review by Lisa "Blondie" Hieta-Larsson____
Irish metal band have been around since 2001 and Madness
to our Method
is their debut. As such, this strong album really has impressed
me a lot!
could just as well have been made by a big metal act in the 80ís/
first 90's, their sound is back to
classic Heavy Metal, nevertheless with a great deal of
modern authority. I believe that they will for sure succeed and prove
that you donít always have to come up with something new and different
to reach the top. Great musicians, a solid voice and an effective
strong rhythm- section: good material , well enough.
songs are quite long but it never gets boring. They are always presented
with the same fire and enthusiasm. Take for example Prisoner
of time, which is about 9 minutes of pure action. The
only weak track in my opinion is the instrumental one that feels a bit
pointless and doesnít quite fit together with the feel and sound on
the rest of the album.
sound is sometimes a weak spot when the drums become noisy and gives you
the impression of them beeing closed up in a closet. But
these complaints all seem like very small things not worth arguing about
when the rest of it is as good as it is!
definate favourite is Unstoppable Motion
which has all the necessary ingredients to make it a number one.
you curious now? I hope so because you better have your ears and eyes on
this band since my guess is that they will be one of the next bands to
conquer the Heavy Metal world! Just give them some time....
