Dark Avenger : “The Beloved Bones” 1st September 2017 Rockshots Records. Brazil Modern Heavy Metal band. This is the chapter called “Hell” from a part of two album chapters so there will be another album. Produced, recorded and mixed by the guitarist Glauber Oliveira and mastered by the renowned Tony Lindgren at Fascination Studios in Sweden.
This is so perfect it hurts, you can hear the awesome production with those new heavy sounds found in many Metal bands nowadays. A cover that looks like an Egyptian sculpture and great colors created by the french artist Bernard Bittler. Eleven tracks with many melodies, heavy guitars, great solos … it’s entertaining reminding so many bands. Each track is a story with lyrics and music playing like an orchestra so you feel fully the song and what the band wants to express. Sometimes using keyboards and even some growling voices at some point as choir parts.
They have a special atmosphere that gives them a special style we don’t find in other bands. I must say there is a strong musician work behind those great songs. Technics and well constructed compositions, high pitch vocals it’s top of the art. Here is just an intro with an opera part which is the tenth track :
Some of those melodies and heavy parts will remind you Symphony X, Adagio, Rhapsody , Judas Priest, Dimmu Borgir, Church Choir, Iced Earth, Vicious Rumours, Europe, Manowar.. .
The third track “King for a Moment” is one of the best song on the album and will conquer every Metalheads around the globe for sure. If you dig their universe you will be swallowed and down into the abyss or perfectness.
Great musicians, amazing skills beautiful album this is perfect for your music collection 100/100.
