Last year Crystal Crow, who comes from Germany, released their latest self financed mini CD, in which they included four tracks and gave it the title "Love Again".
The band walks on dark metal paths with influences from bands like PARADISE LOST and MOONSPELL as far as their dark/gothic elements are concerned, but they have also written some complicated tracks so we can say that they combine some progressive touches in their sound as well.
Generally their compositions are well worked with interesting structures and nice ideas. The vocals are mainly clean but some times, when it fits perfectly to the arrangement we hear some death metal growls too.
To close this review I can say that Crystal Crow has all the elements to make the break through in the mainstream metal scene and I am sure that we will soon hear from them something really good. Surely the fans of dark/gothic metal will adore the stuff from Crystal Crow!
