Perfect Insanity - Claudia Ehrhardt - 7 stars

Perfect Insanity

Perfect Insanity
(Frontiers - 2009)

German melodic metallers Jaded Heart present their 3rd album with singer Johan Fahlberg. The album is called Perfect Insanity and kicks off with a short intro and then they head into Love Is A Killer, a fast heavy rocker with a catchy refrain and big backings. Sharp, but melodic riffs of guitarist Peter Östros add a dash aggression. The following Fly Away needs time to develop, but surprised with twists and turns. One of the highlights on Perfect Insanity. The keyboard at the balladesque Tonight reminds me a bit of old Bon Jovi, while the heavy guitar riffs and the vocals give it a different edge... After the rocker Freedom Call they present the ballad One Life, One Death, not bad at all. But for me a bit too bombastic. Another melodic rocker which sticks out it Rising or listen to Hell Just Arrived, both are good choices to check out the new Jaded Heart album. The songs need more then one spin, you won't find a real ear catcher, but the album offers some decent tune. Fans of Jaded Heart won't be disappointed, everybody else, give it a try!
