'No Regrets', the latest release from Brazilian based melodic rockers, Marenna is a pure melodic hard rock album in the best tradition. It moves on the strengths of great vocals and vocal arrangements, compelling guitar solos, good melodies, and catchy lyrical hooks, all with an edge. The band is comprised of, Rodrigo Marenna - lead & backing vocals, Jonas Godoy on guitars, keyboards and backing vocals, Aaron Alves on guitar, Appel Alves, on bass and backing and Gionathan Sandi on drums. Special Gests guitar solos, Sasha Z, Mauro Caldart, Fernando Mig, Bruno Mello and special guests on drums, Guilherme Mello, Rafael Netto and Ivan Busic. There's some hard rock punch, but it's tempered by fantastic melodies, light keyboards and some real heart and soul coming from Rodrigo Marenna's voice. Right off the bat the album kicks off with the adrenaline powered, "Reason To Live", from there it's melodic hard rock bliss with, "Can't Let You Go", "Never Surrender", "Come Back" and "About Love". Big Guitars, Big Choruses, Lots of Melody, Great Production. 'No Regrets' is an absolute gem of an album. Overall, it sounds great with no filler. The band's debut was excellent, but that's not the case here. They really out did themselves with this sophomore effort. With 'No Regrets' Marenna have raised the bar for themselves and leaped over it without a doubt one of the best melodic hard rock albums I've heard this year.
- Highly Recommended
