SAVN – SAVN (2014) – Review


Here is a band that was lauded (by some, not all, mind you..) as the breath of fresh air into an already dead (or kind of dead) genre that too many bands tried to ride into oblivion. Well, hells bells, not quite - this would more be like beating a dead horse and then killing it in the end. And besides, the genre is far from dead anyway - lots of good stuff coming out of it still.

So, what is this Norwegian act 'Savn' and for sure, what is their debut album 'Savn' all about.

Evanescence – Evanescence (2011) – Review


Hmm! What a total and sad downgrade from the heights of 'Fallen' to this album, named right after the band's name 'Evanescence'. Only that the evanescence - true to its name - of this gig seems to have finally disappeared completely.

First signs of this to happen already appeared in their former record 'The Open Door', where one could observe a certain lack of direction and oomph, but still some good stuff to cover there, though.

This one here, however, tops it in the negative arena.
