Phase Three is the third album from German Melodic Rock band DeVicious. This is the first record to feature new lead vocalist Antonio Calanna along with current members Radivoj Petrovic, guitar, Alex Frey, bass, Denis Kunz, keyboard, and Lars Nippa, drums.

Phase Three is a bit heavier than 2019’s Reflections. Kicking off with the hard-driving “Firefly”, it still features the signature lush vocal harmonies and big hook chorus, but Calanna’s vocals are more aggressive than his predecessor. Up next is “Mysterious”, which starts off with a syncopated intro with a bit of a Disturbed feel, before settling into another hard rocker. “Pouring Rain” has a bit groovier tempo. “Walk Through Fire” shifts gears again, with a bit slower groove, giving the song a dramatic feel.

The bottom line, Phase Three is an excellent record. Every track features an excellent arrangement and excellent production value. Every song features DeVicious trademark hooks, thick vocal choruses, and great performances across the board. There are no filler tracks. Each song has something to offer, and there are a variety of flavors within the Melodic Rock genre. Fans of Melodic Rock, Hard Rock, AOR, and fans od DeVicious will definitely want to give Phase Three a listen.

    Stevie was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio. He is currently the lead guitarist for Melodic Rock band Red Reign, based in Richmond, Virginia, USA. Red Reign toured with Tesla in 2017, and shared the stage with Dokken, FireHouse, Lita Ford, Kix, Quiet Riot, and others at various dates around the US in 2018. Stevie heard his first KISS record at the age of 6 and was immediately hooked on Rock and Roll guitar. Over the course of years his tastes evolved, graduating from KISS to Ozzy and Van Halen; and then into Hair Metal. Over time, harder and faster music drew him. Bands like Metallica, Pantera, and Anthrax led the way, and Killswitch Engage took him over the top. Stevie has a deep passion for the guitar, not only playing them, but building them as well.
