Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

After the impressive introduction of their full-length debut, “Perpetually”, it was with great anticipation and enthusiasm that I dove into the new single from Brazil’s Rhevan. While it is not a 2nd full-length, still “Drunk With the Blood of Saints” is a fine continuation of what Rhevan began on their debut, and a release that should tide us over until they release full-length number two. The opening title song shows us that the band has not lost any of their talent for writing a good song, and the beautiful vocals of Dani Navarro are indeed intact as she is joined by Thiago’s extreme style. Next up is a cover of one of my all time favorite Judas Priest songs. It is a surprisingly faithful version of “Desert Plains” and one of the better covers I’ve heard in a while. Next, we reach back to their aforementioned debut with a cool acoustic version of “Bravery, Honor and Glory” and then a live version of “Thompson’s Lullaby”, before the orchestral version of “Drunk With the Blood of Saints” brings the EP to a conclusion after 25-minutes. Rhevan continues to impress me with their brand of Symphonic Metal and “Drunk With the Blood of Saints” is a fine and worthy addition to the bands repertoire.

Rating – 85/100
