Lullacry is a Finnish band that plays quite straight forward groovy rock metal or heavy rock since this isn’t actually that metal. Or groovy rock meets mellow heavy metal. Something like that. This is this their third full length release and first with their new singer Tanja who replaced their former singer Tanya a little while ago. There’s no drastic difference in the singers’ voices. Tanja’s voice is maybe a little warmer and softer than Tanya’s was, but still rocking. The general atmosphere on the album is both uplifting and a little melancholic. The guitar work on this album is quite impressive. There are some memorable semi-heavy riffs that create a nice contrast with the mellower parts. The soundworld on this album is not too thick for this kind of groovy rock metal. On the contrary, it is very enjoyable to listen to. So, the production is near flawless and it was done by Mikko Karmila and the Lullacry main man Sami Vauhkonen at Finnvox studios. Lullacry are hardly offering us anything groundbreakingly new and refreshing, but when you know how to do your thing the way it is supposed to be done, there really isn’t that much to complain about. I see no reason why Lullacry wouldn’t be quite a famous band in the not too distant future. If there are more albums like this coming from their direction who knows what the limit might be. Especially songs like "Don’t Touch The Flame", the beautiful "Unchain" and "Better Days" are bound to stick in your head and with the rest of the album being at least solid this album is a very nice display of Lullacry’s songwriting abilities. Although there’s still room for improvement, "Crucify My Heart" is a surprisingly good album.
