Of Rust and Bones
Style: Dark Hardrock
Release date: March 22nd 2010

Former Sentenced main man Ville has found a new life with Poisonblack. The success is a fact.

I sort of missed the last release, 'A Dead Heavy Day' (2008), but the one before that, 'Lust Stained Despair', I reviewed back in 2006. This new album is more of a rocker and less goth than what I listened to back then. 'Of Rust and Bones' is a fine rock album, with radio friendly hard rock tunes and a couple of  slightly heavier and faster pieces for the boys, but I think it's a step back for the Finns.

This is a solid album by all means, but I'm not head over heals for enthusiasm as you can tell from the rating. Why? A. I'm not a big fan of Ville's voice. B. I think there's so much more interesting music out there that deserves more attention.

Perhaps it's just me?
