  • The DrinkTim Webzine - Kiske & Somerville - “City of Heroes”
    hecho de que 2 vocalistas de distinto género y tan diferentes entre sí se complementen tan bien llegando a fundirse y dando como resultado algo mucho más grande porque en esa unión es donde reside la magia que hace de este proyecto algo único Abren con la homónima City Of Heroes tema perfecto como carta de presentación y del que han grabado videoclip Un corte con muy buenas guitarras y que por su velocidad recuerda a la época en que Kiske triunfaba con las calabazas germanas Cambio de tercio con Walk On Water y es que pasamos de las guitarras y la velocidad a la melodía y los teclados cediendo todo el protagonismo a un estribillo muy pegadizo También hay video Rising Up es sin duda una de las joyas del disco Lo tiene absolutamente todo para convertirse en un nuevo himno de power metal Potencia melodía guitarras teclados y un gran trabajo de batería se mezclan en un corte que me ha recordado a Avantasia y con un estribillo que si te descuidas no vas a poder sacártelo de la cabeza Temón Con Salvation bajamos el ritmo y puede que también el listón Vuelve el protagonismo para los teclados en un tema mucho menos inspirado y con un estribillo que quizá peca de algo repetitivo Muy Allen Lande es Lights Out con una melodía de guitarras marca de la casa un tema que siempre se espera en cualquier disco de Karlsson haciendo esta vez Kiske de Russell y cediendo todo el estribillo para Somerville Obra de la propia Amanda y del guitarrista holandés Sander Gommans After Forever es Breaking Neptune el único tema que no han compuesto Karlsson y Sinner que no desentona en absoluto en el conjunto del disco Siguen las melodías en las 6 cuerdas y como principal novedad destaca el uso de voces dobladas enriqueciendo un corte que coquetea por momentos con el Hard Rock Turno ahora para disfrutar Ocean Of Tears es una delicia de canción con un inicio casi a capela por parte de ambos voceras acompañados únicamente por una sección de cuerda demostrando de lo que son capaces de transmitir sólo con su garganta Una maravilla que pone los pelos de punta Mucho más festivo comercial y pegadizo es Open Your Eyes un corte que no aporta nada nuevo salvo el buen trabajo de coros en su estribillo Hay buenas melodías y un gran solo de guitarra pero el estribillo peca de facilón Volvemos ahora sí al buen metal alemán del principio con Last Goodbye donde vuelven a recordar a los primeros Helloween con un estribillo que hace vencedor por K O a Kiske ante cualquier rival que se atreva a medirse con él micrófono en mano After This Night Is Over es la segunda y última balada del disco Mucho más clásica con guitarras acústicas bajo y una batería que sirven de colchón a las voces para que se luzcan en un bonito estribillo Su posición dentro del setlist no le favorece

    to find ambient progressive and post rock elements in compositions like Varelsen or Far Väl which contrast with other songs like Descending Ascension or En Ljusare Morgondag full of agony and darkness How do you approach to these elements when you compose Do you have any concrete philosophy about it We come to agreements on what fits together when we rehearse and develop the concepts from there to make them as interesting and useful as possible until we have expressed as much as possible within the realm of each composition so the album becomes a whole Progressive seems to be a very popular tag lately Do you feel you are that kind of band for posing longer and more complex compositions or do you think that using that term is abusive It s a term that most wouldn t be able to live up to if seriously challenged to and rather a word that people use when they face something new or different to them While anything and anyone that strives to evolve never take shortcuts and do something truly that is their own can be referred to as progressive Nothing however is abusive unless you let it be that is something entirely up to the perceiver Talking about compositions how is the habitual process of composition of your songs Do you work together in them or there is someone who takes the initiative We are all multi instrumentalists so there are always several ways to share our ideas with each other when we rehearse perform live and record Of course someone has to start but we re all quite sure about what we want to express which is why our lineup works so well together I would like to ask you about your lyrics Which direction did you decide to take in this work Which thematic do you treat I think it s important to share and express the abstract and metaphorical so that the audience can create their own meaning and impression of the words we add to the songs or sometimes just titles There is always a great need and value in giving and receiving education not only in life but in spirit To teach yourself and others what cannot be seen or felt to some To share something that isn t only an action but an inspiration to act How was the process of development and production of the album Was the result the way you expected or has it surpassed your expectations With every recording there will be obstacles as with most things in life But that is one of the things that makes it rewarding to handle it all ourselves while there is something new or special we can learn and implement into our songs and productions Expectations are meant to be surpassed or they would serve no purpose Talking about expectations how is the reception from your fans Have they been tough with your new material or did they like it It s

    proporcionándole un salto de calidad que se vio reflejado ya en el primer disco con Erik como cantante Adress the nation 2012 del que rescatan Better off alone Pero antes de la entrada del rubio H E A T ya existían y con Kenny Leckremo como voceras publicaron 2 fantásticos discos y temazos como un 1000 miles que aquí rescatan y donde los teclados de Jona Tee son los grandes protagonistas de un corte que es puro A O R Desde 2013 debido a la salida voluntaria de Dave Dalone la banda cuenta con Eric Rivers como único guitarrista Pero al contrario de lo que podría pensarse en directo la banda no se resiente y muestra de ello es el gran trabajo a las 6 cuerdas presente en It s all about tonight juego con el público incluído Tras la presentación de rigor seguimos dando cuenta de su último lanzamiento subiendo las revoluciones con Inferno y su estribillo ganador The wreckoning sirve de intro para Tearing down the walls el corte que han escogido como carta de presentación de este trabajo y que presentan acompañado de un vídeo con algunas imágenes de la actuación de esa misma noche lo que nos hace preguntarnos por qué no han sacado el DVD Mannequin show es un tema que viene con algo de polémica ya que muchos fans ven en su melodía demasiado parecido con el Oops I Did It Again de la cantante Britney Spears a mí personalmente lo que no me acaba de convencer es su estilo demasiado cercano al Pop Lo que si me convence es el A O R y de eso había mucho y muy bueno en su disco debut el homónimo H E A T de 2008 y que ahora nos recuerdan con un impresionante Late night lady ya con el público a sus pies Mucha melodía y muy buenos coros nos esperan con In and out of trouble primero y Downtown después que a modo de medios tiempos nos permiten tomarnos un pequeño respiro antes de emprender la recta final Y es que la parte final del show es de traca mayor los pelotazos Enemy in me y Emergency se encargan de cerrar la parte del setlist dedicada al nuevo álbum pero todavía queda lo mejor de lo mejor Un penúltimo Breaking the silence donde Erik se encarga de intentar dejar afónico a un público que termina por rendirse y dar el resto con el maravilloso Living on the run que pone el punto y final Podemos criticar que para ser un disco en directo sus 70 minutos se nos hagan cortos algo nos molesta que se hayan olvidado completamente de su segundo trabajo Freedom rock 2010 y nos dejen por ejemplo sin Beg beg beg pero lo que nadie puede ignorar es la evidencia de que este Live in London es todo un conciertazo una nueva muestra de que H E A T no son sólo el prometedor futuro del Rock melódico sino que ya
