Melancholy Souls

"Scandinavian Death Metal!!!!!!!" Hm, I wonder what I have to expect from a band which exactly printed this sentence on the booklet of their promo CD? Well, perhaps music inspired by bands like e. g. Dark Tranquillity? Ahh, I just have to go on reading the backside of this booklet: "Fans of In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Soilwork, this is the new revelation to come". Honestly I don't know what I should think about these words. I hear some influences of Dark Tranquillity and some of older In Flames, but I don't hear so many Soilwork-influences here. So keep it like it is, YORBLIND are from Paris and playing melodic Death Metal in the Scandinavian tradition. The production is fantastic and for a first output I can tell you that this is a quite interesting one. Still I need to say that YORBLIND have to improve a lot to find their own identity because there are far too many bands playing this type of Death Metal at the moment. And who has enough money to buy everything? Well, a song like 'Forget' with really outstanding and untypical female vocals makes me looking forward to hear their next recording and sounds really promising between the other eleven more or less typical songs. Check 'em out, especially if you are a fan of a band like Dark Tranquillity. www.yorblind.com, www.thundering-records.com
