Feiled is a band from Finland founded in 2002 by Anton (vocals). But just now
they finally released their debut album “Testify”.
And here is what it sounds like:
The beginning of the first song “Requiem” is slightly chaotic, but
then comes down to nice rock music with nice background guitar playing that
sticks out and gives the song something dreamy and cheerful. The same dreamy
and cheerful touch you can find in the second song “Again”.
“Invincible” is a quite thoughtful song and really nice, a perfect
I really like the guitar playing on this album, as well as the vocals. It is
nice rock music that gets stuck in your head easily and most songs would even
be suitable for German radio.
The song “Lycantrophy” is a little bit chaotic again.
“Last Hope Metal” sounds like a winter fairy tale accompanied with
piano. “Just Like Heaven” is my favorite song on the album, it makes
me jump up and dance as well as sing along, and all that not only because I
know it from several samplers, but also because it simply is a great song.
“Purgatory” is a slow song with marching band music in the background.
The song “Testify” is a guite groovy one. “Breaking point”
is a quite slow song, but in the chorus it’s got some rocking riffs. The album
closes with the nice ballad “Beautiful True” mostly played with acoustic
guitar only, but with a very powerful ending. A nice album.
Along with the CD I also received a DVD including the video and the “making
of” to the song “Lycantrophy”. A fairy tale like video, really
neat to watch. It’s also very interesting to take a look behind the scenes and
seeing how the pieces of scenery are made and how much work they put into all
of that. And also how much work they put into Anton (vocals) to make him look
like a werewolf similar thing. (Couldn’t quite figure out if he’s really supposed
to be a werewolf or something else). Another neat feature on the DVD is a “making
of picture gallery”.
