Element Of Sex opens with Fire True, an industrial metal sound. The guitars growl with intensity before Herma’s vocals add a euro pop twist. The vocals evoke a lacuna coil vibe before a great solo. Megalomaniacal ups the intensity with fast drums, guitars and Herma’s passion. A perfect choice for a single and evidence why Sick N’ Beautiful should represent Italy at Eurovision.
The band slows things down with All Wanna go to Heaven, a brilliantly constructed hard rock banger. The drums are fantastic while the harmonies are just stunning. Hellawake, Herma channel her inner Kate Bush on this electronic-infused metal. The music takes you on a Journey and a definite stand-out.
Slam! Brings back the dirty, gritty hard rock missing in modern hard rock. Rev C2 and Lobo outdo themselves on guitars. HexXx (Element of Sex) encapsulates the essence of Sick N’ Beautiful. The guitars are great, vocals amazing and the lyrics fun. Cryptid begins strongly with brilliant industrial sounding drums. The drums are the strongest element of the track. They’re fast, heavy, and bring the thunder. The solo is unexpected but executed perfectly.
Sick N’ Beautiful state one of their influences as Lady Gaga and here really shows. New Witch 666 [Satan in Space Mix] has a wonderful pop underlayer as they continue to deliver. The guitar solo is one of the best on the overall, album.
Every album needs a ballad to showcase their other side. Heart December does that in spades, taking Herma’s vocals to new enchanting heights. C*mmunion the electronic-infused hard rock hit concludes an impressive album.
Element Of Sex is an outstanding album with huge promise and potential going forward. Every track is a triumph showcasing a variety of sounds and styling.
