after the disappointing Blood of Saints (for me), I thought I was done with this band. now I am glad I came across their new album only to find out how much they changed their style. they now sound like later Mercenary and they do it well :) I like it!
We are sad to say that Magnus will not be a member of ENGEL anymore. We had a really good run and we will miss him very much. There is no hard feelings between ENGEL and Magnus and we parted ways as friends, carrying with us a lot of good times and awesome memories.
Needed a lot of time to grow on me and even after that the new album is lame and boring for me. Two maybe three songs might be enjoyable (not great tracks, though) but all in all very, very disappointing. After Question Your Place it was obvious Engel was putting more electronic stuff in it, which is fine with me (as long as it is not that sickness called dubstep) but they totally lost the focus when it comes to kick ass riffs, straight-in-your-face-rhythms/swing-your-goddamn-head-to-the-rhytm-sound as on their prior works like in For Those Who Will Resist, Roll The Dice, Propaganda, In Splendour and so on.. Really sad..
waited for this album for so long... but i must say im really disappointed. I knew they're going to put some electronic mix but i guess this is too much, its just not my type of music. prefer the dark engel :(
The full live report of Engel in Tokyo is available here : http://en.metalship.org/livereports/316 Despite being rather static, the band knows how to stir a crowd. They play for the very first time live their new song “Frontline”, part of their upcoming album “Blood of Saints”
