Hauntings And Possessions

RAVENSTHORN- HAUNTINGS AND POSSESSIONS 2005 Hellion Records
Singer Bill Janusch leads the charge utilizing a full range from low, snarling gruffs to mid-range howling right on to some insane, high pitch wailing. What you get with the music is riff driven scorchers with well played leads mixed with some eerie fret-board noodling on the more haunting, slowed down numbers. The well placed tracks move you along perfectly through this musical haunted house. Knowing when to tease you and when to let loose with the onslaught of fear. Great stuff!!!
In this day in age of overblown, symphonic cheese metal, it's a good feeling to be able to slap in a disc like this and rock out to music that is comparable to some of the old time bests yet still has it's own personality. I feel these guys could become really big in the European market. With an album like "Hauntings And Possessions", I hope more bands follow suit in keeping the glory days of this genre alive.
