Active since 2007, the Minneapolis based Symphonic Metal Band Echoterra released their debut album “The Law of One” in 2009 with previous singer Suvi Virtanen. Following her departure the band were joined by ex-Visions of Atlantis singer Melissa Ferlaak for the “In Your Eyes” EP in 2010. That brings us to the present and the first full-length to feature Melissa Ferlaak, “Land of the Midnight Sun”. The pounding “After the Rain” opens the 48-minute album and Melissa Ferlaak once again proves that she is in fine voice and sounding better than ever. The next song, “The Best is Yet to Come” starts off with an almost thrashy pace, before settling into a nice mid-tempo groove the rest of the way. Next we have “Midnight Sun” which the band ups the pace a few notches, but still manages to make it a melodic, forceful tune. “The Ghost Within My Heart” has an angelic kind of opening and then continues in a mid-tempo range. “Unleash the Flood” is one of the heavier ones and sees Melissa really delivering one hell of a performance, she does on the whole album, but this one really stood out for me. Other highlights include: “All the Lies”, “A Different Story”, “Welcome My Friend of Misery” and “From the Gutter to the Throne”. Fans, who loved their previous efforts, will undoubtedly jump for joy over the new Echoterra. With Melissa Ferlaak firmly entrenched as vocalist “Land of the Midnight Sun” succeeds on so many levels.

On their debut 3-song EP, Norway’s Djerv demonstrated their blunt brand of raw Hard Rock, combined with a punk-like energy and enthusiasm. On their self-titled full-length debut “Djerv” returns with a 9-song, 36-minute album that is equivalent to an audio knockout punch. The crushing angst-driven opener “Madman” gets things off to a screaming start, thanks in large part to the attention grabbing vocals courtesy of Agnete Kjølsrud. From there, Djerv just keeps on hitting hard and fast. Among the 9-songs contained here, fans of the band will notice that three of the songs made up Djerv’s debut EP “Headstone”. “Headstone”, “Ladder to the Moon” and “Immortal” is those three songs and they fit in quite nicely with the rest of the material. The songs pack a huge wallop, the riffs are plenty and powerful and each song has an infectious groove running through it. The songs also feature plenty of attitude and their punk-like energy and exuberance remains happily intact as well. Some of the highlights are: “The Bowling Pin”, “Gruesome Twosome” and “Blind the Heat”, in addition to the three EP songs. Not all bands that come from Norway are Black Metal. Sure it seems like that sometimes, but with their self-titled debut, Djerv delivers a hard rocking, energetic tour-de-force.
