Wormhole – “The String Theory” (2012)

Label: Ghost Record Label

Review by Tony Cannella

So here is another band from Italy. They are called Wormhole and their debut is titled “The String Theory”. They combine straight forward metal riffs with melodic rock, and gothic metal. Prior to this full-length they have release two EPs.

For starters, the sound on “The String Theory” is almost crystal clear and perfect. Wormhole is fronted by the consistent vocals of Valentina Marvulli who does an excellent job as her voice fits in perfectly with the music. It isn’t too far out in front and it isn’t in the back. The musicianship is impressive as well; everyone also has their own share of the spotlight. “Your Mortal Remains” is a cool opener that starts off with a slower tempo, but it progressively picks up. “Autumn Leaves” has a straight forward metal riff and a killer melody.

High Fighter – “The Goat Ritual” (2014)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

High Fighter is the new project featuring ex-A Million Miles vocalist Mona Miluski. On their debut EP “The Goat Ritual” Mona is joined by former members of A Million Miles, Buffalo Hump and Pyogenisis to create a heavy as hell stoner/doom metal offering that is sure to please fans who like their metal heavy with a blues influence.

With the opening tune “2Steps Blueskill”, High Fighter heads straight for the jugular with a song that starts off heavy but only gets heavier. The next track “Breaking Goat Mountains” has a distinctive riff running through the duration of the song and the band doesn’t take the foot off the pedal. From there the band segues into “Black Waters” the best song in my opinion. Continue reading »

Aeverium – “The Harvest” EP (2013)

Label: Out of Line Music

Review by Tony Cannella

Aeverium is a male/female fronted melodic metal outfit from Germany. Their debut EP “The Harvest” was released last year and unfortunately it kind of slipped through the cracks, but it is good enough to get a review now. In watching some of their YouTube videos it is easy to see that this band has a lot to offer in both a studio and live setting.

The electronic flavor of the opener “Do You Remember” gets things going, before settling into a melodic metal groove. This is a strong opener and one that gets you pumped for what is to follow. The two vocalists work well together. The female singer Aeva Maurelle has a vocal style that is night quite operatic but she does possess a great range and the male Marcel Romer alternates between a gruff melodic metal style and a harsher vocal style.

Paramore – “Paramore” (Deluxe Edition) (2014)

Label: Fueled by Ramen/Warner Music

Review by Tony Cannella

Formed in Tennessee in 2004, Paramore first rose to prominence with their fantastic second album “Riot!” in 2007. That album was a great edgy punk pop record. With their self-titled 4th album – which was released last year – the band has maintained that edginess whilst also maturing as songwriters and musicians. Over a year after its release, Paramore has given their self-titled album the “deluxe” treatment. In addition to the regular album you can find 12 additional songs from bonus songs to alternate versions of songs to a bunch of live songs. It’s actually a really nice deal.

This is definitely a grown up more mature version of Paramore. The first part of this set is the 60-minute original album. Is every song great? No. Are the great songs great? Abso-freakin-lutely. Continue reading »

Aria Flame – “A World of Silence” EP (2014)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

Aria Flame is a neo classical metal band which formed in 2011. When you listen to their excellent debut EP “A World of Silence”, you would think that they come from Europe because their style is very European (thus the assumption that they hail from Europe), but Aria Flame is actually from Western Michigan, USA.

With a playing time of 35-minutes spread out over 6-songs, “A World of Silence” is longer than your average EP. “My Muse” is the first track and shows the bands talent for writing technical songs with a dark and dramatic atmosphere. Lead vocalist Aziza Poggi has got an incredible voice which encompasses different styles and nuances. She can do the operatic thing, but she doesn’t over do it and her voice has a ton of character, depth and emotion. “Realm of Hate” is a cool track which keeps a steady mid-tempo vibe.
