Imminence is a metalcore / post hardcore band from Threlleborg, Sweden. The five musicians have offered energetic and melodic music through three powerful albums "I (We Are Triumphant Records)", "This is Goodbye" and "Turn The Light On". The Swedes are re-releasing the latter, released in 2019, as a new edition enhanced with acoustic versions.

"Turn The Light On" appears as a balancing act between super energetic tracks, melodic coating and acoustic softness. The melodic orientation appears from the first seconds of 'Erase' to 'Love And Grace', simple and sometimes unstoppable tracks that make you want to sing. The passages of piano or keyboards with icy beauty are numerous and offer a nice contrast with the heavy guitars and the aggressive vocals. Finally the guitar lines are direct and the riffs sometimes relatively complex.

The record oscillates between tension and relaxation, tensions proper to metal and soaring and peaceful passages underlined by a melancholic violin ('Lighthouse'), a discreet synthesizer ('Death Of You'), an intimate piano almost shy ('Love & Grace') or by the soft voice which reminds Muse. The emotion arises by the simplicity and the great sweetness nestled in the hollow of the furnace ('Wake Me Up'). 

As for the acoustic versions, they bring an extra soul underlined by the laments of the violin. This purified aspect gives the songs a serene atmosphere. More than a simple dressing, the acoustic style illuminates the titles of a new gleam, between serenity and plenitude.

"Turn The Light On" is a beautiful, modern, moving and simple album. Its strength lies in the great variety of sensations it provides: tenderness, anger, power, softness, melancholy... The album charms modestly without being ostentatious.

JESSIE LEE & THE ALCHEMISTS: Let It Shine (2021)
ROCK - "Let It Shine" is a warm soul blues album dominated by Jessie Lee's beautiful voice.
WOLVERINE: A Darkened Sun (2021)
PROGRESSIVE METAL - Guided by the narrative logic of a mini-film, "A Darkened Sun" is of a great cohesion, but that does not prevent Wolverine from proposing a relative diversity in its tracks.
