2 stars On the third release by German based project Heartscore, there are some interesting experiments; but also quite a few that are slightly flawed.

Most of the tunes are metal-influenced tunes, most times dominated by asynchron or quirky guitar riffs and/or rhythms; creating slightly original moods and melodies. Some tunes have other influences though; and the most successful tune on the album, the 10 minute long final composition The Miller's Wife, is one of those. A symphonic number with folk and classical influences, it's the clear highlight here.

The main weakness n this release are the vocals; both style and performance tends to be a mismatch with the melody much too often. Fans of quirky and experimental music might have an interest in this one though, especially those feeling that vocal performance is of secondary importance.

Windhawk | 2/5 |
