review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
Very far from HIM-clone bands.
just a great come back!!! I’m very proud to let you know that Joanne
&C. come back with an album full of feelings after the just fair “Anorectic”.
album sounds very “rock” …when rock means not a general
style…but just Negative-style rock…an album that even if is full of
influences gives to Negative an evident importance for what it
Killer represents the perfect mixture between the melody of 80’s
rock’n roll and a touch of sadness typical of the Finnish rock
is very far from Him-clone bands and it’s impossible no to be
impressed by a song like “An Ornament”
that can’t but remind the best White
Lion songs…A mid-tempo track that is full of passion thanks a
sensational refrain that is “an ornament” to the best 80’s melody
with the usual Negative touch…
single “Won’t let go” is a good song that gets an agreeable
refrain in which Joanne shows good vocal lines and it’s perfect for the
first presentation of this album…but the album can offer more and more….
Killer has very great killer-songs
like “Dead as we” that gets another great refrain in which the
decaying mood is perfectly mixed with 80’s hard rock.
of my favourite song is “Giving up!”…what a killer song!!!
There’s much creativity in this song in which the groove is built by a perfect rhythmic session and a great melody sung in a
fantastic way by Joanne…
I can say that everything seems ok
in this album, but if you want to find
something that is not at the top I can mention “Anna Simona” that
doesn’t get an unforgettable refrain even if gets the usual great
rock with the power of “Lust n’Needs” that gets another great mood
in which Larry
find a great riff supported by a perfect rhythmic session…
don’t want to forget the classic love metal song “Sealed” in which
Joanne releases a sensational performance…into a great dreaming
arrangements and production I can say that the band gets about the
top…A sound that gives value to every song…
the fair but not sensational “Anorectic”, Negative comes back with a diamond.
Without doubts if you like this style…you’re
welcome in the Negative world…with love and damned passion…
