Arrangements that always find good
The french band comes back in this 2012 with an album
that confirms the quality shown in the previous releases….
The sound can be near to alternative metal with shadows of gothic and
metalcore in the background and, sometimes, in the general mood…an idea of
sound that seems fantastic but that needs to be improved.
The use of French creates a very interesting contrast between the
powerful music and the delicate Virginie’s voice; The band doesn’t
disdain little influences from folk …and the add value given by this
sound mixture is the characteristic of the band… I underline the power of guitar
riffs and the very hard sound created that never goes to honeyed moments, even if sometimes they open to melodic parts and not always they find
the right groove…
The real qualitative leap in my opinion hasn’t been done….Even if they
bang hard, and are able to create good parts in the song, in my
opinion they can still improve for what concern the search of a style…
There are a lot of hard parts supported by screaming that sometimes
seems to be forced in according to the songs and in my opinion all the
parts of the song doesn’t come together well….
On the other side I underline the perfect arrangements that always find
good solutions, as well as the production …powerful and perfect for this
The guitar riffs are always near to alternative metal and the best
aspect that this band puts in evidence is the search of originality in
which they never lose the essence of the band, but, as mentioned above,
they try to go to modern core…to gothic…to alternative rock…but this
variance must be improved…and for me the band gets all the
characteristics in order to
realize the qualitative leap….
The songs that can be mentioned are:L’ASPAHLTE,QUELQUE PART and L’ECHO; The first is an atmospheric song that
seems a mix between Bjork and a folk band….the second one
is a melodic metal song in which
the band is able to find very good solution for what concerns
instrumental variations …L’ECHO is a suggestive suite in which Virginie
shows an incredible pathos...
In conclusion a good album …but the road to an excellent one is still
