Cor : The new Diablo Blvd actually proceeds the logical path after the well received former album. Personally I couldn’t be blown away by that album, but it wasn’t experienced as that bad also. Once more we have some well performed melodic, almost melancholic metal wrapped in a bombastic production. Also the Danzig influences are widely available again and I must say, I have the feeling they gave much attention to the arrangements. Everything kind of fits very neatly; the variation is very well balanced and most stuff will be experienced as pretty catchy by many listeners. On the other hand this is probably the reason this might appear a bit too (forced) accessible with a loss of honesty, something which can be enlarged by the theatrical character of the music. This will probably never become my thing, but when you were into their previous material, you can blindly go for this one.
