LORRAINE CROSS was born in Toulouse in December 2012, in a spirit Heavy, Speed and Power Metal 80s. Play these furious styles, but melodic, is an approach "against the tide" in France-driven Extreme Metal.The group was founded by William (bass) and Katia (manager) that launched in search of musicians to complete the training. DK quickly (guitar) joined the combo, followed by Florent (guitar) and Thomas (drums). The singer station known for its changes of line-up until March 2014, when Tony (vocals) has finally fill the ranks of "Lorraine Crusaders".The group can then start a demo 6 titles.After concerts in 2014 and 2015 the band signed to the label Mighty Music (Denmark) in April 2016.The first album of the combo entitled "Army Of Shadows" will receive an international release August 26, 2016.The name "Lorraine Cross" was chosen in honor of the French Resistance against the Nazi occupation of the war 39-45, the group is willing, even if the lyrics are in English, to refer to its culture and its history - although there have in this no political approach on his part.The logo was created by Stan.W.Decker, reputed to have worked among others with ADX, Vulcan, Blackmore's Night, or Vanden Plas.The group's symbol is nicknamed the "Lorraine Swords", three interlocking blades (Lorraine Sword, Sword Lorraine, Lorraine Dagger) by simulating their entanglement famous heroic and patriotic symbol."Beautiful intended that this cross came from the East entrance into the arms of the House of Anjou, brandished by Lorraine resistance and ultimately engaged in a global crusade for freedom."
The Lorraine Cross was the symbol of the Free French Forces during World War II. It is a powerful symbol for those unwilling to yield to forces of oppression. French power metal act LORRAINE CROSS use the symbol as a metaphor for their particular brand of resolute and uncompromising, leather clad Metal.The band immediately shows what they’re made of on opener “Sharpshooter”. It’s a thrilling rollercoaster ride of a power metal song. Guitars chime in unison before a driving assault of heavy power chords take over. It’s a grandiose anthem for power metal fans everywhere. “Black Military” begins with a military stomp of drums before weaving in some stunning harmonised guitar lines. It’s a genuinely unpredictable song that allows the band to fully demonstrate their strengths, providing a definite highpoint for the band. The pace continues on “One Bullet For Me” with singer Tony giving his voice a real vocal workout. The vocal gymnastics continue on the epic “Die In Your Arms”. It’s an aching ballad that sees the band create a real sense of space with subtle acoustic finger picking and soft keyboard chords. What could have been an overbearing ballad is adeptly handled replete with a spellbinding and soaring guitar solo. The first half of the album is excellent. It is full of arresting ideas and adept playing. The band tries to put their own stamp on the genre and mostly succeed with some elements worthy of power metal kings HAMMERFALL themselves.Sadly, the album loses momentum about half way through. It soon becomes evident that the band don’t have the songs to fill an entire album and the songs start to sound repetitive with ever diminishing returns. Nonetheless, the second half does have its moments. The guitar work is consistently accomplished throughout with the twin guitar attack particularly fluid on “The Slab Was Trapped”. Similarly, “At Close Range” features a technical masterclass in soloing despite the song itself being a little too forgettable. This is the general problem with the album. When they hit on a memorable riff they tend to throw in another six rather than develop the best one. The result is that some songs just feel overstuffed. On occasions, the band would be better off keeping things simple.On the whole, the album suffers due to its length and too much repetition in song structures. They are clearly a passionate band who wears their hearts on their sleeves. Over time the band should be able to channel their enthusiasm and zeal into something truly special. As it is, there is much to enjoy especially for those who are missing the rousing power metal of HAMMERFALL or HELLOWEEN.
