5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Brilliant, 9 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Black Is the Colour -Ltd- (Audio CD)
As someone with musical tastes firmly routed in 70's rock I have a rather tangential relationship with modern `heavy' music. So often, it seems to consist of little more than `grungy' chords, predicated and punctuated by a vocalist who merely shouts or growls, and as such I tend to avoid it.
So how did I discover Arven? I received an Amazon `recommendation' based on me liking `Pythia'. Upon checking out their music that was available on line, I liked what I heard and decided to give them a try and buy this CD - I am so glad I did.
Arven are an excellent group of highly talented musicians / songwriters who sound as tight as a new packet of Rizlas, the ensemble overarched by an exquisite vocal, the clarity of which is stunning.
The CD comes with a sticker saying "in the vein of" a bunch of bands I'd never heard or heard of, so for those of you Luddites like me, I give the following analogy. To my ears, there are guitar riffs Maiden would be proud of, with echoes of Tull in their pomp, mixed with a hint of Magnum and a touch of Blackmore's Night - and I mean this as a compliment.
This is a superb album (as is its predecessor Music Of Light), which I've played every day (several times a day) since receiving it; there isn't a track on it which makes me press the 'Skip' button. I believe this is the best band to have come from Germany since the Scorpions; and if they play some dates in the UK, this old rocker will don his bullet belt and Lewis Leather one last time and go to see them.
Enjoy!
