Darkness And Light (CD, Album, Enh). 0681-184, SPV - CD 64692. Darkness And Light (CD, Album). SBCD(L)-1044, SBCDL-1044.
They released their debut album Darkness And Light, and this is quite a strong record, featuring pompous and majestic songs. A very interesting album, actually. Not very original, but still it’s a nice piece of work. The intro could easily remind you of German Power Metalers Blind Guardian. It’s very medieval based and sounds pretty cool. The follow up track is Holy Fire. It starts out very intense and energetic; a lot of double bass drums and pounding guitars. On top of all of this there’s a weird keyboard lick. Eminence is the hit song from this record, and Scelerata sounds very Edguy-inspired, apart from the keyboards. Vocalist Carl Casagrande does a fine job overall on this record, and, of course, this song is no exception. Next song, The Spell Of Time, starts out very mysterious with harpsichords mixed in a very weird sound.
Scelerata is a five-man Metal band from Brazil, and the 10-song Darkness And Light album is their debut disc. Scelerata’s line-up on this CD consists of Carl Casagrande, vocals; Magnus Wichmann and Bruno Sandri, guitars; Gustavo Strapazon, bass; and Francis Cassol, drums. Guest singers Eduardo Falaschi (ex-Angra), Thiago Bianchi (Shaman), and accordion hero Renato Borguetti cameo on some of the songs here, with the disc coming in at a little over 47 minutes of total playing time. No Heavy Metal album is complete without one of these, after al. ith the filler out of the way, Scelerata gets down to business with the first actual song: Holy Fire, which blazes a trail for the rest of the album to follow. Toss in a catchy sing-a-long chorus and a shredding solo, and the album is off to a good start.

How do you rate this product? 1 star.
This bands sound is familiar and yet has their own thing, blending speed prog metal ala ANGRA and SONATA ARCTICA with some more Hard rock influences of Riffy metal, then ad in a vocal with the tonal attitude of Bruce Dickinson. Genre: Metal/Punk: Speed Metal. We'll ship when it's back in stock.
