2 recensioni per SKANNERS Temptation

  1. From Metalitalia : Dal 1982 gli Skanners si sono imposti come una delle realtà italiane più longeve ed amate dal pubblico. In questi trentasette anni di onorata carriera, Claudio Pisoni e Fabio Tenca ci hanno riempito di mazzate sonore grazie al loro heavy metal classico, potente, diretto e di scuola squisitamente teutonica. Con il nuovo “Temptation” la formazione di Bolzano rincara la dose con colate di puro metallo devastante, nerboruto, coinvolgente e anche melodico quando serve. Parlando di melodie, queste non sono di casa nell’opener “In Flammen 666”: qui gli Skanners spingono fino a sconfinare in lidi thrash metal, forti di una devastante sezione ritmica e di parti vocali rabbiose e sporche. Chiusa questa parentesi, con “Rays In the Darkness” si ritorna all’heavy classico, un mid tempo alla tedesca dal ritornello infarcito di cori che entra subito in testa. L’ascolto prosegue con “Rolling In The Fire”, più melodica e orecchiabile del brano precedente, ma altrettanto determinata. Claudio Pisoni al microfono si conferma un fuoriclasse, in grado di cambiare tonalità senza risentirne: i suoi acuti sono ormai un marchio di fabbrica. “Cut My Heart” cambia mood al disco, più oscura e pesante, sembra uno dei brani più introspettivi dei Primal Fear. Le bordate veloci ovviamente non mancano (“Lost In Paradise”), qui gli Skanners danno il meglio. Uno dei pezzi più interessanti di questo “Temptation” risponde al nome di “The Letter”, un mid tempo roccioso in cui spicca il cantato corale e pensato per far cantare il pubblico durante i concerti. A conti fatti, degli undici capitoli di questo nuovo lavoro nessuno stanca, nessuno mostra cali qualitativi, nessun riempitivo, siamo di fronte a cinquanta minuti di grande heavy metal made in Italy. Anche sul versante produzione nulla da eccepire, il disco vanta suoni belli spinti che metteranno a dura prova le casse dei nostri impianti, ma che allo stesso tempo prestano attenzione alle parti più melodiche. La classe non è acqua, indipendentemente dall’età anagrafica, con “Temptation” gli Skanners danno una sonora lezione ad un sacco di giovani band, a livello di song-writing, qualità di esecuzione e groove. Quando c’è da tirare legnate i bolzanesi non si tirano indietro, anzi corriamo il rischio di farci davvero del male. Questo male però piace a noi amanti del metallo.

  2. From Metaltemple : Italy’s SKANNERS has been at it for almost 40 years, playing traditional Heavy Metal with slight Power Metal influences. Born of the ‘80’s music scene in Italy and signed to a major label, they were the chosen ones in a scene that birthed many lesser-celebrated, but no-less-worthy bands, like STRANA OFFICINA, VANADIUM, CRYING STEEL and GUNFIRE, among many others who struggled to break out. Despite a short time away during the grunge period of the ‘90’s, they never quit, releasing a steady stream of albums throughout the 2000’s and they’re currently out with a seventh full-length, “Temptation.”

    The band contains two original members, vocalist Claudio Pisoni, and guitarist and backbone of the group, Fabio Tenca. These two ensure that the classic SKANNERS sound is alive on “Temptation,” an album that flirts with modern Germanic Power Metal tropes. Remarkably, Pisoni is as strong as ever, sounding very Ralf Scheepers-ish, especially on the double-bass driven “Lost In Paradise” and the almost-Doomy “Cut My Heart.” The album starts with “In Flammen 666,” a bit of a darker-than-usual turn for the group, but it’s effective, with a kind of Middle Eastern melodic chorus that connects. “Rays In The Darkness,” also revolves around a strong chorus with some layered backing vocals. “Rolling In The Fire,” is a formulaic, old school rocker with a dated attitude. “Demons of Tomorrow,” has a distinctly HELLOWEEN chorus, but the band still plays with a personality cultivated and honed over many years.

    There’s eleven songs of pure melodic heaviness here, nothing too challenging, but all emotionally charged. “The Eye,” is one of my favorites, with a timely “Big Brother is watching you” message. “The Letter” is a powerful tune with a nifty tiered guitar solo (Walter Unterhauser shares guitar duties with Tenca). “Always Remember” is a heartfelt ballad written about a fallen roadie of the band. SKANNERS remains a fan favorite in their home country, as well as in Germany and Austria, where the locals appreciate a good melodic Power Metal assault. They never did make it in the States—and I don’t think that will change with this release–but the band certainly has nothing to feel bad about by continuing to put out strong material like this. With the seemingly ageless duo of Pisoni and Tenca at the helm, the future remains bright.
