(Orkestral Promenade Productions)
Show Your Face are totally unknown to me but this is actually their third release. That can happen when you’re Greek and release albums on small national labels that hardly sell albums outside of their native country. Or it happens simply because I haven’t read the right magazines or even cared for the band’s name. Whatever the reason might be I’m excited to have come upon Show Your Face. Label it metalcore or call it melodeath, I don’t care. “Unleash” reminds me of the Gothenburg school of metal and I don’t mean In Flames or Dark Tranquillity exclusively but the whole Gothenburg scene of the late 90s/early 00s. And I like it. I like it more than I thought I would. This is quite technical but still melodic metal of the more extreme kind. It made me think of bands like Taetre or Gardenian. Bands I haven’t thought about in a long time. Highly recommended. Anders Ekdahl
