(Album Review) “Look Into The Black Mirror” by Black Mirrors

Out of Belgium comes a band that is prepared to take the world by storm, and that band is Black Mirrors.  Leading the charge is esteemed vocalist Marcella Di Troia with her wailing vocals and her supercharged personality, Black Mirrors has taken the world by storm with their release “Look Into The Black Mirror” via Napalm Records.

The album is gritty, grimy, and full of soul with ranges from classic rock, boogie-woogie feelings, with elements of psychedelic and stoner rock.  The vocals that Marcella are certainly evident in the track “Funky Queen”, as she lets out a wail as she bellows in the chorus.  That is not all that Black Mirrors possess.

The bass is thick as molasses and groovy as a Soul Train line dance in the song “Lay My Burden Down”.  There is a sass and a swagger throughout the track that reminds the listener that Black Mirrors are here to stay.  The guitars sound very Tony Iommi(Black Sabbath) like with that menacing rhythm section in “Inner Reality”, it sounds like it’s haunting.  The way that Black Mirrors build up the song into a resounding climax throughout the song is something to behold.

Madness To Creation is enthralled with the arrangements, Marcella’s voice, and how each song tells an incredible story.  The world will get to know Black Mirrors before long as Madness To Creation rates this album a 9 out of 10 stars.  Here is the track listing below.

  1.  Shoes For Booze
  2.  Funky Queen
  3.  Lay My Burden Down
