HOPE DIES LAST “Trust No One”

HOPE DIES LAST
“Trust No One”
(Standby Records)
I might be getting older but I still love metal even if its shape has changed over the years. When I got into it back in the 80s NWOBHM was the thing of the day. Today it is so different with all these different genres to choose from. Italy’s Hope Dies Last sound anything but Italian. Thos could easily be mistaken for an American band. Or for Sweden’s Sonic Syndicate for that matter. This is melodic, modern metal with screamy contra clean vocals. I have no idea what to call this kind of metal but for some reason I like what Hope Dies Last has accomplished. There is something infectious to their metal that I find thoroughly entertaining. I guess that they have found the right balance between aggression and melody for me to dig in deep on their metal dish. Anders Ekdahl
