Armonight – “Tales from the Heart” (2012)


Label : Ravenheart Music

Review by Tony Cannella

From Italy, the Gothic metal band Armonight formed in 2008. In 2011 their debut “Suffering and Passion” was released. The band has recently signed with Ravenheart Music and has unleashed their newest offering “Tales from the Heart”.

The narrative intro “Into The Deepest Dream” kicks things off and leads us into “With Your Knife”. Armonight also made a pretty cool looking video for this track, which can be viewed on You Tube or their official site. There is a lot to like about this band. The songs are melodic, accessible and vocalist Sy delivers her lines with a great deal of passion and emotion.

She is definitely not of the operatic variety; instead she stays in a mid-range style that compliments the music perfectly – which is always a huge plus. “Dancing With Ghosts” has an up-tempo, symphonic sound and would make a great choice for the second video, in my opinion. “Always By Your Side” starts of as a beautiful, piano dominated ballad before picking up the tempo and quickly becoming another favorite. Other highlights include: the bombastic “I Will Be There”, “When You See Me Cry” and “Coraline”. If “Tales from the Heart” is any indication, Armonight is a band that delivers on all cylinders. “Tales from the Heart” is a good second effort and is an album full of satisfying, heartfelt and passionate songs.
