Fake Healer- D-Evolution

Fake Healer
D-Evolution

"D-Domain " is an introduction track that lasts for just over one minute and it almost feels like you are in a 1980’s Sci-Fi film; This does give the audience an almost futuristic/Sci-Fi vibe to the start of the album. "D-Evolution" definitely has a 1980’s feeling to it as it almost has a feeling between JUDAS PRIEST and IRON MAIDEN crossed over with 1980’s rock groups like DEF LEPPARD and AC/DC.. The vocalist’s vocal style definitely has the style of a 1980’s frontman like Joe Elliot of DEF LEPPARD and Bryan Adams. To me this song is a good song but it doesn’t have the feeling of a Heavy Metal song.

"Quantum Jump" opens up with a hard hitting guitar riff with a thumping bass guitar and drum track and then it feels like it almost softens down when the vocalist starts singing. You can definitely tell that FAKE HEALER is influenced by 1980’s rock/Glam Metal. The way the vocalist sings it is almost like Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springstien merged into one person. I must admit it is a very good song and the production and mix on the album is exceptional as you can her everything and the guitar solo is very entertaining to the listener as all guitar solos should be. "The Road Of Memories" reminds me of mid 1980’s IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST; in particular from the ‘Powerslave’ and ‘Turbo’ albums. I say this because the guitarists play a riff with such great melody that reminds us of that era of music as it starts of melodic and halfway through it goes into a hard thumping bridge followed up with another great ear splitting guitar solo.

"Christmas Truce" starts off with a slow intro which is also very calming and somewhat soothing; the way that the Christmas Truce in World War one would feel and it gives the audience a feeling of being in a war especially when the drum beat kicks in as it starts off and gets louder; and along side it the bass and electric guitars kick in. I genuinely like this song as it talks about the history of war and what it must have been like in the trenches in world war one. Another part of this song that is absolutely epic is that half way through they introduces a synthesizer that helps to build up a mood of what it would be like in the First World War and they use that brilliantly and they also put the guitars through a clean sounding channel and at the end of that another fantastic guitar solo is played. At the end of the solo the guitarists play the same part but on different parts of the fret board, which sounds awesome. Then the vocalist kicks back in with another verse to help carry on the story of the ‘Christmas Truce’ and what follows after is another totally fabulous guitar solo which ends the song with a beautifully placed fadeout to end this truly amazing song.

In conclusion I must give this album an 8/10; it has excellent production quality on all instruments, the songs are never boring to listen to but I feel that the songs themselves don’t really fit in with the other tracks. "D-Evolution" sounds like a completely different song compared to "The Road Of Memories" and the same with "Quantum Jump" and "Christmas Truce." Don’t get me wrong they are excellent tracks but I feel that the theme of the album is somewhat misguided and I wish that the tracks were similar but not the same; It’s almost like going to see an action war film and during the majority of it they do things which occur in a Victorian drama. That is why it gets an 8/10 from me; it has great songs but they don’t really stand well next to one another and the band members played their parts brilliantly especially the vocalist as the band are singing in English and they are from Italy so well done to you for singing in another language and the other members played their parts beautifully and I must say ‘Christmas Truce’ has to be my favourite song on the album.
