The latest bit of glam metal comes from Knyght, a young five piece band from Italy.
Destination Unknown is the band’s five track demo. Judging from the tracks here, Knyght is a band with potential, but could use a good producer to help them tighten up their sound.
Tommaso Forni’s vocals kind of reminds me of a young Vince Neil. The music on this disc is solid enough, but the mixing seems to be all over the place. Stop Me is a fairly catchy tune, but the keyboards are mixed way to high on this tune.
The title track, Destination Unknown is another tune that has a lot of potential. The guitar work on this tune, was mixed way too low, and is drowned out by the keyboards.
I have no problem with the keyboards on the songs here, but they are mixed too high above the guitar playing, and that should be the band’s focal point.
Knyght is a band that has a lot of potential. They need to continue to work on crafting their sound. With the help of a producer and some one with a little more mixing experience, they could have a lot to offer to the glam metal fans around the world.
