Alestorm - No Grave But The Sea Review

Alestorm - No Grave But The Sea 

Set sail together because everyone's favorite rumsoaked pirates are back.
ALESTORM has returned to the seven seas with treasure in sight.
No Grave But The Sea is the band's latest pearl, and the band's 5th full length album.
So Sail away into the blue horizion because Alestorm is taking you on a conquest over the seven seas for a treasure hunt.
No Grave But The Sea is as rumsoaked as it is well written. The band makes a triumphant return to claim their gold back with songs about getting drunk and sailing. The band really knows how to make a solid performance. As we dive deep into the band's new stories, we can happily say that the sound of ALESTORM, as we know it, has not changed a bit.
It's in fact one of the most unique bands of today.

Pirate metal or folk metal you name it. They've been called everything.
No Grave But The Sea is no doubt the band's finest work since Captain Morgan's Revenge.
With their Jolly Roger theme and melodic keybords they really bring they really come out stronger in this album. Important is also that they never let go of their wonderful sing along melodies.

Christopher and his crew of the damned is back again on the seven seas for a new treasure hunt. Every track of the album is just pure gold. With the Opening track really sets the mood for this record. With the 10 songs Alestorm manages to live up to the anticipation of the fans with this album.
ALESTORM'S music has so many elements that its really hard to put to words what really makes them stand out. Is it the endless keybord melodies or the unique voice of Christopher Bowie and his self irony that makes the succsess.

Fire Up The Canoons and all hands on deck. NO Grave But The Sea is out May 26 on Napalm Records

In Reverence - The Selected Breed 2017 review

In Reverence - The Selected Breed 2017

IN REVERENCE started their musical journey in 2010 with Filip and Oscar being the only members wishing to form something unique within the extreme Metal Scene,
But not until September the band had a complete line up.
They brought in the talented musicians Sebastian Wedholm (guitar), Pedram Khatibi Shahidi (guitar) and Roni Ivonen (bass). After a few months they released their first demo called "Necrosis" in 2011. Later they changed the name to IN REVERENCE.

The band was originally inspired by deathcore bands, and death metal, but the sound came to life but with a totally new atmospheric sound unlike anything heard before.
In 2011 Roni Iivonen decided to leave the band after the demo was done. He was replaced by Dennis Morgun for the recording of the debut EP called Hallucination, a combination of the demo sound and newer material.

Only a year after the "Hallucination" EP, the band started to have difficulties again. as Dennis and Sebastian quit the band, leaving Pedram, Oscar and Filip behind on the vessel. The trio remained united and decided it was in the band's best interest to change their musical direction to a more death metal oriented style.

Pedram took on the new role as songwriter and lyricist for the next release.
The next big break for the band was The Selected Breed , a stomping return for the band, that really brought the hard work together and introduced Pedram as songwriter and lyricist.
The Selected Breed was the result of years of hard work and military discipline focusing on work together.

Combining dissonant guitar riffs with atmospheric melodies with an oriental touch , The Selected Breed could be compared to bands like Nile, to describe
their vibe.

The whole album sings with joy in the ears of the listeners from the first song. with heavy riffs and infuriating drums making their way to a new era for metal. Without becoming a cliche or too scared of going a different path , In Reverence shows skills and perfections in their art.
The 9 songs flow on well and together with the magic artwork of Billy Lundevall and Patrik Tegnander . The Selected Breed is an album that will last a long time and should not be mistaken for some newcomer. With a good mixture of Death metal and adding a good ambience with the touch of atmospheric vibe The Selected Breed will for sure be an album that I can see making its way to the top lists of 2017.

If you still haven't preordered the album after listening to the two amazing singles I am suprises me.  

The Selected Breed Is OUT WORLDWIDE May 26th on Non Serviam Records

Funeral Tears - Beyond The Horizon (2017) - Review

Band: Funeral Tears
Album title: Beyond The Horizon
Release date: 13 April 2017
Label: Satanath Records (Rus)/Cimmerian Shade Recordings (USA)

01. Close My Eyes
02. Breathe
03. Dehiscing Emptiness
04. I Suffocate
05. Beyond The Horizon
06. Eternal Tranquility

Funeral Tears started in Tomsk, Russia during December 2007 and is probably best known as a solo funeral doom metal project by Nikolay Seredov (founder of bands like Стахановцы (Stakhanovite) and Taiga). Melancholic melodic music and lyrics seems to define what this man is all about and represent Nikolay at different periods of life, his struggle for spiritual balance, and already with two mighty full lengths behind their back Funeral Tears has made a name inside the underground funeral doom scene.

Now we have the pleasure of enjoying and hearing the latest work of Funeral Tears, the new album Beyond Horizion is more than just beautiful slow drone riffs. Many people find funeral doom or doom metal in general to be very tedious and boring, but they miss the whole point of the slow ambient feeling, the means of provoking someones feelings, and we have been very lucky this past year with great gems from many doom bands, and its great to see that Funeral Tears are among them.

The album is clocking in at near an hour, creates the aura of getting buried into the grave of intense depression and is filled with enchanting and mesmerizing tracks with insanely breathtaking melodies. While the sound is described as funeral doom one may argue over the tempo because it's a bit to high for the songs to pass through as just a typical funeral doom. In my opinion it falls more in the doom metal scene yet mixed with some dsbm vibe over it, there's kind of a Forgotten Tomb vibe present to the whole album. I think that it's nice to have a bit of a mixture thrown into the game.

While the tracks move on, the more we get into the album the more you start to really see the whole world of Nikolay reveal itself, the misery, the darkness and the melancholic thoughts that pass through ones mind. People may say that despair is the last thing that leaves us, however in some cases that might be true. As for this it's litterely burying you underneath a rock of concrete as the songs are presented in a beautiful yet morbid way. 

With many insertions of melancholic classic guitar interludes the songs take a step into even darker paths of life. Funeral Tears may not be the most typical funeral doom band, but the music is full of agony and remorse. Like I said, many can argue over the real funeral doom part of the album, it's still there but the songs are very versatile that it does kinda leave you wondering if its more of dsbm band that draws doom influences while some songs are more directly pure funeral doom, and others tend to be more towards the more standard doom tempo, the album after all for sure doesn't leave you disappointed.
