ALBUM ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
LABEL INVERSE RECORDS
OUT 2018 - MAY 25TH
OUR RATING 80/100
Dyecrest, finnish band on the road from 2001, is ready with a brand new album called "ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?", available from today via INVERSE RECORDS.
With a debut album called "The Way of Pain", released in January 2004, received very well by theaudience, and was followed by a full length European tour supporting W.A.S.P. together with DRAGONFORCE.
Everything seemed to be ok until the Sanctuary was faced with some financial problems and they got rid of all small bands. Couple of guys from Noise Records founded a new company (Dockyard1) and Dyecrest got signed to them.
The second album, called "This Is My World" (2005), was however a bit of a disappointment both to the band and to the company, as well it was to the audience.
Until 2008 the band kept doing gigs and writing new songs, but then they decided to go on a hiatus
It was in 2011 when guys from the band started to play together again, and in 2013, Dyecrest was “reformed”.
In the spring on 2016 Dyecrest started the recordings of the new album and the outcome is this great album.
The style of the album is multifaceted and surely contemporary.
The first song FADING/REACHING reminds us somethin' from bands as LORDS OF BLACK, name lyrics contemporary HM with modern flavour, powerful and inspired at the same time.
This band is able to slow down rhythms when indicated or to increase the speed whenever considered necessary.
Song after song the quality of solos seems to improve, the whole thing enhanced by vocals always ductiles and high-performing.
SURELY INTERESTING, FRESH AND MODERN HM TO SUGGEST!
