Crime Of The Soul
Italian guitar legend Stefania Ponzilacqua has reached thousands of metal fans all over the world. Thanks to her band, Eternal Tragedy, she's played alongside heavy-weights such as Nervo Chaos and Ragnarok. This musical master has even been given a deal with Schecter Guitars. It's a brand I own myself and can vouch for their quality, heavy metal sound. Ponzilacqua has been working on a second album to back up the already insoluble Forever. With critical acclaim from many tents in the field of battle, and a lot more passion to squeeze from her beating heart, it's looking more than good for this virtuoso talent. Currently seeking band members who live in Athens and have a taste for extreme metal, Eternal Tragedy is doors open at this time.
Crime Of The Soul is the first track of the full-on and technically brilliant album. It opens with a feral guitar riff and a torrent of clattering drums. A wave of sonic intensity builds and then crashes in a choppy and quickly moving selection of chords. Frantic trilling notes craft epic journeys across bashing drums then chord and bass combine to throw a powerful edge down onto the listener. Progressive riffs with dirty distortion grow behind a swirling storm of snare and metal-work that rings out in expertly notched pulsations of time. Metal vocals which growl and roar with aggressive energy tell the story of the song in terms we need the lyrics to understand. A patchwork of boiling hot guitars and thundering drums stitched together with needle work bass throws heavy metal at our face in portions that shift and churn with clever measures.
Expect to be knocked off your feet, this massive sound made by only three members just aches to be turned up loud. The rest of the album takes melody and rhythm and mixes it with athletic ability to fulfil many a metal-head's sonic dream.
