Jezabel – Legiones Del Sur

qb_010504_jezabelI’m sure Jezabel wet many a panties and are looked upon as a big deal in their homeland of Argentina, but take them out of their metal deprived area and stick them on the world market and I think many will see this band as good, but just another power metal band wishing they were Helloween during the Kiske years. Since the keyboard bloated music is similar, but far from the high caliber of songwriting that Helloween exhibited back in the day, the closest connection between the 2 bands is Jezabel’s vocalist. This guy can sing, but does so by often mimicking the delivery and interesting vocal inflection originally introduced by Michael Kiske. Put this guy in a tribute band and he could hold his own with little effort. Having said that, “Legiones Del Sur” does possess a handful of noteworthy solos, but Jezabel really need to find a sound that could be considered their own and let go of this half assed and largely uninteresting idolatry. – Marty
