THE DOGMA: "A good day to
Promoted by Focusion.de
If you like an original mixture...
one year The Dogma returns with a new release !!!”Black Roses” was
an incredible album …a kind of mixture of melodic power and typical
modern goth mood nearer to To Die For, Soulrelic ecc…
the whole a little back step comparing to the first release, but the
band is able to keep a certain high quality that I wish can be the mark
of this band also in the future!
album gets good songs, and I admit that band in this album is able (in
most songs) to find an incredible originality; There’s an awesome
groove that mixes melodic hard rock 80’s style, and gothic metal (To
die For style)…try to listen to “In the name of rock”!!!It gets an
incredible refrain that will be the joy who needs a modern approach to
that typical 80’s style that remind of the early Motley Crue!!!
Street” gets the same mood , with an incredible gothic-power
approach!!! I underline the incredible good work of rhythmic session and
keyboard!!! There’s also space for a solo guitar that is 80’s hard
falls on the grave” is good but unoriginal song; a perfect
mixture between TO DIE FOR
and KAMELOT but with an approach far from originality!
space also for the epic- goth power of “I hate your love” that is
nothing special because it doesn’t find a great groove…A good
refrain but not emphasized by the structure’s song.
tears” is crying ballad that confirms the approach of the band to
the dark” gets a modern approach…a very Power metal song. It’s
about the most power metal of the album! It’s another mediocre song in
which I notice a good work made by the band concerning the arrangement
and the structure, but the groove seems not at the top!
in cage” is a good original song that mixes a modern riff guitar and a
modern approach to the composition with a gothic atmosphere created by
the piano of Stefano Smeriglio and by the decaying chorus!
from hell” is pure epic-power metal Rhapsody style!!! The band shows
us that is able to create a very powerful and technical song that gets
an great epic approach concerning chorus and the whole rhythmic
my pain” is an involving gothic-power song in which Daniele (singer)
shows us great ability to give emphasis to a good song that is
embellished by great epic-gothic chorus!!! Nothing to say about the
great work made by the band concerning the arrangement and the whole
construction of the song.
in my soul” seems another fair song that gets the same characteristics
of the previous one and nothing
adds to this good release that
is closed by the another touching ballad called “Christine closed her
eyes” that is characterized by a great and incredible orchestral
arrangement that seems to bring us into the magic of the previous
me the best song of this album is the only one I haven’t still
mentioned …and it’s the title-track…
admit that the band has realized a good cd, not all songs are great but
it is due to the homogeneous approach to the composition that it’s not
always perfect, concerning groove and original in this contest.
a couple of songs could have used for b-side . Great arrangement and
very good technique showed
by all members…Sometimes I don’t like Daniele’s sing that in some
parts could prefer more deepness (in my opinion)…Even if I admit that
he gets a great voice able to emphasize high tones.
you like an original mixture between epic-power metal with an evident
modern gothic metal approach, this album is just for you!
