|A PERFECT DAY - ST (2012) |
The concept of A PERFECT DAY came about when Andrea Cantarelli - guitarist and co-founding member of the Italian metal band Labyrinth - presented the new songs and riffs he was working on to his bandmate Roberto Tiranti.
The musical direction was evidently different from what they have been developing on Labyrinth’s recent releases, more in line with Hard Rock rather than traditional metal.
So "A Perfect Day" self titled debut album will be released by Frontiers Records in a few days.
A Perfect Day became a trio with the addition of Alessandro Bissa (as well in Labyrinth, Vision Divine) on drums.
'Power trio' can be an easily overused term to describe a band, however, it works for A Perfect Day when used to define the strength of the musicianship and songwriting. Both are at a premium here.
Notable are the assertive guitar riffs and leads, the passionate and clear vocal arrangements and the huge melodies that steer every song.
APD's sound works from a classic melodious Hard Rock base (think Eighties) but adds modern overtones to the music.
The album starts with the nuancing uptempo hard rock of the title track, followed by the slow, controlled and balanced "Now and Forever" with plenty of time for the sensitive guitar solos without stress. It's one of the best songs on the disc.
There's some real charging rockers here like "Waiting on the Edge" or "Long Road to Ruin" with its rougher tone in the front and where the energy is more powerful thanks to the distinctive drums which clearly raises the guitar and singing onward and upward.
Semi ballad "Alone and Free (Rock Blind)" has a clearer progressive ambience and is one of the top songs on the album. In "Silent Cry" the tempo is slower again and the vocals are more reserved and careful, but with a strong chorus and stylish guitar play makes the song really cozy somehow.
"Warm Embrace" is an adult melodic track with a nice feeling adorned by clean guitars and deep rhythm section, which raises the tempo in the middle for good effect. Great One.
Last song "We Only Say Goodbye" starts with a nice a capella vocal arrangement (really well done) and then turn into a balanced track with a melodic rock attitude. Big vocals and stunning guitars to end the CD in very good form.
A Perfect Day is not the typical product you expect from Frontiers, but kudos to them for discover us this very good band.
This CD offers fifty minutes of intelligent hard rock entertainment, really well crafted and not exempt of originality.
Mr. Tiranti's voice is very harmonic to listen to and he handles the high pitch vocals just as amazing as in the deeper tones. When a rock band is a trident, it requires hard work from all three members. In many trios sometimes I hear some gaps in the rock rumble, but A Perfect Day has a clever producer, who has made a fantastic work and the sound is strong, tight, clear and flawless.
