Forever Still – “Breaking Free” EP (2013)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

Forever Still is a melodic hard rock band with a decidedly fierce metal edge. Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark the band was formed in 2009 and in the time that they have been together, they have already been receiving positive press and recognition. After listening to their debut 4-song EP, it is easy to see why.

So we begin with “The Key”. It opens with a bit of electronic music before the heavy guitars come in. My first impression is the singer Maja. She’s got a truly captivating voice. Near the end of the song comes this hell-ish screaming vocal part from Maja, which is quite impressive. “The Last Day” is a solid mid-tempo number with another bit of screaming from Maja. It is really disarming because it seemingly comes out of nowhere. Continue reading »

Amaranthe – “Massive Addictive” (2014)

Label: Spinefarm Records/Universal

Review by Tony Cannella

With their 3rd album, Sweden’s Amaranthe returns with their patented blend of hard rock, metal, metalcore and pop. It’s an infectious brew and one that you will hear in all its glory on “Massive Addictive”.

Amaranthe has steadily seen their stature grow with each album and “Massive Addictive” is sure to see that trend continue. From the opening track, “Dynamite” it is clear that Amaranthe are at the top of their game. The guitar riffs are crunchy and the ever present triple vocal attack is still there. Next we have the fantastic “Drop Dead Cynical” which the band has also done a video for. This – in my opinion – is one of the best songs the band has done and gets instantly stuck in your head after one listen. It is always cool how the band manages to toe the line between almost pop-like melodies with heavy guitars, electronic sounds and metal. Continue reading »

Ganglion – “Rising” (2013) [Type-A] MINI ALBUM

Label: Chiral Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Ganglion is an all female hard rock band from Japan. Their style is an eclectic mix of genres, but mostly focuses on hard rock and alternative which can be heard on the second mini album “Rising”.

The track “Rise” opens things and this is a pretty much straight-forward hard rock tune with a rumbling guitar riff. The next song is where the band delves into experimentation a bit. “Beyond the Screen” offers a bit of an electronic flavor at the beginning and has a funky bass line, but it also has its bombastic moments. The next track “Loser” has a punkish vibe to it and the following track “Wonderland” is a beautifully played instrumental with a techno/alternative sound. The EP is concluded with the hard rock and pop flavored “Tonight”. Continue reading »

Adrenaline Rush – “Adrenaline Rush” (2014)

Label: Frontiers Records

Review by Tony Cannella

From Sweden, Adrenaline Rush is a band with a sound that harkens back to the 80s. Not that it’s a bad thing, to the contrary it is always cool to hear a band that has an influence from the 80s, and as long as it’s done well – with power, conviction and integrity – than all the better. With their self-titled debut, Adrenaline Rush pretty much nails it.

Adrenaline Rush is an album that is sharply produced and comes fully loaded with a great sound and solid performances. Heavy guitar riffs abound, starting with the opening track “Black n’ Blue” and continuing on with the infectious video track “Change”. This one in particular is an instantly memorable song thanks to a catchy hook, a great guitar driven groove and an unforgettable chorus. Continue reading »
