MOLLUST “Bach Con Fuoco”

“Bach Con Fuoco”
This German band describe their metal as opera metal. So it comes as no surprise that they’ve taken on JS Bach on this EP. I’m no connoisseur of opera. I often find it tedious and pointless but I might change my mind after having heard this EP. Who knows, you might find me at the opera house in Gothenburg in the not so distant future. Not having any greater knowledge of Bach’s repertoire it is hard to have any sort of opinion on how true to the originals MOLLUST are. All I can go on is my gut feeling. I do like classical music; I’m just not too well educated in it. All I can say about this is that it is heavy and very metal. Had you heard this without any prior knowledge as to what it is you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was all originals. Maybe it is true that classical was the heavy metal of its time. Two thumps up for MOLLUST. Anders Ekdahl
