Adastra - Corroder of Minds Award winner

Corroder of Minds
by Sharon "Metal Chick" Bar-Or at 06 August 2012, 10:00 PM

So… this is the third album of ADASRTA, and I have to tell you that it can't get any better than this! These five extremely talented guys give everything in “Corroder of Minds” and they're sure not afraid to show it. An excellent album to a hell of a Hard Rock / Heavy Metal band!

These Finnish dudes are speaking in the Metal with old- school kind of language and they are influenced by the greatest Heavy Metal gods such as METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST and IRON MAIDEN so you know it has so be good.

Let's talk about the band members, shall we? Ville Siikamaki (Vocals)- It has been a while since I heard such a wide range of voices in one man but that's nothing when it comes to the infinite vocal nature that Ville brings to “Corroder of Minds”: It's like every track he sounds like Bruce Dickinson or James Hertfield however he brings his own nature of voice to it and that's exactly what I always wish to listen to. Well done!

Jari Hartman and Olli Anttila (Guitars) – So I think these two gifted guys just made me a fan of theirs. What a fine guitar artwork from both of them. They use the IRON MAIDEN kind of character guitar work especially at almost of each chorus/solo of “Corroder of Minds”. This Murray / Smith / Gers triangle (Which what I like to call "The IRON MAIDEN Triangle") is extremely good. God job guys! Snateri Vauramo (Bass) So I become hypnotized when I hear bass guitar sounds. However, besides a small but awesome part at the first track "Ripcord Rock", I can barely hear the bass and this is not a good thing. So please, ADASTRA, give some limelight to the bass. Jussi Ruokolainen (Drums) Wow! And the credit goes to… Jussi! For his dammed good drum work!! Such a good variety of drumming techniques and each and every one of those are very powerful which made me realized that this dude owns them all!!! Hell yeah!!!

“Corroder of Minds” is basically a corroder of an "A1 quality" of instrumentally / vocally / lyrically / melodically art work but unfortunately, no connection between the tracks; I expected from ADASRTRA, which is influenced by some of the greatest metal bands of all times, to have an album concept. Each end every one of the tracks is amazingly good of its own but I need some connection line between all.

ADASTRA’s “Corroder of Minds” will bring all Heavy Metal fans a corroder of first class fine art work!!
