Second full-length album by German Gothic Metal/Rock band.
Five years ago Shardless arose from the Death Metal band The Prior's Day, as Corinna Ketterer replaced the former singer. From then on, the band broke up from their previous musical roots and then moved toward Melodic Rock with Gothic influences. Band took another step forward with their second album again recorded and mixed in the G.Knüppel Studios. The sound had clearly evolved and become more professional. Music on the album is a worthy - Gothic Metal with female vocals that are characteristic thick unkempt twin guitars and despite the lack of a keyboard player in the rich synth, up to the electronic inserts and samples. Guitar, performing rhythmic functions, prefer not to separate riffs (though there are some songs), and a dense veil slightly Metal sound, sometimes diluting unpretentious melodic solos. The density of the sound gives the bass, the drums are raised slightly in frequency, but the music sounds in the high register, in spite of this. Keyboards are nice varied.
Despite an unknown name in the music world, fans of Elis, Dreams Of Sanity, Edenbridge, Dakrua can get pleasure from listening to this CD, finding the lines of these bands in different forms in Shardless, without repeating any of them. Surprisingly decent album!!
