Arven – Black is the Colour (2013) – Review

Hahaaa! Rock'n'Roll!! Hand and fingers in the air! The newest album 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.

Arven – Music of Light (2011) – Review


When I came across this band, somewhat by accident, I thought 'OK, this is for girls, really', nothing in there for me. Sounds macho, huh? Hehe! 

But how far from the truth!  Listening to some of the songs I got hooked, very quickly convinced otherwise.
