Releases, in threes [#5] HeavyRock we love pt.I
- ARENNA - "Given to Emptiness"
- ELBRUS - "Elburs"

- In "Releases, in threes" three albums of about the same genre or attitude (or not) are reviewed in brief. Probably one would enjoy listening the three of them in a row, no matter the order. 
Still sobering up from the drinking of the days that preceded and followed new year's eve I found myself wondering about making a list of 2018's favorite albums or something like that. After a lot (not) of thought and since more days of general debauchery followed I found myself listening to some past -non 2018- releases that would calm my troubled ears, brain and liver. I found shelter on three favorite heavy rock albums which the last week they played repeatedly through my speakers and really helped me get my self together :-) Three bands that come from three completely different countries: Spain, Poland and Australia. Enjoy!

Arenna - Given to Emptiness
Arenna - Given to Emptiness (2015, Spain)
- The band about themselves: ...lovers of heavy riffs
- Us about the band:  soul and mind healing atmospheric heavy rock.
- Facts:  sophomore album and 2nd cosecutive time that those guys release a really beautiful work.
- Short comment: having followed them since their demo, clearly they're getting better and better.
- Strong point:  the constantly airy atmosphere blended with tasty fuzzed riffs the ethereal solos and the particularly distinctive vocals.
- We are curious...  to see how they will continue to blend their heavy riffs with psychedelia
- For a quick taste... press play on Drums for Sitting Bull.
