This is another load of Danish dynamite! Malrun gives me a turbolent ride and a great lession of
how the mordern style of the melodic metal sounds today, where the old genre folder doesn't fit anymore. Super talented instrumental members and a interesting singer with brilliant vocal cords that handles all the different hardness levels in the songs and still manages to deliver the clear tones that I personally appreciates in the music.
Malrun's debut album (Beauty
in Chaos) from 2010 is also really something to discover for the fans of bands like: Silvergun, Burning Borders, One Without, Sarea and so on. This brand new album is called 'The Empty Frame' and they stay in the same music style
like on the debut album with wonderful melodic metal songs and at the same time they give us stone hard metal riffs and hard hitting drums. I've compared
their albums and in my ears they have developed their music and
have a wider and a more mature sound. The groovy choruses and the brilliant and bullet-proof production creates something above the general.
I'm convinced that 'TEF' contains several tracks that has 'hit potential'
like 'Sink Forever Down', 'New Blood' and 'Shadowborn'.
Jacob Lobner is the man behind the vocal top performance and
that differentiates them from similar bands in the genre. Malrun give us a 53 minutes of an complete audio experience. My old rock neck needs this kind of album to to widen my mind for new metal and to get the strength to walk further on life's harsh and unpredictable road.
Thanks for the guidance guys...
