A cup filled with blood, in which basks in a mysterious and novel Countess Bathory. A look hidden in the mists of a dark and mysterious cover art in some ways naive and out of time, that in spite of the good insights, can not sew perfectly the canvas of a painting that improves the aesthetics hidden within a well-defined booklet.
They are called the Crimson Chrysalis and arrive from Pretoria carrying in her womb the vocalism of the good René van den Bergh, the emphasis harmonious interweaving instrumental, ready to redefine the most of a mixture of melodic metal, pop and spices streaks of mold gothic-fantasy.Album buckles around 14 tracks, which (alas) seem to lose bite on long-range, showing however, an interesting centerpiece nodal able to blend in well-kept attitudes symphonic songwriting.
The gates open to the symphony is Angel & Demons , the track that defines interesting flights of fancy on top of an easy listening-style film. A cross between radio voices that, in some ways, seem to fall into the structures of proto-musical Meat Loaf Paradise by the Dashboard Light . But the best is yet to come, in fact, exceeding the orchestral soul of Deo Volente and the feelings of northfolk Moth to Flame around , you get to the structuring of Blood Diamonds . Just the opening words, which refers to the tradition of South Africa, opens to an AOR direct, minimal and observational, which matures into a chorus from simple sound impact, thought to act on the emotional side of their audience. If then with Letters from the edge confirmed strengths and weaknesses of the band, with Fuck off and die that the listener is surprised, just because of an unexpected structure dominated by four strings, in which the vocal lennoxiana René opens in reminiscences 80s. Rounding out the disc are, finally, the gentle notes of Dragon Roar , perfect in its kind, and Virgin Death , whose features filmic confirm the route taken by Crimson Chrysalis. short, an album that, with theatricality and expressive emotionality, able to look out over the sill of the usual, although starting from the usual. A work that owes its caverns inlaid fantasy narrative, stylistic Lana Lane, Nightwish and edulcorazioni music that would best managed through a tightening of its conceptuality. Tracklist: 01.
