Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins: “Pawn and Prophecy” – Dense, dynamic and super tight

There is no doubt that “Pawn and Prophecy” is going to garner some serious praise. This album puts the ‘classic’ back in metal in a definitive kind of fashion. The album represents the direction many true metal fans hoped and presumed the genre would go after all the ridiculous sub-genres that crawled out of the woodwork over the past few years. This album basically sows the seeds for a whole new generation of power metal – one with technique, speed and aggression that has no regard for radio-friendly or corporate rock elements. There is no denying the awe-inspiring quality and

Newborn: “Shadow Of Your Heart” – atmospheric, beefy, and more than a little radio friendly!

The single, “Shadow Of Your Heart” is a successful demonstration of the progression of Newborn as a band. With emblematic lyrically content, well-crafted vocals, and brilliant instrumentation, this is the gem of the band’s catalog thus far. Cathartically channeling their 90’s grunge predecessors, the beautiful bone-chilling arrangement takes in various genre influences to deliver something intrinsically their own. The band’s credentials as musicians have never been in question since their debut release, but even so, the seamless nature with which they gel is impressive. And while the driving rhythm section and guitars never fail to keep things interesting, it’s vocally

Natalie Jean: “All I Want” offers up a perspective of love, fidelity and relationships

Authenticity is one of those indefinable traits that many artists search and pursue, but never quite find. You can’t build authenticity into a song through a particular gathering of words and phrases; you can’t swagger, pine or shout your way there. It just happens when you put yourself out there, daring people to listen, asking the audience to believe whatever your stories are trying to communicate. It’s an achievement that award winning, multi-nominated singer-songwriter, and Grammy voting member, Natalie Jean manages by never over singing, by using lyrical poetry that sounds like it exists now, as well as in a

Steven Blane: “Kill Me Nice” – the lure of the storytelling is a powerful magnet

From the moment I viewed the album cover of “Kill Me Nice”, I knew we had winner from Steven Blane, a jazz performer who writes, sings and plays the ukulele, piano as well as the guitar. I was drawn immediately into the warmth of his unique, tender and catchy style and incredible lyrical poetry. The excellent band gives sterling support and the beguiling light pop-jazz rhythms are just magical. I really can’t stop playing it. I listen in the lounge, in my studio and it’s also very relaxing on my car journeys. Every track is a gem, my favorites of the moment being “Coffee Understands”, “Too Beautiful For Words”, “You Once Killed A Guy” and “Spark”.

Apart from being able to turn up the intensity and energy when he wants, Steven Blane is a poet masquerading as a terrific songwriter and his slower songs perfectly celebrate his warmly sophisticated vocals, which is why I adore the above-mentioned songs. Steven never misses a beat. His timing is on key. The melodies ooze from his musical pores. He’s ability to ease up and down on notes is absolutely effortless, while the words emerge from his lips like a vintage rhyme. He speaks from the heart, and sets it to music.

Steven Blane’s, is the kind of music that makes one say “ooh,” as the blood pressure comes down, the shoulders relax, and the stress melts away with each note. Also worth a mention is the absurdly high quality of the recording itself. Every nuance of sound is captured here with incredible clarity, detail and warmth. Taken as a whole, the mood that is set, the instrumentation, the production and the topics of the songs add up to one awesome album.

I will be honest; my expectations were extremely high considering that Steven Blane is an experienced and world-weary musician. Furthermore he finds himself in a genre which allows many things but does not accept technical insufficiency. However, the music is nothing short of excellent with Steven proving to be a spotless tune-oriented craftsman. “Kill Me Nice” is romantic, nostalgic, lush, and a really good time musically.

Overall, this album has much to offer the listener who is looking for a style of music that conjures settings that are graphically perceivable, where the lure of the storytelling is a powerful magnet to many of us. And one where the artist is able to describe life’s discontent, its pleasures and the beauty of what is all around him. This is an album that is richly textured, mature, and shows Steven Blane at the top of his game. Crafty lyrics and top rate musicianship is trumped by one fine voice!
