It's a bit cheesy but not too bad.
Eh, this is a bit too fast paced for the Riverside I enjoy...
Digging: Venenum - Trance of Death
That was terrible.
Digging: Samael - Hegemony
At least they sound like they aren't taking things so seriously anymore. It sounds very loose.
I give it a 6/10 *applies stamp*
Digging: Arcane Roots - Melancholia Hymns
Meh, was hoping for something better than this...
Digging: Lunatic Soul - Fractured
I enjoyed it more with every listen, there are some great riffs especially the one in the verse. The drums are too low again, and you can barely hear the hi hat and the cymbals.
It's the first single and I guess they wan't to expand their listener base a little, can't blame them, prog ain't exactly the most rewarding genre financially.
The instruments sound good, especially the keyboards. The bass avoids the lows a bit but that's how Mariusz likes it. The drums feel more powerful but unfortunately they're too low in the mix to have full impact. ADHD was Riversides best produced album.
Don't really like the song. Sounds like it is trying too hard to recreate a 70's hard rock riff vibe. Hopefully the rest of the album is better
Getting pretty strong Fear of a Blank Planet vibes from it.
I was hoping for something different *fingers crossed.
Drums are tooo low, and the bass could be lower, sigh
