I recently received the new 6 song EP from Memnoir. When this CD came in the mail, I must admit I have never heard of the band, and had no knowledge of their sound what so ever. The front sticker said recommended if you like Stabbing Westward, Breaking Benjamin, NIN, Evanescence etc. That was good enough for me to check them out.
All of the songs music and lyrics were written by Memnoir (Just Memnoir) with the exception of “The One” ( which was penned by Kristy Bailey.
Memnoir used a ton of musicians to flesh out this project including the guitars of Jesse James, Ola Englund, Butch Price, Arto Toropainen and Keigo Yoshida, the bass of Evan Harris, the drums of Ross Morgan and Christian Nativo, and the piano of Toussaint Hunt. That seems like a heck of a lot of musicians to put together six songs. Usually when so many musicians partake in a musical project, it sounds a little disjointed. In the case of Canto Vol. I, it simply does not. The music is surprisingly solid, and much like the sticker on the front cover suggests, if you are a fan of any of the bands I mentioned above, you will probably like Canto Vol. I.
The music on this CD is dark, moody, sometimes heavy, but always interesting. If you are looking for some new tunes to explore, you could do a lot worse than Memnoir’s Canto Vol. I.
You can score a couple of the songs for free, by visiting the Memnoir website, and joining the mail list. Check them out!
1. The One
2. Demons and Friends
4. Soundtrack For A Nightmare
6. Empy Strings
Tokyo Blade’s new studio album Thousand Men Strong is due for release on March 18th 2011 and for those who’ve already heard samples it’s clear that unlike for previous releases, no corners have been cut in the recording process.
Determined to give their patient fans the best listening experience possible, the band enlisted the services of legendary Grammy-nominated producer Chris Tsangarides. His pedigree in Heavy Metal circles is unquestionable with artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore, Ian Gillan, Helloween, Killing Joke and Yngwie Malmsteen to name just a few, trusting in his skills and vast experience at the desk.
However even great producers need the essential raw materials before they can begin to weave their magic as CT explains.
“Working with a band like Blade is the real deal only this time I think they’ve got it right. Great songs, great performances and finally a great vocalist joining forces shows what a producer and a band that’s on the same page can do!”
“We’ve made a record we can all be proud of!”
The current Tokyo Blade line-up includes four of the five original members, Andy Boulton (guitar), Andy Wrighton (bass), John Wiggins (guitar) and Steve Pierce (drums) and is completed by powerhouse vocalist Nicolaj Ruhnow.
