delivered two years ago a magnificent self-produced 'Perihelion' (See the review
and its deserved 90% rating
here). The Hungarian quartet has decided to change its name to...
Perihelion. I liked the former patronymic New Color but I agree with Vasvári
Gyula when he says that Perihelion truly reflects the world created with the
now by US labels Black Plague Records and Metallic Media, 'Perihelion' is
reissued with the EP 'Nap Fele Néz' ('Faces the Sun') recorded in January 2014.
This EP has a kind of nice folk touch, melodic, full of conviction, with a clear
but strong voice. This feeling is strengthened by the choice of their mother
tongue for the lyrics and of a cover song from the cult 'shaman punk' band VHK.
genuine! Singing in Hungarian here, and more generally in your own language, is
a simple idea I really like: Trust did it (remember 'Antisocial'), Dimmu Borgir
used to do it (remember 'Stormblĺst'), and of course: Ihr wollt doch auch das
Blut vom Degen lecken! Rammstein! And I should do it too... I mean... Je devrais
le faire aussi...
Ethno Metal or something? Whatever. The band's style is like the universe,
always in motion. Do not miss a second chance to discover a great record,
enhanced by an EP which is much more than a bunch of bonus tracks.
