CLAIRVOYANTS – THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME – VALERY
The grade received for Valery is lower than the band’s compositions and arrangements deserves for the reason that the band is far too smooth and far too commercial for its own good. The band could cut it with its chops, but after a heavy kick off riff the band yields to too many Nicklebackish moments with commercially smooth vocals. Part and parcel is many slow songs. The band almost alternates a regular rock or hard rock track with a slow one to the end.
Other notables: Endure And Survive copies Megadeth from Rust In Peace, closing number Horizon Calling invokes prog metal and sounds a la Threshold and the title track is not a Statetrooper song, but one of the better songs on the disc.
The band has a present and a future, but needs to beef up to the metal or go to the commercial Charts – one way or the other boys. – Anna Tergel
