HERUKA
HERUKA
Leggenda
(self-financed)
24:48min

HERUKA is a fantasy Black Metal project hailing from Italy. "Leggenda" is HERUKA's second release after a demo from 2001 called "Doxa Epicurea". Like many fantasy Metal albums, "Leggenda" comes along with very melodic music, created by lots of keyboard-use. All in all I would say this is a solid output, the guitars and keys work together harmonically and although the drumming on this mini album is programmed, I think there are worse things in this world of music, because it is also done solidely. The vocals are in the typical shrieky vein, not too present in the mix which makes them not get on your nerves. The lyrics are entirely in the Italian language so one can figure out their content hardly. I think HERUKA has some good potential and although "Leggenda" is not yet the killer-release, there should come bigger things in the future (a full-length album is in the making), if the band goes on working concentrated. heruka@email.it, www.heruka.it
