Leda – Marocco Speed (Album – Leda & Il Piccio Records)
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: “Marocco speed” is the second album by the Italian formation Leda. The work was released three years after the debut opus.
Content: “Marocco Speed” sounds like a Dark-Rock interpretation with Italian, female, vocals on top. The work is driven by powerful guitar play and refined with electronic arrangements. The songs are a mix of rage and melancholia.
+ + + : The main strength of the work is singer Serena Abrami. She injects a true soul into the band, switching in between enraged passages and sweet vocals. Sound-wise the darkest song of the album “Femme Flow” is my personal favorite one.
– – – : The album features only 8 songs which is not that much. But the main point is that the album is missing a true climax.
Conclusion: Leda is not exactly setting the world alight but I can imagine this will possibly please Italian fans of Dark-Rock music.
Best songs: “Femme Flow”.
