I was approached by Seven Angels I had never heard of them, but now I've
had their sophomore album for a good week, and must say I am highly
impressed with this album. Seven Angels hails from Brazil.
Angels is basically a power metal band with a female vocalist, but they
are never limited within the boundaries of power metal. And their
influences range from melodic metal, thru thrash and progressive metal.
is in your face fast and furious power metal with a strong focus on a
very strong guitar section, which is what impresses me the most on this
cool album. The duo of Karím Serri and Régis Lafayette delivers one
stunning riff after another throughout the album, and the leads are all
rhythm section of Eliézer Leite on the drums and Gustavo Martins on the
bass makes an equally impressive impression, which brings me to my main
objection to this album - the vocals from Debora Serri. Not that she is
an awful singer; I do just feel some of her vocals could have been
better. I do feel she too often is holding back and I wish she would let
it rip and scream her lungs out, because she does have the ability and
range to bring this album up the next level...
you are into power metal with female vocals, then there's no way around
this album. I know I am a sucker for this kind of metal. However that is
not why I do recommend this album to all power metal fans, it's because
this is an album packed with great and powerful metal songs and the
guitar work alone makes this album great and worth checking out.
out their very professional website for more info, you can buy the disc
directly there and from various well assorted record stores around the
