Burst The Curse

Album Type:
Release Date:

Record Label:
Metalmessage Promotion
Total Tracks:

The German young band Invictus started somewhere in 2010 and refined their music year after year to release their first EP Burst The Curse. There are just 3 songs on it, 2 heavier tracks and a softer one in the middle. The first track is a fast power metal song leaning towards speed metal. Nicolas Peter has a high reach and fits to the fast music, but sounds a bit average. The music has some fine hooks, fine melodies and the gang shouting refrain makes you want to shout along. ‘Gaia’ is a ballad with accoustic guitar, a rather nice try, but here you can hear that Nicolas has his limitations and does not sound pure every note. Not that it bothers me a lot though. The last song is quite fast again in a kind of Helloween style, especially the high vocals are due to that.

All in all not a bad EP, but just 3 songs of which one ballad are not really enough to give a really honest judgement about their music. This 3 songs however are o.k., but from a band that has been around for almost 9 years I would have expected a few more songs to form an even better opinion.

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
