I must admit that I
didn’t even know about TALISMAN’s return before I held this promo in
Being a big fan of
their two first releases I was excited to say the least!
So, what are they up to
Jeff Scott Soto’s BRILLIANT vocals were always a certificate of
quality and that’s still the case! The only thing that’s really
changed is the style of the band…Or the sound of the band, that is!
has always tried to avoid sounding like everbody else and yet again they
go in their own direction…Although adding ”modern” sounding guitar
playing, they still stick to their guns and keep it ”TALISMAN”! Their
funky approach is still evident every now and then and Marcel Jacob’s
vivid bass figures are still up front… So in that department it
actually sounds pretty close to what they released in the 90s.
this is an album that’ll surely please addicts of that melodic and
bass-dominated sound of TALISMAN… Great! Emphasize what I just wrote
about the melodies…This is melodic as hell!!
If you can live with an
updated production sound then this’ll hit you where it hurts best!
Right there in your melodic heart!
execution and very convincing material!
