the other hand. She was used to play piano based music, quite slow paced, while here she tries an electro track with a clear dance vibe, very cheerful and happy.  Continue reading »

Blues Pills – “Live at Rockpalast” EP (2014)

Label: Nuclear Blast

Review by Tony Cannella

Blues Pills is a Swedish, French and American combo who plays blues based hard rock. They are currently signed to Nuclear Blast and they are certainly not a band you would associate with the label. Instead of the out and out metal-ness that we have come to expect, know and love about the Nuclear Blast label, Blues Pills provides a nice departure with a more basic blues rock style. They have already released one EP entitled “Devil Man” and now they return with EP number two. “Live at Rockpalast” presents the listener with 4-songs and 15-minutes of the band live on the famous German rock program.

The rocking instrumental “In the Beginning” starts us off and then gives way to the cocky swagger of “Black Smoke”. Continue reading »
