This review is from: Unfold (Audio CD)
I am relatively new to enjoying bands like Angra or Almah. Being used to thrash and death bands I am much more excited to listen to bands that are brutal and have a melodic edge to their sound (not the other way around). I've just got the new album yesterday and have being listening to it since then and discovering a lot of different sound qualities and nuances to it. The tracks mixes a 'In Flames' type of groove -that are constantly refreshed by different guitar transitions- to Edu Falaschi power vocals . Most of the guitar solos on Unfold are amazing, sometimes a bit too 'in virtuoso' for the context of the songs (in my view at least), but inspiring nonetheless.
The tracks I like the most are: 'Cannibals in Suits' with a slow tempo, strong build up and super cool guitar fills, 'The Hostage' has an insanely contagious vocal and rhythm, 'Raise the Sun' is mega catchy and brings to mind,...er, Almah's best qualities having a confident vocal in Edu Falaschi and a cutting melody harmony between keyboard and guitar.
Unfold is a heavy album sometimes bringing to mind 'Black Label Society' sludgeness mixed with Angra's multi- layered sophistication. Top compositions, great songs. I will definitely keep an eye for their tour schedule and next album efforts. I recommend it if you like the bands mentioned above.
