BAND Death SS
LABEL LUCIFER RISING
OUT Oct 29th, 2021
OUR RATING 80/100
Two days ago was out the new album by DEATH SS, three years after last ROCK’N’ROLL ARMAGEDDON, entitled TEN (the 10th studio full-lenght from the band).
A long journey started many years ago for a cult band that has nothin’ more to prove and always free to express itself in complete..freedom!
The band led by Steve Sylvester has always been a blend of music, culture, visual imagery and content difficult to replicate.
The passion for death-erotic comics is the basis of ZORA, the well-known single, but this platter is many other things such as sharp and fast RIDE THE DRAGON, one of our favorite.
This platter is multi-faceted and you can find many sides of the sound and history of the band, such as dark ballad HERETICS, with bluesy vocals harmonies that reminds 70’s environments, the brilliant THE BLACK PLAGUE, where more classic vibes are enriched by majestic keyboards of Freddy De Rio, an added value with brilliant Aldo Lonobile on guitars.
Maybe a step behind, in our opinion, THE TEMPLE OF THE RAIN and THE WORLD IS DOOMED, but, anyway, this is a solid comeback which you’ll appreciate.
