Swedish metal band The Murder of My Sweet was formed by drummer and producer Daniel Flores in 2007. The band plays symphonic metal laced around heavy cinematic elements, deriving inspiration from a variety of sources such as epic cinema scores, concepts, the art of storytelling and grandeur often reminiscent of bands like Queen and Electric Light Orchestra. Popularly known to be playing cinematic metal, The Murder of My Sweet received widespread acclamation especially for their 2009 debut album ‘Divanity’, Angelica Rylin’s amazing vocal range and the epic orchestrations invoking vivid ideas. The band then toured Sweden, France and Germany before returning with the next album ‘Bye, Bye Lullaby’ in 2012. Three years later, The Murder of My Sweet are all set to release the new record ‘Beth Out of Hell’ on August 21 under Frontiers Music Srl.
The album is like an odyssey which begins with a beautiful intro and kicks off with “The Awakening”, a heavy, intense track with a memorable chorus and a somewhat progressive approach. One of the best songs on the album, “Always the Fugitive”, blends the essence of hard rock with a modern twist and features yet another nice chorus. The great production is evident in songs like “Still” which is mostly about the brilliant mixing, while “Tide After Tide” is a dark, intense rendition of melodic metal.
