𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Clean-sharp melodic/progressive distortion riffs, with sharp complex/technically and harmonization & rhythmic chords & solos, deep bass riffs

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Deep growling vocals that echos with clean/melodic vocals & other styles/tones

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Catchy - fresh/intricate drum patterns and beats – consists of Multifaceted tempos and beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: When I did a review on the Italian act Ibridoma, the intro did something different, totally missed off any fancy and epic opening just straight in the play mode, now I give you Svanzica, that's done the same trick.


Once hitting the play button, as I said forget any fancy and epic opening on Red Reflection, this goes straight into some growling and cool riffing at the start, that gets the blood pumping, within the ten-tracks which are impressive from beginning to the end, I just find it hard to believe that's Svanzica classified as progressive metal/rock


Red Reflection without any rules and not sticking to one method of playing style, so just like a flick of the coin 'Red Reflection' plays progressive metal/rock that echos with aggressive, energetic, brutal/soft, clean/melodic sections, with a mixture of various compositions of individually unique creative and intelligent catchy complex riffing and melodies, dynamic drumming, heavy bass riffs, extraordinary tempo and mood changes, smart and, excellent craftmanship and musicianship, what provides Red Reflection that extra memorable sensation are the random moments of switching between singing styles/tone, clean passages, just seems to pull you in the music, and not forgetting the last track 'Jupiter' what a song, it's just the mood of the song, appears to finishes the album off nicely and smoothly


Red Reflection is very entertaining music of over forty-minutes of playtime that provides the listener with a delighted of enjoyable, memorial playtime of progressive metal/rock with an alternative approach (total enjoyed the band's unique music, wow-factor - a sit back, drift off into a deep space sleep)

*thoroughly enjoyment from start to end*

*full of energy* *worth the playtime and listen*

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: Not too sure about the artwork, eye-catching, while taking a look at some of the songs, I'm assuming the artwork is showing parts of the universe with a concept story about a space voyage

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The whole album and it playing style and sounds, the last track & the vocal arrangements
