ZANDELLE - PERSEVERANCE
(Pure Steel Records)
Review by Spirit In Black
Zandelle is a US Power Metal/Heavy Metal band that is around for 20 years. “Perseverance” is the band's fifth full-length album, if you don't count their compilation album released in 2011. “Perseverance” is packed with US Power/Heavy Metal complete with keyboards, sing a long parts, catchy guitar solo's and so on. Music wise it's all done very well and the vocals fit perfectly with the music Zandelle plays. You can hear they aren't around since yesterday!
The only thing that is somewhat weak about the album is the production. The sound is a bit thin. Because of that, the music does not come to it's fullest. I just miss that bit of extra power on this album.
This review might be a bit short but to write about every single song into detail isn't necessary with “Perseverance”. Fans of Zandelle or US Metal in general know what to expect!
