So then, the new album, Black Roses by The Rasmus was released yesterday in Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Norway and Denmark. Tomorrow it is released in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and The Netherlands. The International release date is the 29th, likewise, for Japan and Canada. Anyway, the whole album has already leaked in its entirety. So has anyone heard the album yet and if so, what do you think overall? I have not given in to temptation. I am going to wait for the next 4 days as I wish to be surprised. I have heard Livin' In A World Without You and You Got It Wrong and both are very solid, enjoyable tracks overall. So I am really looking forward to receiving my Black Roses album. The band have decided to make this album reminiscents of their breakthrough album, Dead Letters but with some heavier tracks from Hide From The Sun and adding parts of their old style from their 4th album, Into. They've also done songs that could possibly resemble or be related to such bands as Depeche Mode or even Muse (stated by people who already have the album). The album is described as very dark, emotional with a sound of rock, pop and electro all rolled into one. And the catchier side of The Rasmus is back, which I am ecastic about as Hide From The Sun only had a few real standout, catchy tracks. From what I read, if you like pop or dance-esque songs, listen to Your Forgiveness and Dangerous Kind (this has been described like In The Shadows). And if you want to hear a heavier side, listen to The Fight. But I'm going by what I observed over on the forums from people who have heard the album in full. Anyway, feedback is welcome with open arms. Cheers.
