Burning Saviours - Nymphs & Weavers
Burning Saviours is a band hailing from Sweden and was founded in 2003 by Mikael Marjanen and Martin Wijkström. After several demos and three albums, they unleashed Nymphs & Weavers on mankind. Is it a blessing or a curse?
 
Burning Saviours was started with the main aim to form a heavy rock/doom metalband and well, they have succeeded! Indeed they play heavy seventies rock with some (oldschool) doom elements. They wear their main influence on their sleeves namely: Black Sabbath. They also mix it up with some Uriah Heep elements and elements from bands like Candlemass or Cathedral but then a more light version of those bands.
 
Their music doesn´t contain any remarkable features. Though one factor really gives this band a hit or miss element and that´s the singer. He makes it very hard for me to review this album and give it a proper score. You either love his voice or hate it. I´m stuck in between. The first spin I really thought that Fredrik sings god-awful. My first impression was that his voice didn´t fit the music and that he sometimes sounds like he´s gasping for air. The following spins I got used to his voice and learned to tolerate it.
 
As mentioned the music itself isn´t groundbreaking. I have to admit that I sometimes got a bit bored with the songs. Too much the same pace and a glaring lack of diversity make me conclude that they really have to do something about their song writing skills. Because if they will follow on this foot I´m afraid they won´t go anywhere soon. Maybe finding an excellent singer will help….
