Black Web - _Black Web_
(Music Online, 2001)
by: Vincent Eldefors (8 out of 10)
Black Web is a new Swedish band whose name you should remember from now on, because they are one of the best newcomers I've heard in a very, very long time. The band isn't really new, since they already started out in 1992, but this is their first album release so far. The music of Black Web is a hybrid between hard rock and metal, but what stands out the most is the remarkably strong vocal work, which reminds me a little of Lemmy Kilmister at his best. Don't think Motley Crue or something like that now, though, because this album is a lot heavier than they ever were and it rocks like very few albums do. The slower tunes don't always maintain the standard of the rest of the album, but all in all this record is definitely worth buying if you are into any kind of heavy music. Perhaps the vocals and music don't work perfectly well together in every single track either, but that is luckily only a minor flaw. Fans of Motorhead will probably love this album, although I personally think Black Web has a much more promising sound than Lemmy and the boys ever had. Sweden still has a lot to offer to the realm of hard music and I am very glad that there are still people who believe in this kind of music, because the mainstream is becoming worse and worse these days. The first half of the album is amazing and you just have to listen to the title track "Black Web", which is one of the most powerful tunes I've ever heard. Black Web is not an extreme band, but they are still great and I think they will appeal to you whether you are a fan of metal or hard rock. Let's just hope that they can continue in the same vein in the future. Check out this band and your life will never be the same again...
