I have to admit, hard rock / melodic metal has an undeniable place in my DNA. A palm muted distorted power chord immediately unlocks positive points in my psyche. Add to that my sweet spot for metal ballads and you can see why I am reviewing Sweet Curse.
Revamp is a band that I recently found out about. They are a melodic metal band with operatic female vocals (a great one in Floor Jansen) and occasional male growl. This form factor is something I generally like (also seen in Nightwish, Epica etc…). I found out about them through a friend mentioning Mayan (a new band formed by some Epica members). Floor sang on some tracks for them. It’s funny how music discovery works these days.
