Emerald – Re-Forged CD Heavy Metal Pure Steel Records
November 19th 2010

Facts
There could actually not have been a better title for this album than “Re – forged”. Bandleader Michael Vaucher had to face the loss of his long time partner in crime Jvo Julmy, who dominated and defined the EMERALD sound with his high pitched, slightly fragile and highly charismatic voice over the years. Thomas Winkler, his successor, has to accept a heavy inheritance, though he holds the ground and withstands with his powerful metal voice all uprising hassles. Since Jvo also took on the 2nd guitar, the new man for this is Manuel Werro. In the field of songwriting, Michael Vaucher still keeps the reins and so there will be nothing but pure EMERALD metal to worship on this, their fifth album, which marks a new beginning on the other hand with the newly structured band. It is their heaviest album so far with the most wicked and unleashed guitar duels, the chunkiest riffs and most forceful rhythms to date, on which the majestic and determined sounding voice of Thomas Winkler rides like a knight in the middle of a giant battle. With Sean Peck (CAGE) and Mike Sifringer(DESTRUCTION) additionally 2 well-known guest musicians are on board. “Re – forged” unites creativity, passion for the music and great fun playing heavy metal, which you can hear from every note this band plays. It takes EMERALD to a new level. This is a step that should certainly convince most and silence the poor rest of the critics and lead into a bright future.
