Now is the time for some harder stuff from Italy. 5 Star Grave are six piece band from Cuneo featuring ex members of Ground Zero, Disarmonia Mundi and Frostbane. Formed in 2008., this is their third full length album. The album features 10 tracks of melodic modern metal with horror lyrics, so they are reffered to as horror metal. The music is energetic mixture of melodic death metal, trash metal and some punk hardcore influences. The vocals are more shouted than sung but it fits kinda nicely in the whole picture. The song titles are tongue in cheek cheesy but funny horror clichees like “Eat You Alive”, “The Ballad Of The Vampire”(my personal favourite), “Alice”, “He Never Died” to name only a few great songs. This is a really fine record for all the fiends out there who love metal and love horror!
