    KROSSFIRE - Shades Of Darkness - 5/10

Krossfire hails from Bulgaria, and has been flying under the radar screen for the past 15 years as mainly a live act, with just 1 full-length studio record to their credit before this 2016 release entitled Shades Of Darkness.  Krossfire’s a hybrid between Progressive-Power Metal and Symphonic Metal, incorporating good doses of atmospheric keyboards.  Musically, the band’s top notch and exciting, but vocally, Dimo Petkov’s neutered tones just don’t mesh well with Krossfire’s soundscape … actually, it’d be hard to imagine his voice blending in well with any type of Metal band … making Shades Of Darkness difficult to recommend.

Songs from this new release will be featured at 6:00/18:00 CET & Midnight/Noon EST on the day indicated. All featured DAILY ALBUM PREMIERES will have a short review posted the day it’s on the show!

The FRIDAY edition of the Daily Album Premiere show contains 3 tracks from each of the Daily Premiere Albums featured during the week. Be sure to tune in here!

Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
