the future….and for the present!!!
evolution of metal is here!!! November-7 comes from Switzerland and in my
opinion they represent what melodic metal is now!!!
A perfect mixture between electro, metal, and various influences: from
gothic to alternative and rock!!!
This band gets an amazing originality, thanks to the essentiality of a
good use of electronic parts that make the arrangements about
To understand what I say it’s sufficient to listen to the new single
“Parasite” and you can understand what I say…how to define their
music?....ok this is absolute modern metal …or modern future
metal!!!...where the electronic parts become essential to give groove
into songs that keeps predominantly a metal arrangement.
secret is to take the essence of their influencesand re-elaborate them in a very own personal way .
The sound can remind ofL’Âme
Immortelle, Oomph, Within Temptation, UnSun, Rammstein (guitars),
Evanescence, Lacuna Coil….and the list could grow more and more!
the opener “Her Name” I notice the intelligent use of electronic
loops mixed to metal and the involving by AnnaMaria that gets a perfect
timbre for this music…..
“In My Mnd” is still pure modern metal full of heavy guitars full
of modernism….the band doesn’t disdain melancholic approaches in the
refrain , even if, comparing to other bands, they like to find different
melodic solutions that can be nearer to alternative modern metal than to
melodic gothic metal.
“Angel” reminds of L’Âme Immortelle yet the band doesn’t
renounce to use power guitar distortionsfull of lows!!!
The pearl is the single
“Parasite”...a song that never get you bored!!! Power & melody
together into a fantastic song with a very inspired refrain that
can’t but remain in your head!!!!
The aching arpeggio of “Nowhere” sung by an inspired Anna Maria…comes
before the experimental “Amber Light” that show the ability of the
band to search for different solutions to create an album full of tones
by the intelligent use ofarrangements.
“Untie Your Hands” gets influences from
Lacuna Coil in particular the use of chorus in which Anna Mariashows amazing capabilities both for interpretation and skills.
It’s time for “In Love with Hate” that is made by the usual
“Falling Down” is a metal song in which alternative & goth are
perfectly mixed and it seems to remind of many bands…but no one in
particular….this is the secret of this band!!!
“World In Agony” is still more influenced by Lacuna Coil …even if
the band personalizes the sound through those arrangements that
evidence the use of electronic….this song gets another involving
The two bonus tracks are the radio version of“Parasite “ and the soft version of “In Love With Hate”.
A band for the future….and for the present!!! Great band, great
