September 2004 Chain Collector signed
a two album record deal with Sound Riot Records and recently their debut
album “The Masquerade” was
licensed to Massacre Records to be released in Europe,
Collector “The Masquerade” comes with a good production and
you really cannot complain about the musicianship and songs like,
“Harvester” and “Winter Princess” get over really good, but
somehow this album seems to bore me a little.
If you only listen to one or two songs, then “The
Masquerade” sounds pretty good and are enjoyable, but when I listen to the whole album I find
myself reaching out for the stop button.
It's an alright effort for a debut CD, but
just not good enough to please me and my appetite for Heavy Metal and
Melodic Death Metal. I must admit that this I only my opinion and
if you are into hard Heavy Metal and Melodic Death Metal I really think
you should check this band out.
