Sentenced - Amok

After Sentenced moved to a bigger record company, their style changed as well. While North From Here was almost categorized as black metal, Amok is pure rock & roll. And looking at that change afterwards, it seems that a rockish style fits better with Taneli Jarva's voice and Miika Tenkula's riffs. In particular, the large guitar wall and amazing ambition don't fail even for a second during Amok, even when Jarva's songs "Funeral Spring" and "Moon Magic" seem to be a little frustrating for a moment. However, as a vocalist, Jarva succeeds in creating a depressive mood for every song, and that mood and the sound of Amok are traditional to a Finnish heavy metal band. Still, Amok is a perfect choice for everyone who likes heavy metal with complex rockish guitar riffs.
