After two months of its release on Metalfest El Salvador 2010, a few weeks ago I got the new Angelus
production, the album called “Dos” (Two
), that is also the second production of this salvadorean Heavy Metal
On purpose: After the concert it was available only in ONE place! Jeez! Let’s search for another distributors, guys!! -_-
Well, let’s proceed with the review:
Hancelh… it’s not a song that I can “love”, it has some riffs during the song that are surplus. Didn’t minded if it was a little shorter, but I guess some parts were unnecessary… even so it’s not a bad song, it has a powerful starting and nice lyrics.
In the album art, I liked the idea of arrange lyrics in a different order than track list. I think it looks better than if they were placed in track order, and it’s more original.
There are one or two misspellings on lyrics but it’s not a big deal, cause I’ve seen some cases where lyrics are incomplete, or don’t say what song says, or have missing paragraphs and that kind of things, things that you don’t see in this booklet. So in that way, this is a well done work.
Lyrics are also pretty good: Hancelh and Angel
are such tragic love and betrayal stories, we also have a couple of instrumental songs, other songs talk about fear and dementia, and some more about social themes. So this album is nicely “assorted”, but the first prize is for track 2 “Esto es Heavy Metal
” (”This is Heavy Metal
”) that for me -and surely for many others- is whole a Metal
Sound and mix: Pure
international quality! And
something that also helps is that Joel -vocalist- is accompanied with second voices in some phrases, and that helps songs to not sound “empty”.
In general terms and to conclude my review, I give this album a 9… a nine that can be compared with world-quality Metal
Congrats to Angelus
for their new album, and we wish there be more, much more in the future!
