Albez Duz – Wings Of Tzinacan

Listenable Records / Earsplit, 28.10.2016

One of those records that have you go “woooooow” after a few notes – and indeed, the promises are not only kept in place, it even gets better. A massive Doom attack, where influences of Black Sabbath are obvious, yet this is far from being a copy, integrating elements of Psychedelic / Prog / Black Metal, coming with evil growls and even more evil hooks. The voice is almost as deep as Type-O Mr. Steele’s, plus a vibrato we know from Candlemass classis.
Hence the “woooooow”… Another surprise, this band does not hail from the mines of Moria, but from Germany… but maybe that’s not really important.

The focus remains on Doom – with one exception, Innocent Gate has much more of a Power Ballad – yet there is plenty of variaton, lots of genres appear only in the first song The Uprising and later Sacred Flame even features a bit of Jazz.
Although Doom is not quite my favourite genre, I have to admit that this one will be listened to quite a bit – well, maybe not immediately before going to sleep, because of this sinister track Death Whistle …

reckless and merciless dictator, so KNEEL! In other words, editor-in-chief, translator, website and ad admin, "Jane of all trades" - - - addicted to books (everything between Lord Of The Rings & quantum physics) and music, mainly Metal made in Finland. Furthermore, there's painting, drawing, movies, theater... so you can expect some variety on this website too. MA Master of Arts, English and American studies & Media communication = completed two full studies parallel within 5 years; very proud of my achievement - a bit later in life thanks to a scholarship - as a working class girl in a highlyconservative-romancatholic nation...
