must be my lucky month - first I receive the brilliant new album from
Pyramaze with Lance King. Then from the master himself I have received
this little gem. Shining Star hails from Brazil, and is the brainchild of guitarist Fabio Rocha. Prior to "Enter
Eternity" they've released one album "Fatal Mistake"
(2001) on Megahard Records.
Rocha have written all the music and recorded it in Brazil
with his fellow companions: Juliano Collombo (Drums), Kuky Sanchez (Bass)
and Dinno Zampier (Keyboards). Taking care of the vocals is off course
none other than record label owner himself: Mr. Lance King. And there is
no need to get into specifics about his performance on this album - with
almost familiar fashion he is delivering the goods!
Eternity" is a good melodic metal album, with lot's of cool songs -
all of them check out OK, but the album does however suffer from a
somewhat weak production - the drums and some the guitars foremost, the
vocal production is OK - done by Lance himself in his own studio.
should not scare you off, because there are so many fine moments on this
album, that you should at least give these guys a try... and I really
like the artwork - good one!
