BLACK ROSE “A Light In The Dark”

“A Light In The Dark”
(Sliptrick Records)

Battle Helm Rating

This is a Swedish band that has been at it for a while yet I cannot for the sake of my life remember ever having heard them before. Having formed in 1990 and releasing their first album in 1993 they are veterans on the Swedish heavy metal scene. As I listen to this I realize that this is a band that I should be familiar with as the heavy metal they play is the kind that I would have liked even back in 1993. As I sit here and try to figure out what it is they remind me of I find myself nodding my head in approval. This is in a way typical Swedish melodic metal and it is good. Perhaps not as obvious as some other acts but you hear it is there. I would say that there is a slight AOR leaning too in the sound. Good stuff nonetheless. Anders Ekdahl
