Holy Shire – “The Legendary Shepherds Of The Forest”

These Holy Shire band come from Italy and give life to the new album “The Legendary Shepherds Of The Forest” trying their hand at metal with clear folk reminiscences and massive symphonic doses.

“The Legendary Shepherds Of The Forest” is a cd that rests its foundations on a series of unconventional sounds (like the flute for example) but which are typical of the genre proposed by the band. Everything takes on greater consistency thanks to the guitar passages highlighted by a clear and powerful rhythm section. The heavy but well-measured symphonic insertions are set perfectly within a full-bodied and beautiful sound.

The listener will be able to decide whether or not this album will embellish the musical panorama in which Holy Shire have entered, the fact is that overall this band suggests the presence of interesting elements to work on for the future, without giving up the grip on the symphonic aspect because it is the dominant factor that makes the positive difference.

“The Legendary Shepherds Of The Forest” remains at good levels through a sound that is anything but predictable and the atmospheric doses present in a less invasive way make listening light and harmonious. Another strong point of the work are the vocals played on deep growling with small screaming in the background.

Ultimately, the band offers good work and given the year in which it was released we expect something fresh soon, and in the meantime, listen to this “The Legendary Shepherds Of The Forest” because it certainly deserves it.
