Innerwish - Silent Faces
Besides being known as the cradle of democracy, Athens (Greece) is also the home of [b]Innerwish[/b], a melodic powermetal band which was formed in 1995. Their third full-length album, [i]Silent Faces[/i]. Well, I’ll be straight to the point on this one. The music is not much different from any other good powermetal bands who actively produce material nowadays. The band’s influences are among others: [b]Riot[/b], [b]Jag Panzer[/b] and [b]Queensryche[/b]. What disappointed me a little is that they don’t really have an own sound (and I literally mean SOUND) in their music. On a compilation album which I happen to own they don’t really draw much attention to themselves. They sort of ‘blend in the masses’. Which can be seen as a good thing too: they can’t be put aside as a band which doesn’t have the right to be in the powermetal scene. They’re from Greece, but they’re just as good as many well-known american heavy metal bands! [b]Innerwish[/b] manages to write powerful songs and the melodies are very catchy at times. [i]If I Could Turn Back Time[/i], for example, is one hell of a good song. Catchy to the root and with nice guitarriffs, this song came out of my speakers a lot more than once. The vocals of Babis reminded me a bit of those of [b]Falconer[/b] vocalist Karl Kristoffer Göbel. Babis has the same power, melody and emotion in his vocal chords as Karl, which is a big compliment towards this promising Greek singer. The music, although it’s technical most of the time, still reaches a wide audience. And that’s worth a lot. I very much enjoyed listening to this album, but it just wasn’t enough to get me all-out enthousiastic. [b]Innerwish[/b] shows a lot of potential, though. So keep your eyes and ears wide open!
