Loreweaver biography
Italian act LOREWEAVER was formed back in 2008, when Barbara Rubin (vocals) hooked up with a band at that time consisting of Francesco Salvadeo (guitars), Giordano Mattiuzzo (bass), Lorenzo Marcenaro (keyboards) and Andrea Mazza (drums). This new unit opted to chosse Loreweaver as their new moniker, and progressive metal to be their style of choice.

They recorded their debut album Imperviae Auditiones soon after, which was initially self-released in 2009. Drummer Mazza left the band shortly after, and was replaced by Claudio Cavalli (drums). Since then the band has ben picked up by Italian label SG Records, who officially released their album in the summer of 2011.

3 stars LoreWeaveR is a promising italian progressive metal band with strong female vocals. Their second album, 'Italic' is nothing revolutionary within this realm, yet it is quite enjoyable despite some flaws.

As specified earlier, the great thing about LoreWeaveR is that they have a singer with a staggering voice (a good comparison would be Patricia Tapia of spanish melodic hard-rock band Nexx). However, she doesn't reach the high notes as often as expected, preferring instead the wounded whispered chant. The first two songs might get on your nerves with their bland rehash of Dream Theater-like prudent rhythm patterns blended with the sinister and hesitating guitars akin to djent metal, another over-used feature of modern progressive metal. These two tracks are saved by a catchy chorus showcasing great vocal performance and by more inspired bridges. The band really sounds like a cover band on these songs, which is a pity because the remainder of the album is pure gold. And, indeed, "Lionheart" denotes a very dynamic side with faster pace, swirling and orchestral keyboards, together with daring vocals: there you feel that the band has a true personality. From this track on, drums are more colorful and more creative, keyboards deliver a broader range of sounds, while the voice of Barbara Rubin flies towards unreachable skies. As an illustration of wider keyboard array, lend an ear to the cabaret-like piano on "Vae Victis", but also those accordion-like layers on "Angry Tears", or even the eerie layers reminiscent of Pieter Nooten on "The river suite". The guitar riff of Pantera's "Walk" all along "Vae Victis" comes a bit surprising, just as the pop vibe instilled by the impassioned duet in italian language on the bonus track "Soldatino industriale", but they spice up the music without making it sound too goofy.

In the end, I have mixed feelings about this album. It doesn't start in the most inspiring way, but then quite unexpectedly a boost of energy and creativity makes sparks fly and a smile comes back on our face. I would rate it 4/5 but with regard to my complaint on the first two songs, and a preference of the vocalist for whispered chant, it's rather a solid 3,5.

3 stars Italian band LOREWEAVER was formed back in 2008, and hit the studio shortly after their conception to record material for their initial full length production. The end result became the CD "Imperviae Auditiones", at first self released in 2009 and then reissued in 2001 following the band signing to SG Records.

"Imperviae Auditiones" is a CD that showcases a talented band that still needs to develop their craft. With many fine details throughout, and a fairly sophisticated take on classic progressive metal, they do have a bit to offer those who have an interest in progressive metal acts attempting to shy away from the most thoroughly explored parts of this universe. But the overall result is ever so slightly flawed on this occasion, a rough gem in need of further polish. An album worth seeking out by those who appreciate and enjoy listening to a band with good ideas not yet fully realized.
