Serious Black – Mirrorworld

The album honestly feels like something that was designed to be thrown into the bargain bin. It was released only a year after their initial debut, and is even shorter than said debut. Tracks like As Long as I’m Alive, Castor Skies, and to some extent Mirrorworld are decent tracks, but the rest of the album feels totally uninspired, by the book acceptable power metal. Serious Black does the bare minimum to make their songs entertaining, and as a result comes out with something that listens more like a bag of junk food. It fills the gap in your stomach, but gives no nutritional value, and acts as nothing more than a stop gap for when your next real meal takes place.
