Derdian - Limbo Review

back to reviews

Artist: Derdian

Album: Limbo

Released: 2013

A mixture of styles and genres: Melodic Speed Power Metal


Derdian is not new to the world of music - 10 years of life, 4 full-length albums, two of which I have at this point already. So, 4th album Limbo, released in 2013. What is it to us?
It's no secret that the music of both early and the last albums is an adherence to the ideas of Rhapsody (of Fire). It is fast and melodic Italian Speed&Power with keyboard-guitar arpeggios, powerful vocals and catchy melodies.
Everything seems to be, as usual... So what is the true value of this album? If Rhapsody has already shown all its power in the early albums, and then released only the repetition of the traversed, and Rhapsody of Fire could have exploited only its rolled idea, Derdian found its loophole, how to develop a good idea, and not just its unprincipled use of Rhapsody by most bands.
First. If the band does not have a good guitarist, keyboardist, vocalist, this group will never be able to work in the above style. It means that Derdian are very good, skillful musicians.
Second. Melody. The group must have a talent for writing catchy melodies, and not the nonsense level or pop "and that's what I've heard here or over there somewhere" and the level of rapturous tremor in his hands, when the melody sounds for the first time. Derdian possesses it.
Third. Arrangements. It is easier because it is often more laborious technical work than creative insights. The group has wonderful arrangements, that only enhances the already high quality of work.
In conclusion, if you need something very good and proven, familiar but unhacked, Derdian with their latest album Limbo - the best choice.
