review by Sara "Shadow Lady" De Vita____
good test for Convergence with their Points Of View.
band was born in 2001 from the will of the guitarist Giacomo Mambriani,
ex-Color Behind The Emotions, short-lived melodic-death metal bands.
to the contribution of Giordano Occhi (producer and owner of Sonora
Studio) the band produces in March 2004 Points Of View; a quality album
indeed that gives emotion and a shocking musical energy charge.
post metal of this band is developed and grown during the whole album,
starting from the splendid and fluid Bleed, to pass through
Strike The End (a bit too on the Korn side) to reach the
intriguing Listen: a captivating song, mainly in its firm
yet smooth and rounded riffs.
good the rhythmic performance in Six Feet
Under and Always The Same:
emotional music that manages to move in the temporal tightness of few
minutes, equally managing to dedicate to our souls
touching and yet sharp moments.
is the voice of Palladini that, stout, manages to pour strong emotions
in the chalice of the human soul.
Of View is a bet that Convergence wage upon both them and the audience,
too often maybe for laziness or snob attitude never stops to
listen what the emerging bands have to say (musically speaking),
remaining mesmerized by musical propositions of bands nowadays
consecrated to the history of music.
CD goes on with Breath, a song
that lightens up our senses apparently dozing on the melancholy of the
previous Always The Same.
and propositive, this song is a firm step on the aggressive will of this
band of heterogeneous and yet fully merged ideas.
Memories and Silent dress up with nostalgic
melancholy, gifted with sweet sensations due to brief yet driving
is the electronic intro of Silent
that resembles the first Rammstein: a song that leaves us with a gaping
mouth and allows us to taste a very modern and cured sound.
album closes with Nothing Else and Train To Leave,
ending with elegant fierceness a very good work.
