German numetallers 4Lyn´s previous album "Compadres" was a disappointment, the lack of great melodies made the album almost unbearable to listen to. It´s so important to fill this genre with nuances to make it enjoyable or else all the riffs will sink into the swamp of heaviness. But I am pleased to say the band is back with new life and reloaded batteries on their new album "Hello", they line up strong melodies just as much as there are stars in the sky. This is how I like to hear numetal in 2008, a cool unique sound like a mix of KoRn, Saigon Kick and the British rock of Suede. "Nostalgia" is one of their strongest songs so far and the new single "Hello" gets stuck in the head like superglue. "World´s gone crazy" and "The jumpoff" would make Jonathan Davies of KoRn proud while "Shadow valley" is a cool example of Saigon Kick meeting Suede in a crazy mix. Impressive!
