BOOL ”Fly With Me”

”Fly With Me”
(Boersma Records)

Battle Helm Rating

I am a stickler for band names. It has to feel right for me to pick it up. A band name like Satan’s Penguins doesn’t sound too cool and yes, that is an actual band name. BOOL might have another meaning in their native tongue but to me that just sounds like some sort of canned food manufacturer. So it is good that I am not a food critique. I don’t really know how to describe this. To my ears it is too hard to be called alt rock. I guess it is best described as alt metal even though that isn’t too correct either. The tempo isn’t too up beat and there is a melancholic feel to this that I don’t hear too often in German bands. For some reason this makes me think of Spain’s Hereos Del Silencio only more restraint. What I really miss is that bigger than life feeling. The emotions on the outside kind of feeling. But despite that I find myself liking this the more I listen to it. Anders Ekdahl
