This MUST be the absolute best thing Iíve heard out of Italy. Yes, smartass, Iíve heard Lacuna Coil
and they should quiver in fear of their countrymen.
has taken a few styles out there and made them completely their own by adding some trademark sounds and a fantastic indie recording style. Everything on this far-too-short 20 minutes of metal delight has a slightly removed or distant sound to it, giving it all the perfect atmosphere.
The vocal style vacillates from a choral clean to a vicious hardcore scream with just the right balance to keep the listener cheering for the return of each style.
The music is dynamically fantastic, with perfect tones, strokes and a unique vision. This is probably best represented in the final track, 'Nothingeverthingís Temple'
, where the guitars lay down riffs and hooks that will have you spinning.
Despite the fact that this demo has a few issues to clear up with the sound quality, the overall production here was excellent. This is one demo that is not to be missed, and I highly recommend you snag a copy if you can.
This is a band that deserves some serious respect! Iím itching for full-length of their unique brand of melodic-hardcore-death metal mix.
