ALBUM DEAR DARK (EP)
LABEL Sliptrick Records
OUT Feb 9, 2021
OUR RATING 80/100
DEAR DARK is the second release from New Jersey metal project Amoriello and follows the 2018 self-titled debut.
The new release features as special guests, among others, Carlos Zema (Immortal Guardian, ex-Outworld).
The first shot is the title track with high-pitches vocals, grandiloquent keyboards and heavy riffs, followed by THIS BURNING EVIL that reminds epic intensity of RJ DIO.
THIRTY FOUR STRINGS OF FURY grows second after second with a gorgeous series of solos and a tasty eighties atmosphere.
MAGIC WAND (ABRACADABRA) sees vocals and keyboards as starring before MILAN’S DREAM, with a soft arpeggio and fancy vocals, ends in the best way this great album.
