Country: Italy
Title: After the Storm
Label: Buil2Kill Records
Year: 2018
Style: Melodic Death Metal

The Bologna based band was founded back in 2006 and 5 years later released their debut album; here we have their second studio full-length, 7 years distance from their debut, so it's either the band relies more on playing live, or the band is more a weekend hobby and their daily jobs don't allow much more, or they were simply not that inspired in the meantime in order to come up with more material. Anyway, we're treated here with 8 tracks (half an hour) of Melodic Death Metal inspired by the Gothenburg school, but with plenty of ideas and influences from other modern genres, too. After spinning it a few times I'm still not sure if I like it or dislike it, I guess it's quite in the middle for me, it didn't impress me with anything, but on the other hand all here is done tih good taste, with perfect precision, and from a technical point of view I don't see what one could ask for more. The problem is it doesn't stand out from the crowd of similar releases, I'm sure there will be plenty of fans of this genre who will love it, and I won't blame them one bit, we're dealing with a professional sounding Melodic Death Metal, it's just that for me it didn't do much, so obviously I'd recommend you to check it and make your own mind on it.
