[schema type=”review” name=”Mirrorplain – Path of Salvation” description=”Label: FASTBALL-MUSIC” author=”Sabine van Gameren” pubdate=”2017-09-08″ ]Mirrorplain is a melodic Rock formation with a dark touch that released two EP’s so far. Now the band is ready for the release of a full length album called “Path of Salvation”. It is available now.
The Germans have a good idea of what they want to bring. The music is catchy, and easy to listen. Some of the songs you feel like you have heard before, taken some inspiration of the golden oldies of pop music, but the band wraps it into their own sound, making it interesting enough to keep on board.
When the catchiness of the songs is quite the main attraction, the band has a certain heaviness in there as well. That raw edge that is on the vocals is giving the whole some extra punch, which comes forward nicely in a song like “Unsought”.
Variation is there in plenty, the band gives a variety of songs that shows of the diverse sides of them, from a more intimate song towards the harder power track, they are all to be found in the release. The final track, a bonus track called “Jerz Off” is a bit of an odd one. Probably somehow more as a joke or something that was meant for something entirely different as it does not really match to well with what the rest brings. But then again, it is a bonus track.
Altogether this album is quite interesting. Some dark and melodic pop/rock songs that listen easily, an entertaining album that we can imagine to equal an energetic live performance.
