Second Empire – “Second Empire” EP (2013)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

It’s good to see more and more symphonic metal coming from the U.S. lately. Pittsburgh’s Second Empire is one such band – and a good one at that. They have just issued their debut self-titled EP and after listening, I have to say that this band has a lot to offer.

The keyboard intro kicks off the opening tune “Everlasting” as the rumbling guitars join in. Lead vocalist Alex Lindsay Roth has a cool mid-range voice. This song really takes off in different directions with a strong orchestral part and a great solo. The next track, “Hold Me (‘Til We’re Both Dead)” gets started with a piano intro before the song steadily picks up the tempo. Still, this is a great mid-tempo song and one with an undeniably catchy melody and chorus. Continue reading »

Shiran – “Warm Winter Day” EP (2014)

Independent Release

Review by Alessandra Cognetta

Israeli band Shiran debuts with the EP “Warm Winter Day”, taking the first steps in the metal scene with a light but promising release. Shiran’s sound is a mix of classic heavy metal and pop tunes, revolving around the powerful voice of lead singer Shiran Avayou. “Warm Winter Day” is clearly still a developing stage of Shiran’s style, but it offers some promising elements.

From the inspired vocal lines of “Remain” and “Glint Of Light”, to the softer notes of the title track, which switch to a surprisingly heavier outro. The songs feel raw, partly for the best, partly showing that there is still some polishing to do, especially on the arrangement, which often comes off as blunt. Using a direct introduction doesn’t always work, as it usually gives off the sense that something is missing, Continue reading »

The Lust – “One Life Ago” & “Decomposition Deluxe” (2010/11)

Label: Wordlessness Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Hailing from Russia, The Lust plays Gothic Rock/Metal with a definite electronic/industrial edge. They formed in 2004 and that is the same year they released their debut album “Tangled”. Since then they have continued to release albums at a productive pace and their newest album “Decomposition Deluxe” is also their fifth, so they have been busy since their formation but one year before the band has released  ”One Life Ago” that is a compilation album made up primarily of rare tracks and alternate versions of some of their older songs.

The first six songs on “One Life Ago” are made up of unreleased tracks. The self-titled song starts things and right away I notice that their earlier stuff has more of an electronic/industrial edge to it. Continue reading »

Never Trust – “Morning Light” (2013)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

When it comes to female fronted metal, the awesome country of Italy has produced some of the best. To this point it’s been mostly symphonic, operatic, power metal (with a few exceptions). Well, the band Never Trust offers something a bit different to the mix. Their debut album, “Morning Light” has more of an edgy, punk-ish, alternative metal vibe.

The opening track “Fade Away”comes flying out the gate like a shot of adrenaline. For 11-songs and about 39-minutes, Never Trust maintains a consistent, straight-forward approach. The songs are aggressive yet still maintain a catchy, basic rock and roll vibe. “Worthless” is another powerful song. The third track, “Rebound” is a cool mid-tempo number which has a ready-for-radio vibe – and is therefore – one of the more accessible tracks we have here. Continue reading »
