Another track I figure is about the world today is “Dark Reverie” which is another dark dramatic song that explore what the new Queensryche is all about. Songs about where we are today and what we are doing wrong to this world.
Thirty years ago, back in 1989 in the small town of Nässjö in southern Sweden four guys got together and formed a rock band. A rock band that would take them from Nässjö to Stockholm and eventually all around the world. That band is Backyard Babies and they are now releasing their eighth studio album called “Sliver & Gold”.
7/10 As we are getting quite used to bands declaring that ”this is the end” even if it seldom turns out to be a definite...
The backdrop in the shape of giant church windows with Ghost history in them if you looked closely, was stylish, the big stairs from the top of the stage to the floor was great. It let the Ghouls have their own kind of stage show but without taking focus from Cardinal Copia
Will it please the fans expecting a new “Images and Words”-album or will it please the fans hoping to listen to a new “Black Clouds and Silver Linings”? The easy answer is – None of them and both of them.
“The Heretics” picks up where “Ritual” (2016) ended and to be honest not much has changed. Rotting Christ deserves all respect and are both resilient and competent as a band, but this album doesn’t break any new ground or consist of any top notch composing.
Although it could have started of better, since the first song, “Last Man Standing”, begins with one of the most boring, ”tecno”-sounding, intros I have heard. If it wouldn’t have been for the fact that I was supposed to review the album I’d stop listening then and there and since the song, when it gets going, both presents killer riffing and some serious sing along choruses, it would have been a real pity!
“Electrified” is just that. A fast track that takes no prisoners. Should be a show opener in the future. “Love and war” works out to be a “classic” Last In Line track if you can say so about a band who´s just about to put out their second album?
I once saw a review on a concert where the journalist only wrote the letter z, like the whole concert was so bad you could sleep through it. This album is not good. It feels that it’s been written with no feeling, cheap and boring. Unfortunately.
Over all, “From Hell With Love” is the best “drink beer and put your fist in the air”-album of February, perhaps even the whole year.
