Roberto Tiranti - vocals,
review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
new Labyrinth album is considered by me like the album of
is the sixth cd for this band and the title of the cd, “6 days to
nowhere”, seems to be a perfect one to describe the travel of this
band…a Travel that began in 1991…
of all the band has changed label, and the new one is Scarlet Records;
Another important aspect to underline is that the album has been mastered
at “Abbey Road”: the historical studio in London!!!
wrong to say that this band plays the classic power-metal band…Nowadays
Labyrinth can be considered like a band able to create good
music…great songs with a personal style that gets inspirations from
the lyrics and the sensations, and in my opinion the band is mature to
become one of those famous ones in the world.
songs are made around the chorus , the melodies…The technique is used
only to give more depth to music…It can’t be different if we
consider that the band gets one of the best singers of the world metal
this album there are traces of nu goth metal Lacuna Coil style together
with Dimmu Borgir influences, and also great rock solos…all parts
mixed with awesome skill…
say…the wait is over….Please enter in the fantastic world of this
“ opens the album with a great power…A song characterized by a great
refrain…the typical power mixed to the sensitiveness of the chords
that gives a touch of passion in which Roberto can’t but give the
perfect approach with all his determination; Very great work made by the
next is “There is a way” and I can’t but admit how the band is
great to give emphasis to get inspiration from the great work made by
drums…An involving groove that starts the song, but the evolution of
it is full of surprises...the band shows how to create a great melody
into an easy arrangement full of technique and taste!
“Lost” is Dalia’s favorite song…I want to underline it, because she’s very expert in all music, and has immediately understood the great capability of this band to join the taste for the melody to something that can remind even shadows of Dimmu Borgir; Only one word…ORIGINAL!!!! I want still underline the great skill to insert many parts, also acoustic guitars…and great suspended parts!!! It’ easy to find the “theatre of music” in this song in which the atmosphere created belongs to the new Labyrinth era!
still to appreciate the taste for arrangement…Great song the next
“Mother earth” in which Roberto creates a great involving refrain
full of pathos into a super elaborated mid-tempo song concerning
which there’s also space for a 70’s style guitar solos, great
keyboards and in general
the ability to mix all with an unmistakable style!
great also when there’s a not elaborated song….It’s the case of
“Waiting tomorrow” in which Roberto is still the protagonist
of a great and unforgettable melody!
Gonella confirms his ability and in my opinion he’s the perfect guitar
for this band nowadays…He’s able to make great solos delivering
different approaches in according with the soul of the song played.
surprised me when decide to make the
Beatles cover “Come together”…If this is a way to wonder the
listeners, it can’t but be a good way…
my opinion the less inspired song concerning melody is “Just one
day” in which the refrain is not at the top, even if the band confirms
the ability to compose great rhythmic parts.
song that (in the begin) can
remind me of the previous album is “What???”
but there’s an incredible refrain in this song, in which the angelic
chorus is mixed into an emotional instrumental part ….It’s
is a touch of sweetness….Lacuna Coil , Evanescence...and
Labyrinth…yes…this song can’t but remind of pure gothic rock but
with the unmistakable Labyrinth style!!! A melody and an arrangement
that could have been a single for the already mentioned bands. GREAT!!!
same style for the next “Out of control” in which Roberto gives
emphasis to a good guitar riff….The refrain is another unmistakable
pure modern metal characterized by many sensations expressed by the
changes of time….The melody is not at the top, but this song
re-discovers that typical wildness of metal!!!
for me, the jewel of this album is the ballad “Smoke and dreams” .
Every time I listen to it I discover all the particulars of a great
not forget the past, the album is closed by one famous song of the past,
“Piece of time”, re-mastered, in which Roberto reminds us how he’s
good to give a very sensational interpretation!
don’t listen to this album thinking to find the typical power-metal
band….Labyrinth has evolved their approach to the music in a
