Eve to Dawn by Loudness
Released: Sep 2012
Label: FrostByte Media Inc.
The zillionth-or-so album by Japan's eternal metal institution starts out a mess -- clamorous but not at all songful, with way too much aimless cat-bird vocal screech and wank-attack guitar flash. But with the proggish synth-loop intro and gargoyle grunting of "Keep You Burning," things improve a bit. "Gonna Do It My Way" is dumb stomping fun, with Chuck Berry riffing in the middle and "rock 'til you drop" pledges swiped from early Def Leppard. For the last four songs, the rhythm opens up, swinging alternately like "Welcome to the Jungle," early '90s funk-metal, disco, even harmolodic jazz.
