Review

’World War X’ was made to tell a story about a war that is ongoing. A story of good and evil, sanity and insanity, the heavens or hells out there and how they effect our world and the way we live.

The new JD Miller record ’World War X’ sounds like they quote: "The musical child bred by Evergrey and Eclipse". A daring statement, and truth said they try to live up to this.
JD Miller is the thing if you like melodic, guitar driven rock fronted by edgy vocals and soaring harmonies all wrapped up in modern production.

After a couple of spins i must say it is a decent album, with some nice powerfull riffs and indeed edgy vocals.
The downside is, that it is all a bit to predictable.
I miss the real surprises. the guitars and drums are the only thing that really stand out here.
Next time, more diversion and more multilayered guitars and keys to give it some more depth.

To my opinion leadsinger Peter Halldén has a good voice for this genre but does have some small vocal mistakes here and there if you listen closely.

The album was created over the last 2 years during the Swedish fall and winters to create the atmosphere. ’World War X’ was recorded at Studio Haga and Studio Berghem in Sweden by JD Miller themselves. The album was mixed by former member Christian Svedin as he understands the sound of JD Miller, and it was mastered by Thomas ’Plec’ Johansson at ‘The Panic Room’,

If you like the genre of typical Swedish powermetal, you will probably dig this one.
