"Be-Low" is definitely not your conventional Lifeforce Records release...the label put a MINDFIELD Mp3 online already a long time ago and I was really stunnished by this song cause it was a beautiful display of modern and very atmospherical Metal Rock music.
Now having heard the whole "Be-Low" album, I am happy that all the songs go into this direction.
This CD has a lot to offer but it all comes down to one main theme which is the appearance of lots of beautiful, almost epic and balladesque melodies without getting pathetic at all and never missing the power and aggression of Metal.
A delightful clear, yet slightly rough voice by Danny Kabus melts perfectly with the musical elements. There can no screaming or shouting whatsoever be found on this record...just clear vocals. A part that I really like very much...
The whole album has a great atmosphere. Besides the mentioned facts, helping a lot of course is the tremendous production and the use of Gothic elements and keyboards now and then.
Although I am quite sure that the average HC kid will not like MINDFIELD, while Metalheads who are in search for atmospherical, emotional and sophisticated Metal will dig "Be-Low" a lot...
