Dyve

Album:

Dust of an Age

Year: 2005
Format: CD
Label: Lucretia
Genre: [Power Metal/Thrash Metal]
Overall Rating: 6.5
Music: 6.5
Production: 7.0


The debut album of the Italian power metal band, Dyve, offers a blend of power & thrash metal with a high dose of energy. However, something just doesn't feel right. Soon I notice that I, for one, am not a fan of Andrea Capuzzi's singing. First of all, his pronunciation is mostly off, which is slightly disturbing. In addition, his voice doesn't always suit the songs too well. However, there are exceptions to the rule as well.

The music on this album isn't too bad. Although it's rather basic blend of power metal and thrash metal, at times there are some refreshing ideas put to use as well. Especially the melodic guitar playing is pleasant to listen to.

The production on this album is rather conventional. It isn't spectacularly good in any aspect, but it isn't really weak either. If one listens to this album with headphones though, the vocals may become tiring in the long run.

It's important to remember that Dust of an Age is still a debut album, and the chances are that Dyve will continue exploring the boundaries of their music. Actually I found some of the music on this album even inspiring and that's quite a promising fact.
