Black Star Furies “Rest Of The City”

Looking at the name and origin (Italy), I first thought that BLACK STAR FURIES were just one more of those 80s hair metal revival bands, but I was wrong. These 3 guys actually plays modern hard rock with heavy guitars and fine vocal melodies (“Alien”, “Shiver”, “Rest Of The City”…) that are sometimes getting close to a band like AFI.
Despite the fact that there are too many ballads to my tastes on the album, it is quite easy to listen to, and you quickly find yourself getting hooked to songs like “Back In The Days”, “She Goes” or “Cigarette”.
BLACK STAR FURIES released an EP (“96th Street”) and a single in these last 5 years, but they show quite an impressive maturity on this first album./Laurent C.
