Frozen Tears: Slaves

Frozen Tears: Slaves

Heavy Metal/Power Metal
Rating: 2.5/5.0

I'll try to make this review as painless and short as possible ... Frozen Tears is heavy metal band from Italy; their latest and fifth release is 'Slaves.' Generally, this work approaches their usual standard of heavy metal mixed, with some power metal for good measure. A least this was the best I could surmise after listening to only the first six. Actually, I wanted to give up after number four, but I pressed on bravely until I could take no more. Overall, this is fine heavy metal: sound arrangements with an outstanding rhythm section and blistering lead guitar from Angelo Bonechi. What killed my 'Slaves' listening experience was the horrid vocals of Taiti Alessio. Honestly, I could not determine if Mr. Alessio is simply a terrible metal singer or simply can't sing. All I know is that I found him excruciatingly unbearable. This is a sad report because there's some real talent and good heavy metal here.

In Short

Frozen Tears latest 'Slaves' is a better than average heavy metal work which is grounded and made painful to listen to thanks to the unbearable lead vocals.
