Avatarium – Hurricanes And Halos Review

Avatarium - Hurricanes And HalosA new Avatarium album? Well this is rather nice. Hurricanes And Halos is a mesmerising and hypnotic piece that you’ll be remembering for all the right reasons.

Following on from where they left off with their last full-length piece The Girl With The Raven Mask, the band’s third full-length album is another gripping and intriguing work that is a rather immersive listen. Jennie-Ann’s vocals are once again colourful and mesmerising, painting the most beautiful picture to accompany the psychedelic music underneath. By now, Avatarium know what works for them and what doesn’t, and the flow from one track to the next is very natural as a result.

There’s no ‘big hitters’ on this album like the last two, with no tracks that really stand head-and-shoulders above the others, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing because Hurricanes And Halos doesn’t feature any weak songs either – and that counts for a lot more. Each track is great in its own right, slotting into the bigger picture well, and it subsequently makes for excellent listening.

Avatarium have done it again with Hurricanes And Halos, and have made another top-notch album. Make sure you don’t miss this one.
