Upcoming Saturday I have the great opportunity To have a chat with the Russian symphonic power metal band: Sunwalter and I am looking forward to have a nice talk about their work as a band.
In honor of this upcoming interview, I therefor reviewed their latest album called: ‘Alien Hazard’.
Alien Hazard starts with a mysteriously sounding intro and gets backup from drums and fine melodic tunes. When this happens, it immediately gives you the feeling that aliens are invading the world.
A great mix of screams and clean vocals also give the feeling that aliens are amongst us and instantly leaves you thinking that we are not alone in the universe.
Musically, the album is a great mix of different metal and hardrock genres. Thanks to electronic tunes into the music it also gives great, yet intriguing vibes. The entire album then also takes you with them and let you fade away in thoughts, wandering through the universe and stumbling across many other species in space.
Throughout the entire album, other genres are also introduced, giving the album a great mix up and so it isn’t boring, but rather a great and perfect experience. Thanks to the constant switches of musical vibes it keeps being entertaining and leaves the listener with thoughts of what is going to be coming up next, which is done masterfully.
As a bonus, there is a techno version of one of the other songs of the band. This song is a perfect ender of the album. It gives the feeling that, after the hard work they put into the album, it is now time to release all frustrations and stress in going completely loose and letting everything go.
For the last time, fans can now join the band in going completely lost into this song, which is the perfect ending of a great adventure through the universe.
A true and inspirational sound that comes to life throughout the entire album.
