SHAKRA
Everest

 

 

I knew practically nothing about Shakra when I put this disc on, but I was immediately enthralled. Crisp riffs, huge melodic choruses, great songs. This might just be a late contender for the very best melodic metal album of 2009!

 

Every song on this album is so catchy you’ll be singing along by the first chorus – and for days after – they’re all winners, yet luscious ballad ‘Hopeless’ closes proceedings on an epic note.

 

For the record, Shakra are Swiss, "Everest" is their fourth album, and it went to #4 on the Swiss album charts in the week after it's release, and you really should buy it now!
