REVIEW : ROBLEDO, Broken Soul (Frontiers Music s.r.l., Release date : July 14, 2023)

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the second solo release from Chilean vocalist James Robledo. "Broken Soul" will be released on July 14, 2023 and follows the 2021 release of his well-received debut solo album, "Wanted Man".

For this album, James is joined by his Sinner's Blood bandmate Nasson (Chaos Magic) on guitar, drummer Jacopo Martignoni, and producer/bassist/keyboardist Alessandro Del Vecchio, who also produced his debut album.

"Broken Soul" is without any doubt a solid melodic hard rock/metal record all the way! Robledo has a powerful and strong voice, there's no doubt 'bout that. The songs are all heavy with killer solos and big riffs, huge melodies and some choruses to sing-a-long! 

"Broken Soul", "Real World" and "Right Now, Right Here" are all catchy, powerful and with a massive guitar sound tracks that must be played on a maximum volume! The moodier and darker tune of  "Fire" is one of the highlights out of the new opus! More in a modern way melodic metal vein this track is killer! "Every Day", "My Own Hope" and "Dead City Lights" are three more superb moments out of "Broken Soul"! The song that closes the new effort, "To The End", is yet another gem here!!! 

ROBLEDO's newest "Broken Soul" really came out of nowhere to deliver a big, powerful and guitar-driven melodic metal/hard rock gem!
