Poisonblack - Lyijy Award winner

by Eldad "Blacknasa" Stainbook at 26 September 2013, 9:31 PM

Holy crap, today I'm reviewing the fucking Juggernaut POISONBLACK. Yes you are reading it correctly I'm talking about POISONBLACK and I'm going to write it one more time – POISONBLACK. No further introduction here sorry I'm not Wikipedia and if you don't know Wikipedia, so you know where you can shove you head into, just kidding with you.

This is the sixth album of this crazy Metal bunch, taking out from consideration “Escapexstacy” album that was more of Gothic Metal (btw I really liked this album), POISONBLACK albums are more of a Heavy Metal induced with some Hard Rock with several Glam influences and that's what I like about their music, taking all great Metal and Rock ingredients and mix them together. The question what did I get this time? Hopefully a new and yet again a great album, and I wrote hopefully.

Within this album there are eleven tracks, all are solid and with great production. However, not each and every one of those actually made my personal cut, but there are several that I would like to recommend. “Home Is Where The Sty Is” is a classic Heavy Metal song, it is the first song that will once again reveal the great vocals by Ville Laihiala. “Maybe Life Is Not For Everyone” coming up fifth, is a power ballad that it's so catchy and great all over, guitars are willing and riffs are classic. Nonetheless, “Death by the Blues” hails as number one. What I like to call an epic and classic. This is a song to be reminded and played for decades, sitting down with generations letting this hit pierce your ears time and time again.

All in all this is yet another great album by POISONBLACK all rock-hard and powerful, maybe not revolutionary in its sound but sometimes you should do what you are good at and not try to surprise. That's what POISONBLACK did here. Go ahead and get it.
