ALBUM IN A PALLID SHADOW
LABEL SELF RELEASE
OUT July 3rd, 2020
OUR RATING 84/100
NORTHERN CROWN from Florida, US, are ready to unleash a brilliant self release work, IN A PALLID SHADOW, out on July 3rd, 2020.
With this their third full-lenght they are able to find a unique fit, with a various album which mix at best several influences.
In A Pallid Shadow is everything that a real adventure should be made of - an epic struggle between good and evil, a terrifying personal dilemma, a brief moment of unexpected beauty and a few good stories.
LEPROSARIUM is the first shot, with a dark riffing, organ inserts, effective vocals and a seventies hard rock twist, enhanced by modern mood.
Great work by rhythm section, especially by dynamic drums, and inspired seems guitar’s solo, within a smart texture with epic and doom drops.
THE LAST SNOWFALL goes on the same line, a long seventies journey, with keyboards special guests, while A VIVID MONOCHROME provides more melody, growin’ second after second and exploding in an inspired guitar’s solo.
Almost nine mins lenght for 8 HOURS, marked by a squared riff and a more thoughtful part in the last slice.
The last shot is OBSERVING, a long journey which ends in the best way this IN A PALLID SHADOW.
TO SUGGEST..DOOM, 70’s HARD ROCK AND MANY OTHER THINGS BUT, ABOVE ALL, ABILITY TO PROVIDE AN OWN STYLE.
