Deadend in Venice
See You on the Ground
Style: Melodic Death Metal
Release date: 17 June, 2011
Playing time: 34:14

This German band started in 2008 and has just released their debut album now. For a first album this isn't bad at all, but ... and of course there are buts again and there is still more work to be done. First of all, they play a style that a lot of other good bands play. Secondly the combination female/male vocals have been done so much in the last years that it must be outstanding to make a difference.

The band's style is melodic death metal with a metal core touch. The male vocals are harsh/growling ones and in combination with Annabell Kleins clear clean vocals, it does at times give a nice discrepancy. The songs are just average and the musicianship falls into that category too. You can compare them with Deadlock and fans of that band will run away with this record. This record feels like a long summer holiday with an every day temperature of 20 degrees Celsius. Just not hot enough to swim and not cold enough to wear a jacket. Coming home from the vacation, you have the feeling that it was a so so summer. Not one you will remember five years later, which will be the case with this album too. If you ask me about it a year later, I think I can't tell you many details and perhaps I don't even remember them very well.

A decent and average and rather short album and that's about it.
