A Wallpaper of the Band Lullacry
What this article about Lullacry Will Cover
Finnish hard rockers Lullacry had been around for a while. In fact, they had been under that name since 1998. In 2003, they released their 3rd album called Crucify My Heart. That same year, they released a single called Alright Tonight. What follows is a review of the single called Alright Tonight and a review of the band’s 2004 Extended Play album called Fire Within. The single contains the song Alright Tonight as well as the song Sweet Desire done by vocalist Tanja Lainio who joined the band back in 2002. Sweet Desire is a song off of the band's debut of the same name.
Lullacry Got Stronger as a Band After 2002 and Here is Why
Lullacry split up after performing 3 farewell concerts in Finland. The band started under the name of Coarse back in 1992 and they were originally a death metal band from 1992 through 1998. Tanja Lainio in my opinion is one of the most beautiful heavy metal singers that we have had. With the release of the single Alright Tonight and their 3rd album Crucify My Heart, Lullacry entered a new era with vocalist Tanja Lainio. The band actually got stronger in the songwriting department after 2002 and these two releases are evidence of this.
Lullacry's Style of Music and the Role of Tanja Lainio
Lullacry's style of music would most likely be classified as Gothic rock or Gothic metal but I refer to them as heavy rock. Tanja Lainio has a sweeter kind of voice when she sings and this is how she differs from vocalists such as Flowing Tears' Helen Vogt or Lacuna Coil's Cristina Scabbia. This article is actually to dedicate it to a band that has put out one solid album after another. They have no bad albums at all and such a feat is rare in the music world. They got lots of attention from the Finnish record label Spinefarm Records after the release of their debut album Sweet Desire. The album is now out of print and cannot be purchased. Before we get started here, just say with me: everything’s gonna be alright tonight.
About the Song Alright Tonight
The rocking song Alright Tonight is about being in a relationship with someone who is loyal, trustworthy, and loves you for who you are. It is really reassuring to know that the person you love will never break your heart. As Tanja sings “I promise you we’ll make it somehow,” that is one of the best lines in the song. Nothing will separate these two dedicated lovers and they will make it through the days, tough or easy, through sickness and in health. True love is so challenging to find but when you find it you will usually be in a state of bliss. When that lover of ours is in our heart everything’s going to be alright. It may sound cheesy at first but the message is straightforward.
About the Fire Within Extended Play Album and Final Thoughts
As for the Fire Within Extended Play CD, there is a cover song on there and it is the one called Love Machine by the artist known as W.A.S.P. All of us need a machine that dispenses the feeling of love!! This album also has a tribal reprise version of the song Be My God which is off of their second album of the same name. There is also a slower, classical piano version of the song Crucify My Heart. Never trade everything for love because you are desperate. Desperation is never a good strategy to use in life. There is also the very good song called “The #1 Rebel.” The single Alright Tonight and the Extended Play Album Fire Within are great to have in your Lullacry CD collection but make sure to also listen to the whole Crucify My Heart album as it has one solid song after the other!
