Allaroundmetal: Venus, A Promising Debut Album.

Translated Article:

Venus is a new name in the national Metal scene; Giusy Minervino (known artistically as Venus) has sung, played, and collaborated in creating arrangements in various vocal and instrumental groups. However, it was only after meeting Marco D’Andrea, guitarist for Planet Hard and his eponymous solo project, as well as a record producer, that the idea of forming a band and producing the album “Two-0-one-9” was born. The album was written, arranged, and produced by Marco D’Andrea himself, with lyrics by Venus. To be honest, I didn’t expect much from this record, partly because of the unimpressive artwork (I’m not fond of disguises), and the inevitable intro, though not as superfluous as in other albums, didn’t exactly encourage me. But then came excellent songs like “My Evil Side” (for which a video was also shot featuring numerous guests) and the very intense “In a Perfect World”.

But most notably, the fantastic “Musician Anthem” (extremely melodic) and “Stop Kill the Earth” (truly sparkling and brilliant, featuring guest artist Alberto Zampolli from Planet Hard who duets wonderfully with Minervino) made me completely change my mind! Overall, the entire album is quite pleasing, even if there are some repetitive elements in “In the Name of” or a lack of energy in the concluding “You Are the One”, which perhaps is a bit too “sweet” and lengthy. However, these are details that don’t detract from the final result. The genre Venus plays is robust Heavy Metal, with strong Power influences, where guitars (Marco D’Andrea on lead has always been a guarantee of quality!) and the powerful and clear voice of the leader, Giusy Minervino, stand out. In summary, “Two-0-one-9” is an excellent debut album from Venus, a band that has showcased great potential from all perspectives. We hope the band continues on this path and gifts us with more outstanding records like this one!
