𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Devil's Bargain is a band, that brings back the classic heavy metal/hard rock days to the listener


Hailing from Belgium, bringing us their debut full-length release of a runtime of over thirty-six minutes of just seven songs, This a good deliverance of pure adrenaline of a playing style of classic heavy metal & hard rock style; without any dull moments, the release is full of life, while the rest of the bands playing style is remarkable outstanding


Each track has deliverance of various compositions of individually unique and creativity of guitar work, giving us most excellent of catchy/smart melodic riffs & solos. In contrast, the rest of the music and drum work, gives out this dynamic and adrenaline mood & structure and extra support to the guitar, as I found the guitar work is driving force behind the band's music, not forgetting vocals which adds the theatrical part to the music


What sets the emotional mood of each song is the concept behind of the album was written as a compilation of visions, about the different version of reality (externally & internally), reflecting various aspects of the human condition, relations with one another, if the world did come to an end

*full of energy*

*entertaining* *energetic & hard-driven music*
