Reflections is the second release from German Hard Rock/Melodic Rock band DeVicious. Formed in 2016 in Karlsruhe, Germany DeVicious feature Serbian vocalist Zoran Sandorov (Mr. Sanders), bassist/songwriter/producer Alex Frey, guitarist Radivoj Petrovic, keyboardist Dennis Kunz, and drummer Lars Nippa. Despite the producer being a band member, Reflections is a really good sounding record. There are a few instances in which an outside producer still could have been advantageous. “Saturday Night”, for example, starts out very promising, but kind of goes nowhere in the chorus. Most of the record is very well done, however, with excellent hooks, production, and performances. “We’re Dying” is one of the strongest tracks, with some very healtfelt lyrics and stellar performances. Sandorov’s voice is powerful and calls to mind Kip Winger and Johnny Gioeli. The songs are very radio friendly and DeVicious fits firmly in the Melodic Rock/Hard Rock genre. “Hungarian Girl” and “Never Let You Go”, along with “Feel The Heat” have an anthemic quality really hit the sweet spot. Overall, Reflections is a very solid release, well worth a listen for any Melodic Rock/Hard Rock fan.
