Back 1 year after their debut, Greek heavy / power metal act Wardrum, return with their brand new opus “Desolation” via Steel Gallery Records on 25th April 2012.Taking a step onwards from their debut ‘Spadework’, Wardrum have delivered an even more powerful sound that still retains the melodies and technicality of its critically acclaimed predecessor. ‘Desolation’ also marks the first album recorded with new singer, Yannis Papadopoulos (Until Rain, Crosswind) who also lives in Thessaloniki and have brought stability to the band’s working timetable, not to mention bringing a new dimension to the lyricism heard on the new album.The works for this album started right after “Spadework” was released. Preproduction took place in October 2011, final adjustments were made and full recording took place November 2011/February 2012. Through “Desolation” the band delivers for once more strong songs, catchy choruses, melodic guitar solos, technical rhythm section, highly establishing the band’s skills and songwriting abilities. The album was produced again by Kostas Scandalis and released by Steel Gallery Records, while the Cover artwork is a work of Piotr Szafraniec especially for Wardrum.
OK! This came out of nowhere. It was the first album I listened to from this terrific power / heavy band and it absolutely blew me off. Where have these guys been hiding all this time? How often can someone listen to an album containing 14 songs without even one filler?Giannis Papadopoulos is, for sure, one of the best, if not the best, metal singers of his time. His powerful voice can reach the sky without losing a single note. He offers passionate renditions, expressing successfully the feeling of the lyrics, colours uniquely the songs and takes them to another level. I feel , with total sense of what I'm writing, is that he is Rob Halford of his generation. Then, there is guitarist Kosta Vreto. Enormous riffs and incredible leads, that make you want to do air-guitaring, even in your sleep. It is even more exciting that he plays without a pick. He uses only his fingers. At last, there is the skillful rhythm section of Kostas Scandalis (bass) and Stergios Kourou (drums). Especially Kourou, thanks to his unparalleled technique, offers marvelous drumming that serves the songs, without showing off, though he could have done so easily.Kourou is also responsible for most of the songwriting, along with Vreto. They follow a certain pattern in most songs,which is verse-(pre-chorus)-chorus-verse-chorus-solo-chorus. Durations do not go over 5 minutes with the exception of the metal hymn "Lady Jane Grey". Catchy (and I mean this as an advantage) riffing and sing-along choruses are Wardrum's trademarks. Lyrics, written exclusively by Kourou, coming from his own personal experience I assume, refer, mostly, to relationships that have ended and how someone must fight to fulfill his / her dreams against all difficulties, despite the obstacles that stand in the way. Scandalis, apart from being a great bass player, has done excellent work in producing, mixing and mastering the album. He has managed to bring out all the advantages of his bandmates - and there are plenty of them. All the organs are heard loud and clear, as well as the wonderful voice of Papadopoulos.In conclusion , Wardrum created a heavy metal album that does not stop to surprise, even when you reach the last song, and leaves you with a great silly smile on your face. If I have to distinguish some songs, I would have to say "Lady Jane Grey", "After Forever" ,"Travel Far Away", "The Messenger", "Red Ruby Heart", "Broken" , "Vengeance" and "Rebirth", but still I feel I'm being unfair. This is a true masterpiece, a jewel for every music collection.
