Fastlane Flower
July 2012
Released: 2011, Nordic Records
Rating: 1.5/5
Reviewer: UK Team

These female fronted Norwegian rocky/gothic metallers claim to be Death rock with a taste of honey.....not sure they are aware of the other use of this term because they are far from the types to be seen sporting deathhawks...

I like the vocalists strongly accented vocals and it reminds me a little of Edenbridge. Overall, the theatrical style is too cheesy and there is nothing different which makes this album stand out. "Secret Archive" is an interesting song due to the vocal style and difference in style to the rest of the album. "Wisteria Lane Concept" is a rather experimental song and in parts (rather bizarrely) reminds me of 90’s indie kids Bis!

Despite these features it is an uncomfortable listen and not recommended. Fastlane Flower bring nothing to an already saturated genre. You’ve heard this before, and you’ve heard it done better, so don’t bother!
