CHILDREN OF SERAPH EP
Well, what do we have here? This is nothing less than pure heavy metal full of melody and the illusion of making homage to the big names of the genre.
Coming from Washington, these young guys composed a quite decent EP forged in the most traditional, honest and strong spirit of heavy metal. Of course they have influences from many sources, but they made a superlative effort to create an own style, and although they still are an amateur band, they don’t sound bad at all!! These four tracks are really good and we can hear roots in the most epic side of the genre. I must say that I’m impressed with guitar work of Nathanyel Nieves, who seems to be the main composer. Also, clean vocalist Collazo has very good school and seems like he is big fan of big dudes like Dio, Dickinson, etc. No doubt this band has to fix some problems here and there, but the road is shinny and clear, and I hope they’ll record more stuff soon. – Victor Varas
