English:

After the ‘Prisoners Of Steel’ debut (2008) and its follow up ‘MechanicHell’ (2009), there was a lot of work on the live front and after that, problems with the line-up caused delay, but finally the third Burning Black is ready.

After the intro we find in ‘Mercenary Of War’ heavy power with slight prog accent and get acquainted with some heavy to clear, flashing riffing. In the title track, Dan shows how his dexterity to use his voice in a diversity of registers, but cannot hide his accent. The catchy ‘Flag Of Rock’, as bonus video on the album, follows, but is a somewhat misplaced rocker lost between the power metal load. A bit further, we get, after a quiet instrumental piece, ‘Visionary’ where they show how to handle a long song. The good impression from the beginning of the album is however lessened. ‘Love Me’ is catchy, but rather straightforward, while ‘Soulless Stone’ seems a winner, voice and guitar being able to express themselves fully, but ‘Far Away, with some Spanish guitar and nice drum patterns, does it even better. After that, the closing ‘Metal Jacket’, even with its catchy hook, is a bit disappointing.

Unsettled album with a few heavy highlights, but also lesser songs.


Nederlands:

Na het debuut ‘Prisoners Of Steel’ (2008) en de opvolger ‘MechanicHell’ (2009) werd er uitgebreid getoerd en daarna zorgden problemen in de bezetting voor vertraging, maar nu is de derde Burning Black klaar.

Na de intro belanden we in ‘Mercenary Of War’: heavy power met licht prog accenten waarin we kennismaken met heavy tot heldere, flitsende riffs. In het titelnummer weet Dan zijn stem behendig in diverse registers te gebruiken, maar kan helaas zijn accent niet verbergen. Het catchy ‘Flag Of Rock’, dat als bonus video op het album staat, volgt, maar is eigenlijk een misplaatste rocker tussen de power metal. Wat verder krijgen we, na een rustig instrumentaal stukje, ‘Visionary’ waarin ze tonen ook langere nummers aan te kunnen. De gunstige indruk van het begin van de schijf is echter geminderd. ‘Love Me’ is catchy, maar nogal eenvoudig, terwijl ‘Soulless Stone’ eerder een winnend lot lijkt, waarin stem en gitaar voluit gaan, maar ‘Far Away, met wat Spaanse gitaar en fijn drumpatroon, legt de lat nog wat hoger. Daarna is afsluiter ‘Metal Jacket’, hoewel met catchy hook, wat teleurstellend.

Wisselvallige schijf met enkele stevige hoogtepunten en helaas ook mindere momenten.
