Heya - what’s up people? I am finally back with an album review again. This one is prior to the actual release date again and thus, I am even more excited to share my thoughts about what is going to await you behind the doors to Lead Inc’s „MIRAGE“.
Before we dive right into it, let me just quickly tell you that I got to know Lead Inc back in 2015, when I was organizing my solo-project’s farewell show - I was looking for awesome support bands on the internet and chose Lead Inc. -> Turned out to be their first gig ever and they CRUSHED it! (In case you weren’t there, you missed out big time…)
So - shall we? Ready, set, GO!
01. - Alice
Alice opens up with a 2-minute-intro section that really is setting the kind of the scene in your ears that you would expect from looking at the cover picture. It is somewhat dark but energetic without being too dramatic. When the band kicks in full-on, y…

Written thoughts: BMTH’s "amo“ is amazing AND teaching us a lot about powerful musicianship.

So… UKs jamboree bag Bring Me The Horizon is back – with their brand new album “amo”. Let me get this straight from the beginning: I was never a die-hard fan of BMTH. I like them, and I am one of those people saying (until now, maybe that changes after the article is published) that have the opinion of That’s the Spirit being their best album to date.
Why do I call BMTH a jamboree bag? Because they went from being a brutal deathcore band to a predictable Melodic Hardcore band and now… …well, I even don’t know what I expected after That’s the Spirit. And I can hear already people complaining again about how they went full-sell-out and are now “wasting their precious talent”.
Actually, I think that complaint is just wrong. The topic about musicians/artists/bands changing their image/music/line-up is always delicate and we only have full informati…

Here we go again! UK metal-heroes Architects released their 8th album HOLY HELL last Friday and it is the first album they put out after the passing of main songwriter and guitarist Tom Searle. Of course, this is album is special in this context and expectations where quite high from everywhere. I as well took the time and listened through it. So without further beating around the bush, let’s dive right into this album.
1. Death Is Not Defeat
Starting off with a strong string section with electronic beats, this opener proves from the very first second that Architect’s haven’t lost it. It really sounds as if they are back - stronger than before. As soon as the band kicks in, we have a strong Architects hook: A bouncing, heavy groove, epic guitars, and earth-shattering deep bass and the iconic vocals of Sam Carter that we all love so much. It feels as if one is thrown into the middle of a running sto…

So, a few weeks ago Napoleon released their first single off their new album, called Ignite. I reviewed that song in particular and you can find the article here.

On Friday, finally „Epiphany“ came out. I was excited already and I am very happy to share my thoughts about this album with you! The front cover alone makes me want to listen to it and I think it is the coolest front cover of an album I’ve seen in a while. Also, Napoleon’s debut album „Newborn Mind“ is one of my favorite albums. Of course I am excited for the successor then!

Are you ready? Cause I am! Here we go:

1. Godspeed
The album opens up with a very groovy kinda stuttering clean guitar riff. It sounds like glitchy video game music actually and quickly opens up into a classic Napoleon riffing: Bouncy, odd rhythms and over-accurately played melody guitars. This track gets me from the start and is in my opinion a great choice for an openi…

Noahs Boat - …doesn’t it have to say „Noah’s Ark?“. Not in this case! Noahs Boat is not a story in that sense. They are a story-telling band from Berlin. Without lyrics. Meaning; they play instrumental music. They create images, landscapes and feelings around you and if you let yourself fall head first into yourself: inside you as well.

I can actually say that for sure - if their style hasn’t changed dramatically - as I have seen them play live on several occasions now. And every time they were able to let me forget my surroundings and what happened during the day. This sets the bar for this album quite high I think, as I am now listening just to the music without having the live atmosphere.

The Less You Love, The Less You Live is actually coming out on 1st November 2018, so for the first time ever, Shibbster Tweets is presenting you an exclusive pre-release revi…
