Pretty Maids - Carpe Diem (CD)

Pretty Maids
Carpe Diem
by Yiannis Mitsakos at 01 February 2001, 2:36 AM

Danish metallers Pretty Maids strike again, after 2 years, with their new album Carpe Diem, proving they are still alive and kicking in the dawn of the new millenium.
Carpe Diem is characterized for its refreshed sound. This isn't only in terms of production, which is certainly much clearer than in Anything Worth Doing Is Worth Overdoing, but their style has changed to a much modern approach of melodic Metal. This change is very pleasant, and the result equally good. Carpe Diem is heavier than its predecessor, with songs new for Pretty Maids (Until It Dies e.g.) but without loosing touch with their more classical past (Invisible Chains).
Conclusively Carpe Diem is a very good album, quite better than Anything Worth Doing Is Worth Overdoing, but without reaching their highest levels, reached with Future World. In a few words, a decent and fresh try by Pretty Maids.
