If the debut album was really good usually the second is a bit disappointing.
And this happens here. Compared to “synthetic” the new release is not so good..
The band has continued with its unique style – a combination of black metal riffs, electronic keyboards and goth atmosphere. However this time they’ve got a rawer edge which in this case is not so good. Also the music lacks the passion and emotions that can be find the predecessor.The songs are similarly structured and as a whole they are bit boring.
There’s nothing to remember them for. It’s like one melody is repeated numerous times. The guitar riffs are not so original and the keyboards are just there – the music is not an extreme symphony anymore…Although there are some highlights (Ravine is simply great).
Do not get me wrong – this is not a bad album. It’s just that Shade Empire could make better.
