Calico Jack – ‘Panic in the Harbour’ (EP 2013)
Release: 5 October 2013
Rather new in the world of Folk Metal, I made the choice to review the album. What strikes the most, is the poetry of the album. Music and lyrics are in harmony. The only unexpected surprise is this is mostly speedmetal, and one must like it a great deal.
The first notes of the very first song raise the expectation of a musical spectacle. Happy notes from the violin, combined with well balanced speedmetal and a heck of a baritone voice. This is perfect for a night out, or just to work with. Twice as fast I completed my activities as a seamstress and endured less stress with this happy music. One simply can’t feel depressed with this music blasting from your speakers.
Considering the earlier albums from this band, there is a change in music. It’s becoming more adult, but the youthful naughtiness from earlier musical escapades is still clearly audible.
For the fan, a must have.
Even when you’re not a fan, or new in this world, it’s certainly worthy of your time.
