Review

With the surprise effect being gone, a band has to deliver equally strong songs or even better to maintain interesting for the listener. In the case with Red and their orchestral and bombastic metal, we already know their sound from the previous 2 albums which both were stunning. So after 3 spins of the new album "Until we have faces", I can only come to the conclusion that this band wants to be super safe and deliver the same album over and over again except this time the songs do not match either "End of silence" (2006) nor "Innocence and instinct" (2009).
Sure the opening is impressive with "Feed the machine" and "Faceless" but the album kinda loses it´s enormous power from the first two tracks on the remaining 9 tracks. This feels like a huge Hollywod movie, a big budget, lots of special effects but the story is thin and you know the hero will get the girl in the end. 4 stars for the production but 2 stars for the songs, I sure do hope Red dare to try something new on the next album or else I will drop this band.

Tracklisting 1. Feed The Machine
2. Faceless
3. Lie To Me (Denial)
4. Let It Burn
5. Buried Beneath
6. Not Alone
7. Watch You Crawl
8. The Outside
9. Who We Are
10. Best Is Yet To Come
11. Hymn For The Missing
