Deafening Opera - Blueprint (2013)
The second album from this German band.
Deafening Opera was a sextet on this album with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and vocals. The vocals are in English and in French of all things....
I was about to review their 2018, brand new album Let's Silence Fall when I discovered that I had not reviewed Blueprint. Hence, the review of the 2018 was postponed and I started to listen to this album instead.
The band is listed as heavy prog in ProgArchives and some other places. Which is a label that covers most things.
On this album, a self-released album, the band has created and released fifty-five minutes of most types of heavy music. From nu-metal to hard core and prog metal to some more progressive rock and AOR.
The music is hard and youthful. Youthful as in some Korn influences. This is by no means an album looking back to the 1970s. This album gives us modern music.
This album is everywhere with some growling and more normal vocals. The guitars are really heavy too and we get lots of genres in one go.
The quality is not really that good either. There is no good pieces of music here. The music is decent enough throughout this album and that is all I can say.
