Review: Evenline - Dear Morpheus Deluxe Edition


Evenline, formed in 2009, consists of Aarno Gueziec, Fabrice Tedaldi, Thomas Jaegle and Olivier Stefanelli. The style they play is some alternative metal with their influences in Alter Bridge, Papa Roach, Staind, Seether and Sevendust. In 2010 they released their first EP The Coming Life and in 2014 it was time for their first full-length Dear Morpheus. On January 16th this year, they released an deluxe edition of Dear Morpheus, containing the original album as well as 5 acoustic versions of tracks from Dear Morpheus. Maybe, when you consider yourself a metalhead and you hear the term alternative metal you won't try to listen to it. But wait, you have to try this. Maybe it really isn't your thing, but at least you've tried.

As said Dear Morpheus Deluxe Edition contains the original album too. Since I didn't know Evenline before, I also didn't know the original album of course.

The thing you immediately hear is that this album is very melodic, yet it has is aggressive parts. The clean vocals are sometimes a little bit too poppy, but it isn't annoying too much. When you listen further on this album you hear that it is very diverse. It goes from the bit more aggressive Misunderstood to the more catchy Without You, but it also has some more slower songs like Already Gone. Another thing which makes it diverse are that sometimes there will be growls besides the clean vocals.

CD 2, the one with the five acoustic versions of tracks from Dear Morpheus is a very nice addition. It is acoustic, so it is not heavy of course. But, for the metalhead who can also appreciate less heavy, acoustic stuff and who already listened to the first CD, I think this is a nice extra. If you like the first disc, be sure to also give the second disc a spin. I am sure you will enjoy it too!

All together, Evenline has done a really nice job with Dear Morpheus as well as the acoustic songs. Be sure to check this out!
