BAND NINTH CIRCLE

ALBUM ECHO BLACK

LABEL PURE UNDERGROUND RECORDS

OUT 26/6/2020

OUR RATING 82/100


NINTH CIRCLE are back and they’re ready to unleash a new album entitled ECHO BLACK, out on PURE UNDERGROUND RECORDS on June 26th, 2020.


The compositions of this new album “Echo Black“ are more catchy than ever before and they are able to mix several influences in an unique style.

The first shot is DANCE OF SWORDS, with its classic twist, great vocals and a well-groomed solo, followed by THE ANGEL’S SHARE, squared with classic gallops too..all sounds good!

The title track, after a cinematic intro mix classic influences with a good musicality, while next FOREVER MORE starts with a dark mood, becoming pressing and roaring...surely one of our favs.

An 80’s twist for next TOKYO NIGHTS, a great example of melodic hard rock, with a Def Leppard flavour, while PRELUDE TO GLORY, after a start between a soft arpeggio and solos, is closer to classic Hm sounds, enriched again by brilliant solo parts.

SHADOW OF GIANTS shows an attitude typical of American Hard Rock, while RETURN OF THE KING is a return to classic HM.

They go on with RIDING THE STORM, maybe a step back, THEN & THERE, more glossy, the interlude NATURAL HIGH which opens strong WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN.

The pressing classic metal of WARRIOR ends in the best way this great platter, enriched by twin guitar passages and shredding parts.


AN ALBUM TO SUGGEST BY A BAND WITH PERSONALITY!!
