Eldritch - Neighbourhell
Eldritch. Never heard of them, but they are from Italy and "Neighbourhell" is their sixth full lenght in their 15 year old career. The guys started out as a melodic metal/thrash kind of affair, but these days they play (According to the bio) a mix of "modern/technical/melodic/power/thrash". I would say that its mostly powermetalish (because of the clean vocals) with good thrashmetal moments but also segments that reminded me a bit the later material of Soilwork.

Opener "Still Screaming’ didnt really catch my attention because of its general heavy metal-ism. Good thing the band manages to spice things up in other songs: "Save Me" features a Chugga-Chugga verse riff that would make a typical american band proud. It almost sounds cliche but Terence Holler’s powerfull clean vocals actually make it sound good. My personal favorite is "Come to Life", a song that reminded me of a situation of what would happen if Dimebag Darrel would be jamming with Dream Theater. Crushing riffs, sing-along-chorus, cool breakdown, some blazing solo work and a nice end. If you don’t like this tune, you just dont like this band or metal in general.

With "Neighbourhell" Eldritch show that they are a band capable of playing different styles of metal, but also manage to make that diversity result into an quite an original sound. I do have to say that power-metal haters will have a hard time because of the vocals, but if you can appreciate it you`ll find a fine metal disc in this record. It doesnt really have many "brilliant" moments but its the overal quality that speaks for itself.
