RockmusicRaider Review - Arven - Black is the Colour - Album CoverHahaaa! Rock’n’Roll!! Hand and fingers in the air! The newest album ‘Black is the Colour’ of the German band Arven takes off furiously fast. Nothing of the subdued style left anymore that somehow plagued their debut album ‘Music of Light.

Bang goes the metal riff, once you start listening, so fast that Carina’s voice somewhat struggles to follow for the first instances. Holy. Metal. Cow.

Everything is rockier, more straightforward – indeed a much more self-confident approach to the music than before. But also darker – a shift towards the Gothic Genre, one might say. 

They have really managed to get to a next level, still maintaining their unique style, but now there is spice in the tune.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Arven - Music of Light - Album CoverY’know, I came across this band kind of by accident. And I thought this band without much merit. In the beginning. For girls, as we say.

But how far from the truth!  Listening to some of the songs I got hooked, very quickly convinced otherwise. Arventhe most amazing  German almost girl band a bunch of girls, plus Till, the lucky drummer.

‘Music of Light’ features a beautiful variation of rock, kind of gothic rock metal, and then again symphonic with metal injections (am I making sense?). And all of a sudden the tune takes off with some very good riff, very professionally played and cool to hear – so, I am torn to call this Folk Metal, Symphonic Metal or just Gothic Metal – there is metal in there everywhere, you know.Got hooked?
