ALBUM WARRIOR IN THE NIGHT
LABEL SELF RELEASE
OUT October 2nd, 2020
OUR RATING 80/100
Formed in Nicosia, Cyprus in 2012, HARMONIZE originally started as a thrash metal band, enriching gradually their sound.
HARMONIZE have so far released two demos and have performed live numerous times (including shows alongside Blaze Bayley, Bonfire, Wotan and others) while working on fine tuning their sound and style.
The band's upcoming debut album, titled "Warrior in the Night" is scheduled for release on October 2nd and will be out on CD and Digital.
It’s based on an original epic fantasy fiction story that is still under development by guitarist George Constantinou and London-based actor Nicolina Papas.
As expected, battles and swords, kings and queens, angels and demons are but a few of the symbolic themes one will come across as the album's story unfolds.
"Warrior in the Night" includes a couple guest appearances by actor Nicolina Papas on the haunting narrative "Beyond Darkness" outro track of the album and also Andreas Paraschos of death metal act BLYND, who provides the brutal chorus backing vocals on the song "Tonight."
A various album with six tracks, an intro, an outro and an acoustic version of the song ANGEL.
NEVER BACK DOWN is a brilliant song, classic squared metal, with embracing riffs, effective vocals, roaring bass and pressing drums, followed by the title track which, after a dark intro, sounds classic and fresh, helped by an inspired guitar’s solo.
Softer rhythms in ANGEL in the first slice before exploding in the second one.
In THE ASTONISHING END we can find sharp riffs and a dark environment followed by great TONIGHT.
CRAWLING AMONG SHADOWS is opened by a soft arpeggio, and grows second after second, with a great texture, blackened vocals and a smashing solo.
A BAND TO TAKE AN EYE ON! TO SUGGEST!
