electro metal that hardly will be forgotten.
Massacre are one of the most original band since 2002. This 4th
album represents the maturity of a band that doesn’t find a perfect
collocation into a definite musical definition
: their style can be defined “Fairytale electro metal”, and this is
my personal mark to define their music!!!
The sound of keyboard is the essence of their music, and this new album
is a such a jewel full of great melodies in which the band uses to let
the listener dream thanks to the great and original use of keyboards and
synth that seems to inspired to a soundtrack for a fantasy children
Chibi is a good and evanescent singer that is able to give the right
touch to the music that in my opinion could be appreciated by gothic
rockers, emo, dark, but also who likes original dreaming rock music, in short they
could agree many different kind of listeners!!!!
“Dreaming music”…could be
another good and short adjective to describe songs like : “In the dark” in which
the magic atmosphere is supported by very heavy and modern
guitars…that gives charm to the music!!!
That’s the same for the follow one “Always” that is full of
keyboards and synth but with a predominant use of guitars that gives a
very powerful ambient!
Without changing the magic formula “Pale” bring us into a more
dreaming fairytale that is a midtempo song perfectly arranged and
supported by perfect chorus..
It’s still electro-musicwith
“Control” that is a song ready to be danced in all dark-goth
disco…a perfect song that is the perfect mix between electro and metal
music!!! Guitars, synth…keyboards and beautiful voice …all in a
get an unforgettable melody but it’s arranged in a great way; and
it’s another killer track ready to be danced in the right dark
disco…I still underline a great use of keyboards and guitar
effects…that gives value toan album that show me the unquestioned qualities of the band.
“Sideways” is another electro great song,whereas “Midnight” is more powerful in the structure but
always keeps the melody at the top!
The title track is powerful !!!The use of modern metal guitars mixed to
all the characteristics above mentioned of the bands gives a
confirmation of what this band is able to do!!! Great and original
music…ready to amaze everyone.
It’s still modern synth metal with “Sleepwalking” that gets a
great sound and I like the good solution founds into the use of rhythmic
parts that are different one from each other…at least the band tries
to find great solution to give emphasis to every composition by every
aspect : arrangement, melody,rhyming
The dreaming “Secret” closes an album that hardly will be
A great band from Canada…!!! If you want deep emotion from a great and
