New album out August 28th
photography by Toni Härkönen
return of Poisonblack sees the light after 3 years from the debut album!
I admit that this cd is much more better than the previous one, both for
the quality of the songs and also for the sound!!!
doubts the band abandons the love-metal shadows of the debut Escapextacy,
it’s evident the search for an atmosphere full of darkness but
characterized by a powerful and more original sound!
vocalist is Ville Lehiala , and of course he shows the already known
style that can’t but remind of Sentenced!
a shadow of Sentenced in some of the
songs of this album, but in my opinion Poisonblack shows better
ideas concerning the music in comparison with the latest
Sentenced albums; The guitar riffs are various and at times the band is
able to create a gothic-dark atmosphere using a very powerful guitar
style that sometimes goes to nu-metal and death!!!
passion of the band is into songs like “The darkest Lie” that is
pure symbol of the essence of the band: Deep, powerful, obscure!!!!
is another pearl in which the band finds the same elements and the great
groove; Still another unforgettable one for all dark-metal fans!
unforgettable song is “The living Lie” that closes the album, in
which , again, the great melody makes of it another
involving song for all those who need a powerful music full of feeling!
are a lot of agreeable songs that can’t but be appreciated by all
those who would like to listen to a kind of new Sentenced; “Hollow be
my Name “ and “Love controlled Despair”
are good songs made by great melody and great guitar riff!
There’s also the nice ballad “Pain becomes me”, an acoustic
song in which the band is able to find a fair depth!
are a couple of not great songs like the “Never enough” that seems
not to find a good groove and it’s evident that was composed without
the right inspiration and also “Nothing else remains”, which
is the title track….a song without that passion
which otherwise characterizes most of the songs of this album!!!
important to underline the great production, in which I notice a perfect
arrangement characterized by a great sound made concerning drumming and
a wonderful guitar distortion!
