Ad Infinitum - Chapter I: Monarchy

Well, Ad Infinitum is a four piece, Swiss, female fronted symphonic metal band debuting on Napalm. They sound like more recent Delain, with the odd aspiration to sound like Within Temptation, but far more pedestrian and cliché melodies, chord progressions you’ve heard before and without being bad, they’re far from being original or exceptional at what they do. Obligatory harsh male vocals, in certain places, sound at best unconvincing and don’t add anything.

Metalite - Biomechanicals

Sometimes I get varying amounts flak from friends for being overly critical or even sometimes even damn mean, when I listen to something, they thing is good, but I don’t necessarily agree with. It obviously has to do with taste and personal preferences, but also the accumulated amount of time I’ve been following the genre and the amount of bands I encounter. Sometimes I do not like their bias, when they’re somehow involved in productions. It’s good to not bullshit people, especially your friends.
