Phoenix/Nebulin
Distanza (self-released)

By: DJ Kreepy Krawly

This is the debut full-length album from Phoenix/Nebulin a Florida based band. Linda Doval(vocals, guitars, manipulations) Armando Doval(guitars, keyboards, programming) Joe Cozzi*(guitars), Tony Gines*(Keyboards). Distanza contains 12 original tracks and a bonus untitled track.

This album is a bottled-up ball of energy and passion that bursts to life with the opening track "Chameleon". With its powerful female vocals and riveting guitar work, it sets the stage for this album. Towards the middle if the album, Linda and Armando bring the fiery emotion to a simmer as heard in "Nebulin", only to bring it back to a boil with "Torn Inside", a hard-hitting emotion-driven neo-industrial track. Distanza is well crafted album that contains fantastic raw power and emotion that is seldom seen in many new acts, which once were found more in the early 90s.

Recommended for those who enjoy guitar-driven sound of Kovenant, as well as fans of oldtime Switchblade Symphony, and those who are into strong female vocals as heard in Sunshine Blind.

RATING: 4.5 (out of 5)
