SHAMRAIN: "Someplace Else" shamrain
review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
"I've tried to become alive..."
we needed confirmation from this band, it's punctually arrived! After
that jewel of melancholic-dark emotional rock called "Empty
world Excursion", Shamrain comes out
with another pearl! This cd is getting darker and gloomier than
the previous one, even if the elements of their music are the same!
If it's necessary to find elements that can remind of others bands, it's
impossible not to notice a touch of the best THE CURE mixed to ANATHEMA in
"Still Aeon" in which the the
atmosphere is full of darkness. I underline a typical dark sound in the
guitars both arpeggio and main theme! Not amazing and less inspired "To
leave" that doesn't get that special feeling , but it
may be the only one uninspired song (in my personal opinion); the
refrain doesn't leave a mark and I prefer to let me fall in the dark of
pearls of this album are without a shadow of doubts : "A
woeful Song" , "Laren U Freht Ona " and
"The Empty Flow ". The first is a melancholic
poetry in which the band is still able to amaze me by an
unmistakable passion created by a sad refrain and a melancholic
vein that bring us away from reality...and near to their emotions , a
tried to become alive again
music seems to inspire a soundtrack for a romantic film, and Mikka
is perfectly able to sing with his unmistakable voice!!!! One of the
best singer for this style !!!! More than 6 minutes full of passion and
desperation and ShamRain by their soul are able to create feelings ...pure
feelings of gloomy romanticism.
The album is closed with the emotional "The empty Flow" in which an ethereal female vocal create a very special feeling into the funereal atmosphere of this song. 10 minutes of sadness and cry.
Matti Reinola & C. have realized another masterpiece of emotional music. This cd is another jewel for all those who demand emotions from music....Deep emotions.
