BAMD LORDS OF BLACK
ALBUM ALCHEMY OF SOULS - PART I
LABEL Frontiers Music srl
OUT Nov 6th, 2020
OUR RATING 85/100
Fourth album by LORDS OF BLACK and another confirm of their status.
The band led by guitarist and composer TONY HERNANDO, with DANI CRIADO on bass, with new drummer JO NUNEZ and with Ronnie Romero Official Site again on vocals, provides another top album with eleven songs and almost one hour of new music.
Their sound is always groovy, helped by a rhythm section with driving bass lines and dynamics drumming; the riffing of TONY HERNANDO is so various, sharper, heavier or more melodic when it needs.
And last but not least..the return of RONNIE ROMERO, a real top player, able to be always an added value.
They start with DYING TO LIVE AGAIN, a power/prog song right now effective, and INTO THE BLACK, while in DELIVERANCE LOST the sound grows and the solutions provided are a several.
SACRIFICE shows a more contemporary metal sound, groovy and squared, before more progressive BRIGHTEST STAR.
More rhythm in brilliant CHOOSE TO YOUR FALL, again with solo parts to remark, a more rockin song which you’ll appreciate; again sharper and heavier following SHADOWS KILL TWICE, before fluent DISEASE IN DISGUISE, where all sounds great.
In TIDES OF BLOOD we can feel, thanks to vocals and sound, best RJ DIO vibes while ALCHEMY OF SOULS is a rich song of over ten minutes which opens many doors.
A piano version of YOU CAME TO ME to end in the best way an album which we suggest without hesitation!!
