"King of Stars - Bearer of Dark" (Deathgasm; 2005)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Musical styles and musical tastes are as varied as fingerprints. One man's screaming is another man's singing and I hate to condemn vocal styles.
But, what the hell, I am a music critic and that's what we do.
Azure's "King of Stars - Bearer of Dark" is very tight and well performed, full of emotion and technical ability -- just what you're looking for in a heavy metal band. The vocals, however, are ... well, distressed. Even on the slower ballad-like tunes, I found the vocals to be harsh and forced.
Azure is a hugely talented band and it shows on each and every track of "King of Stars - Bearer of Dark." Me, I just could not get past the screeching vocals.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
