Black Rainbows - Pandaemonium

Black Rainbows

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: BLACK RAINBOWS; signed via Heavy Psych Sound Records, hailing from Italian grounds - performing Psychedelic Stoner Metal, on their 6th studio album entitled: “Pandaemonium” (released April 6th, 2018).

Since formation in 2005; the quintet in question have 5 albums behind them, having reviewed their previous album “Stellar Prophecy”; I was surprised to see BLACK RAINBOWS return with yet another record in a short amount of time, and that is entitled: “Pandaemonium”. 9 tracks ranging at around 45:32 - the quartet deliver an intricately designed formula of heavy-hitting psychedelic, stoner metal distinctions. Starting off with “Sunrise”; the fuzzy sound production immediately grabs my attention, conveying captivating melodies that contrast with concrete enlightenments and mesmerizing fulfilments - the aesthetic provides fluidly organic substances which demonstrate progressively solid technicalities that are quite proficient.

Consisting of GABRIELE FIORI on vocals/guitars/keyboards, who consistently supplies a complex slab of dexterity and grit. “High To Hell” showcases the grandiose manifestation of diligently composed executions that portrays an efficient amount of high-pitched vocalizations, with an amalgamation of raw roughness. Crushing rhythms in the next song “The Sacrifice”, constructing melodious attributions which distributes battering pummelling from ALBERTO CROCE, pulverizing his mettle with determined relentlessness. “Grindstone” establishes unique songwriting adroitness and more blisteringly thunderous savagery, the creativity to detail here results with a diligent assault of bouncy and catchy efficaciousness.

Supernova & Asteroids” onslaughts with a frenzied barrage of menacing bass stability from powerhouse GIUSEPPE GUGLIELMINO, flourishing with audible loudness with next to none distortion. “Riding Fast ‘Til The End Of Time” experiments with dynamically dominate harmonics, rampaging with epic riffs and solos and distinguished craftsmanship. “I Just Wanna Fire” excels with meticulous effectiveness, balanced with uncompromised characteristics - that have a gripping flamboyancy to it. “The Abyss” relished with original memorability, as the vast ramifications shows off the diverse variability BLACK RAINBOWS have expertly invented - overall concluding the record with the elegant “13th Step Of The Pyramid”.

Bottom line; “Pandaemonium” is a remarkable record, it felt seamingly similar to the previous record…only with unprecedented results which had me enjoying this experience - worth discovering.
