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 Metal genre, one might say. They have really managed to get to a next level, still maintaining their unique style, but now there is spice and fire in the tune.Got hooked?
