The Awakening

  1. From Heavy Metal Heaven : Nel loro paese sono probabilmente la metal band più conosciuta; in più, sono una delle poche ad essere uscite indenne dagli anni ’90, periodo decisamente movimentato per uno stato come l’Albania. Stiamo parlando dei Crossbones, band nata nel 1996, che ancora resiste, nonostante i tanti cambi di line up, tanto che solo Olsi Ballta, il vocalist, è un elemento originale del gruppo.

    I Crossbones ritornano dopo un paio di anni di silenzio e soprattutto di tour europei, con il loro nuovo album, The Awakening, dove affrontano un interessante groove metal con forti influenze più alternative, a volte pure un po’ troppe.
    Chiariamo, l’album è abbastanza variegato e questo fa in modo che non sia monotono, però è anche vero che alle volte i Crossbones si perdono: danno il meglio di loro quando spingono sull’acceleratore. Le parti alternative sono belle, ma si perdono ed è un peccato. Under My Scars e Man-made God sono due pezzi formidabili ed è questa strada che devono continuare a percorrere.

    Insomma, gli albanesi non sono male e se vi state approcciando al groove metal da generi più melodici. Se invece siete ormai metallari sfegatati, forse il connubio vi risulterà più ostico da digerire. Io comunque darei loro un’opportunità.

  2. From Planetmosh: CROSSBONES is the most recognized metal act in Albania and the only band from the mid 90’s that still keeps going, today stronger than ever. Their new album “WWIII” is making quite a buzz since its launch in January 13th 2017. The news has spread throughout 3 continents, Europe, USA and Australia in about 100 webzines and portals with great reviews. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Tommy Talamanca (Sadist) at Nadir Music Studios. “WWIII” combines American thrash metal influences with a dark sound and typical Est European sonorities. The result is an album created with the intention of hit hard the ears of the listener without losing melodic passages and “catchy” riffs, and where the recurring use of both English and Albanian languages marks a new way in the European post-thrash genre. Among countless gigs and performances, CROSSBONES have played with Rock and Metal giants such as Ian Paice, legendary drummer of Deep Purple and as a direct support act for Greek Black Metal legends of Rotting Christ. Furthermore the band has headlined many concerts and festivals in Italy, Greece, FYROM, Montenegro, Kosovo, toured in Baltics (Estonia and Latvia), Ukraine and headlined Balkan Metal Meeting 4 Tuzla/Bosnia, April 27-28 2018, and more.
