MSTRPLN” is the third album from German rockers SACRED GROOVE, their first in six years. The band makes justice to their name; this is groovy melodic metal / hard rock. A female fronted melodic metal in fact, and a very good one.
Sacred Groove was founded in the ’90s, musically oriented towards the hard rock sound of the late ’80s. In 2006 the original members started a new beginning for the band and decided to continue their career with female vocals and a slightly more metal-heavy note.
Very well composed, arranged, and performed, ”MSTRPLN” also sports a crisp, pretty bombastic production which takes the product above the bar for an indie release…
