The Finns have released several albums during the past years and enjoyed a huge live success, thanks to the explosive rhythms that their music enhances. As a band that perfectly moulds itself in the interpretation of popular cover-versions, TO/DIE/FOR returns with a studio album; it seems more dynamic than the previous ones, but it follows the same Gothic Rock approach, with a modest vocal (as there would be a punishment into singing), energetic guitars and bombastic keyboard, finally: a relaxing atmosphere, just meretricious consumism. It's not my type of sound, especially that the Dark dimension is absent. Therefore, the latest album doesn't bring any novelty, it is just a more vivid HIM or a less symphonic NIGHTWISH, there are only several minutes of bombastic and commercial Rock!
