Amaranthe - Maximalism


Amaranthe - Maximalism


"Maximalism" es el cuarto álbum de Amaranthe, donde una vez mas, la banda demuestra todo su variedad en estilos con influencias del Power Metal,Melodic Death, Pop,Electro y Metalcore. 

Ya hablando del álbum como tal, lo primero que se me viene a la mente es la canción "That Song". Fue el primer single que la banda presento al mundo. A mi modo de ver haber lanzando este single, siendo la mas pop del cd, fue una estrategia de mercadeo perfecta. Tantas criticas hizo que solo se hablara de Amaranthe y así aumento la necesidad de escuchar mas canciones para ver si la banda había dejado su lado mas pesado y se había vendido por el lado comercial. Dicha respuesta llego con el segundo single "Fury" que callo todas las criticas demostrando toda la furia de la banda en una canción pesada con la voz gutural de Henrik Englund Wilhemsson.

La combinación de dichos géneros es posible a las 3 voces que son muy diferentes pero se complementan perfectamente. Musicalmente la banda cada vez explora y demuestra su innegable calidad, con riffs  y solos muy rápidos. 

En conclusión " Maximalism" es un álbum increíble donde lo mas destacable es la innovación, algo que actualmente en el mundo musical es muy temido hacerlo. 

Los puntos mas altos de este cuarto trabajo de la banda sueca son "21"," "Maximalism" y "On The Rocks". Tres canciones que demuestran que la banda son los reyes del Pop Metal. Pero "Endlessly" es una balada perfecta que cierra el álbum. Donde la bella Elize Ryd demuestra todo su potencial vocal.

Ruins of Elysium - "Daphne"


Ruins of Elysium - "Daphne"


Ruins of Elysium is an Epic Symphonic Metal with classical tenor vocals. The band if form by musicians of Brazil, Italy and Netherlands.

Their EP "Daphne" is a great journey of 45 minutes of Epic Symphonic Metal with several influences. The 1st song of this EP is a ten-minute songs where you discover the influences of classical music and the trained tenor Drake Chrisdensen. This song for me is beautiful way to star this journey of Epic Symphonic Metal.

"Daphne" consist in 8 songs, at the start I was thing to do the review song by song, but after many times of listen to this EP I came to a conclusion:

The EP is great way to refresh the Metal world, almost all the Metal music has stagnated. For me that’s the beauty of Ruins of Elysium. Because is a band that tries something different and the best part is that they made it.

Drake Chrisdensen vocals are different for symphonic metal, considering that genre almost all voices are from woman. But in this case is from a tenor.

The Best song of the EP, in my opinion is “Daphne” because it shows everything the band wants to share to the world.

4,5 stars out of 5 stars!!
