CD REVIEW Darktribe

Band : Darktribe
Album title : Mysticeti Victoria
Label : Massacre Records
Distributor : Suburban
Release Date : 24/08/2012
Release : CD

‘Mysticeti Victoria’ is Darktribe’s debut album. The band consists of two brothers, Anthony Agnello on vocals, and Julien on drums.  The other members are their long time friends Bruno Caprani on bass and Loïe Manuello on guitars.  These four produce European power metal, with some progressive elements in it.

What strikes me with a lot of French metal bands, be it those from the eighties like Satan’s Joker, Warning, H-Bomb, or bands from now, is that most French vocalists tend to have a rather high pitches sound.  One of the big exceptions herein being Vulcain and Trust of course.

The music this quartet produces is awesome, the only minor point there is is that the English accent of singer Anthony could be improved, but that’s about it.  For a young band this album is stunningly good.
