"ADDICTED TO DECADENCE"
"ADDICTED TO DECADENCE" is the newest offering from the Italian based band
NAUGHTY WHISPER and it takes the band in a new direction. They have left behind
their old sound of Glam Metal and taken the band in a new direction. The guys have gone
down a more Modern Metal, Gothic Rock path. They also toss in some strong Power &
Progressive Metal elements all through out the album. They have a sound that reminds me
of a lot of the Metal bands from the 80's but with a more Progressive & Modern Metal
approach. The guitar work is where a lot of the Progressive and Power Metal shines through,
while the drum work and some of the vocals lean more towards the Gothic Rock side.
NAUGHTY WHISPER has a really strong Scandinavian feel to their music with
influences of IN FLAMES, BLIND GAURDIAN, RHAPSODY & even a little LACUNA
COIL thrown in (without the female vocals). I think that NAUGHTY WHISPER has made
a change for the better with the new musical direction and it really showcases the talent of
the band members more. They will definately gain a bigger fan base with new direction as
well. Hopefully they continue with this style because I prefer it much better than their
