One of the great things about being, Bro, of Bro-Metal.org is I get to make connections with bands from all over the world that I may not have been able to check out with out this blog. One of those bands is, Soulnerve, from The Netherlands. I downloaded their new album, "The Dying Light" and I must say, IT IS REALLY GOOD! They describe themselves as "melodic thrash" and that is a pretty spot on description. This is album is fast, heavy, and awesome. The musicianship displayed by, Stephan Brus, is truly stellar and is what metal is supped to sound like. Metal should make your blood pump, your heart race and your devil horns raise, and this album does that. With the vocals split between, Kevin Klaassan & Koen Vroom (clean vocals), I am impressed by how well their voices work together. This is a KILLER trio.
"The Dying Light," is fast and furious from start to finish. My favorite tracks are, "They Came For Us All", "Scavengers", "End Of The Line" and the haunting and powerful, "Beyond The Sun." Again, this album is STRONG from start to finish and I am truly impressed by how tight the album sounds. I give "The Dying Light," 9/10 and I am now officially on the Soulnerve bandwagon, you should be too. If you like metal that makes your blood pump, your heart race and your devil horns raise, then "The Dying Light" from Soulnerve is an album you must have.
