To The Rats And Wolves: Neverland
German electro-metallers over-lubricate their debut album
The latest signing to Nuclear Blast’s Arising Empire imprint is the dreadfully-named To The Rats And Wolves, and their clunky moniker isn’t their only problem.
Neverland has moments of potential, but is let down by overproduction, a reliance on synths and questionable lyrics. Opener Suburban Romance builds up from a reverbed riff to a screamed verse underpinned with the kind of electro-metal that might soundtrack an Xbox shoot-’em-up.
