Filharmonix- Hot and High

Friday, February 10, 2012

Jorhat based Filharmonix fashion a hauntingly bright and euphoric dedication to 80’s heavy metal in their debut album- Hot and High. Though it’s not really distinctive or characteristic to the hilt- the eight track independent release is more or less, a decent manifestation of some hard-hitting grooves and large blobs of headshaking guitar wankery, drenched in some serenely executed vocal craft – all of it collectively swirling in a bevy of uplifting choruses. The production however tends to spoil the mix, once in a while, especially the guitar tones that, for me, ruin the spirit of the compositions- in general. On the bright side, despite the fact that Hot and High is Filharmonix‘s debut attempt at a full length- the band seems to showcase very few teething troubles with their sound- the songwriting is decent , compositions perfect and the arrangements solidly executed. It is, nonetheless, an album that could well have been written a decade ago.
