Remission of Sin

Rated 3.4/5 (68%) (5 Votes)

The new Burning Black album, Remission of Sin, is a straightforward, crunchy Power Metal affair so much in the Hibria mold that the Brazilian band was all I could think of every time I spun the album. There are worse bands to sound like, though I'm not much of a Hibria fan, but it certainly isn't going to get you labeled "new." The guitars have a great tone and the album overall has an expansive sound but the vocalist's screams get old fast because they sound recycled from one song to the next. Almost every song sounds like it was cast from the same mold, one that is good but not great. That is until the closer, "True Metal Jacket." This one departs from the formula, though the omnipresent screams are not abandoned, and possesses just has a little more variety to the songwriting than the rest.

If crunchy Power Metal is your thing you won't hate Remission of Sin but it isn't breaking ant new ground.
