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. “Black Crows in Me” and “My Darkest Side” are two excellent songs as well. Other highlights include: “Storyteller” and “Burning My Soul”.
“The String Theory” by Wormhole is pretty solid for the most part. I can’t say that I loved everything about it, but the good far outweighed the bad.
