Twins Crew Translation Review The Northern Crusade 2013

Dear community, you better brace yourself! ‘The Northern Crusade’, the second LP of the Twins Crew is out.

 

The Swedish serve diversified, catchy Heavy- / Powermetal with plenty of melody and recognition value. The songs feature a lot of details, great hooklines, and smooth solo parts. The multifaceted voice and the vocal lines from singer Andreas Larsson often remind me of Stratovarius. At the same time the necessary hardness degree is not falling by the wayside. 
The rhythm fraction is included and leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. You can hear the records joy of playing as well as that the band sounds fresh and original. There is not a single second of boredom. No filling elements or even flops are indeterminable. Fortunately the entire thing comes across completely empty of cheesiness . Even the obligatory (half-)ballad ‘Under the Morning Star’ is not overly sappy. The best songs to scan in order to get the best insight is the great song ‘Blade’, the popular song ‘Loud and Proud’ (this one causes the immediate urge to raise your fist and kill some beers), and the bouncer ‘Angels Fall’ (Maiden says hello) .
All the lovers of the genre should have this band noted down and definitely take the time to listen to it. The album is getting published July 30th at Scarlet Records. I, for one, can’t get this record out of my player anymore. Exceptionally brilliant Album!! Up the crew!

Toxic Holocaust "Chemistry Of Consciousness" 2013

Toxic Holocaust "Chemistry Of Consciousness" heißt meine persönliche Neuentdeckung. So ist das nun einmal, da forstet man Neuerscheinung für Neuerscheinung durch und plötzlich übertragen die Synapsen ein "Yes". Das aktuelle Album der US-amerikanischen Ein-Mann-Band aus Portland erschien am 25.10. 2013 via Relapse Records. Wir wären nicht metaltalks.de, wenn wir nicht wie gewohnt etwas später ins Glück greifen würden. Toxic Holocaust sind kein unbeschriebenes Blatt und treiben bereits seit 1999 ihr Unwesen. Joel Grind, Mastermind und Alleingänger spielte tatsächlich alle Instrumente höchst persönlich ein. Eine Ausnahme bilden die Session-Musiker, ohne die Joel live wohl keine Möglichkeit hätte seinen kultigen Metal der 80er Jahre live zu präsentieren.
