review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
time for this goth-power rock band Finland! Entwine don’t need
presentation …and this album comes out after the single of
2005 called “Break me”. The band sounds very different from
the past: DieVersity was the album that made Entwine a band different
from those typical goth-romantic ones, like Negative, Him etc….If we
remember the first two albums, they were very romantic goth …but in
2006 I can admit that Entwine is a "new" band that keeps only
the essence of the past!
are only a shadows of romantic-goth,; romanticism is always the
characteristic of the band, but the sound is absolutely powerful and
nearer to alternative metal!
title track is a power rock song characterized by the usual melancholic
approach in which Mikka shows his sadness….A great song to begin!
of alternative power metal in “Chameleon Halo” in which Mika &
C. finds a great refrain into a very powerful riff!
of you” is pure goth-power rock! A song that I’m sure will be the
joy of all fans in live shows! The melody is the essence of the song in
which the band is able to find a great arrangement …
is characterized by an unforgettable refrain that is ready to enter in
your head…The song gets an easy compositive approach but it doesn’t
matter…the groove is great!
is alternative rock with a touch of grunge and modern rock! Good
interpretation but nothing original….The song is boring !!!
gets more than a shadow of PUNK ROCK!!!!A mediocre song in which the
band is not able to find a great groove…Avoidable for a band like
is another song written similar to “Oblivion”! Pure modern
claustrophobic power rock! This song is another unoriginal composition
very far from the good quality of their great songs!
serenity” improves just a little bit but when the band tries to
abandon that typical depth that is the essence of the band…Some songs
seem very far from the good quality and absolutely without soul! The
band is trying to find a mix between the modern metal nearer to bands
like StoneSour or Alter Bridge and the typical romantic approach of
their old albums, and sometimes they are able to create something great
like ”Break Me” that is the single and in my opinion is the best
song of this album! A very powerful rock full of decaying romanticism
that perfectly represents what the band is now!
Life” closes well this album; Another decaying song characterized by a
great atmosphere that seems the mark of this band now!
conclusion I admit that there are many aspects to improve ; The search
for a modern sound sacrifices their deep essence that the band is
keeping …and there are songs that will not leave a mark, but this
album (like the previous one) signs the confirmation of a band full of
personality able to try new ways to arrange their emotions!
