The fact that The Osiris Club have produced horror soundtracks on an avant-garde metal basis in their past is still noticeable in places on their new album "Blazing World". The lyrics touch on occult themes. The guitars can get pretty heavy. And finally, weird ghost sounds create some goose bumps. But the fact that these very sounds only look like a winking homage to horror B movies is due to the London quartet's radical change of course. Alternative Rock is on, with Krautrock hints ("That's Not Like You"), spacy sounds ("Mystery Sells" or "The Bell's"), various aggressive guitar riffs ("Solid Glass", "Miles And Miles Away"), which quote both the postpunk and the grunge, and with a shimmering violin solo in the title track as a surprise. In "Undoing Wrong" it can even be a little more lively and open. If the Osiris clubbers succeed in creating some really gripping vocal melodies in the future, then a really strong album could be the result.
