mandragora scream Volturna (CD, £12.95)label: Massacre
Established Italian dark gothic rock band Mandragora Scream release their fourth highly anticipated album. Having already shared stages with Mortiis in Europe and appeared on many international compilations including Beautiful Voices, Volturna is an explosive sixteen track gothic metal album with a strong industrial component accompanying the new melodies created by Terry Horn. This doesn't nevertheless mean the loss of the basic characteristic of the band, the vampire/gothic influence, thanks to some classical inserts played by unusual instruments such as a harpsichord and the superb vocal performance by Morgan Lacroix who strongly marks as usual the Mandragora Scream style. Volturna is an album in which great melodies and fantastic lyrics are present.
