DIARIES OF A HERO
"Diaries of a Hero" (Dust on the Tracks; 2014)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
Diaries of a Hero is British metalcore
with a perfect balance of clean and dirty vocals. It's fast and furious
throughout and is at it's best when it's barely contained - when it's almost on
the verge of chaotic. Sometimes it sounds like the band is just about to spin
out of control and their music is going to explode into a maelstrom of
malevolent notes, but they hold it together, skating the edge with raw emotion
and rage that seems ready to bubble over into madness.
This self-titled album could be the soundtrack for tornado chasing. It's at its most exciting when the music is ferocious and crazy but when it's all over you're relieved that it never reached the point where someone got hurt.
Diaries of Hero: Carlo Del Favero - Lead Vocals/Guitar; John Weeks - Lead Guitar; Matteo Bevilacqua - Bass; Leonard Berisha - Drums

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.
