Maple Cross - Next Chapter
I was looking for record labels, when I came across this band from Finland. Maple Cross has signed with the relatively small Verikauha Records and they almost instantly sent me their new material. Next Chapter is the name of the record and I expected almost anything before I listened to it. I just did not expect this kind of blending mix of Rock N Roll, Thrash and Melodic Death metal. The first song instantly fired up my engine. Entitled The Spirit Of Northern Brotherhood this song is a strange mix between thrash metal like Sodom and Exodus and music like Danko Jones. This is not the only style theyve used. I also noticed some Queens Of The Stone Age influences flowing throughout the riffs. I was a bit whipped back because of the voice. Its like biting through a bitter core or something like that, but after a couple of songs I began to like the special way hes screaming and singing his lyrics. For Instance, take World Wide Mystery, in which he lays out several styles of vocals. The album rocks and thrashes along for a good 35 minutes in which we have been astonished by the play of Maple Cross. The joy of playing an instrument is heard on this album and that gives it just that distinctive touch, which other bands still are looking for. After hearing this record, I wanted to play it again, and again. I did and found out I was feeling myself a lot better. Its the joy of playing that fires of this record, and if you like some fun for yourself, just try looking for this and give it a shot. Im quite positive that this album has sold quite well already.
