Okay, so that’s it!? I was not actually convinced! Why!? The music itself is good, but I do believe that they could do something MORE EPIC but they didn’t. The vocals were bland, even Tarja can barely be heard on the chorus. 😦 I was a bit off to this release, but the songs from the other EP where this will be released, were ALL GOOD! Surprisingly!?
Some people even have a say on it, here’s a comment of a fan:
“Paradise is okay – love the video and the duet with Tarja is cool, but I’m actually more excited about these demos. There’s a real sense of you going back to your roots, but using all the experience and knowledge you’ve gained over the years. The music is interesting and edgy, but with a more polished sound than your earliest records. Silver Moonlight is outstanding! Best song on the EP! Please do not tweak it too much because it really doesn’t need it. Let Us Burn is also really good. Dog Days could do with a bit more work IMO; but is still very promising. Thanks for releasing this EP and giving a taste of the album to come. Looking forward to it!”
