Album Review: ‘Dance with Devils’ by Deathless Legacy

Italian horror heavy metal band Deathless Legacy released their new album ‘Dance with Devils‘ on January 27 2017. The band uses a lot of haunting themes both audio and visually. Interesting concept but a lot band’s do it. How does this band stand out from the rest?

This album is really, really fun. I haven’t heard an album that kept me entertained like this in a long time. ‘Dance with Devils‘ feels like a haunted carnival ride. Halloween like lyricism throughout the entirety of the record but there’s so much more going on here. Right from the opening instrumental only track we are greeted with the idea of, I hate to sound redundant but, Halloween. There’s crazy set pieces on this record whether it’s straight up metal or if it’s orchestral or if it’s just haunting as all hell. This is a really cool record. A few highlights on this record are “Witches Brew“, “Lucifer” and “Voivode“. I had a hard time choosing my favorite between “Lucifer” and “Voivode“. “Lucifer” has organs! What the hell! How do they make organs fit in a metal song. I guess organ goes hand in hand with the themes this band implies. “Voivode” is probably the most well rounded track on this record. It’s got the band’s haunting weird stuff with more of a modern metal twist. More aggressive vocals and more metal instrumentals with some more straight forward “normal” sounding guitar work. It still has that weird awesomeness the rest of the record has as well.  This album is so interesting. Another really odd but cool track is “Curse of the Waltz“.

I give this album an 7.8 out of 10.  It’s the perfect album to pick up once and while and throw it on and remember how good it is. I could easily recommend this band to people.
