review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
album of the life" for this
band!!!!In my opinion one of the best gothic album ever!!!!An unique
intensity...never found till now, every song is inspired and
emotional...This is album I was waiting for from them!!!!After the good
previous one that was released four years ago that got some good
songs, I'm sure that this is the album of consecration !!!!!
arrangements put in evidence the power of guitars, but also the piano
atmosphere...Martijn is able to create very emotional and sad parts in
are arcane atmospheres mixed with a touch of symphonic rock-metal. Some melodies
could remind of Evanescence...but in my opinion this band has found that
special feeling that makes them original and far from any other
are a lot of potential hits...the first single " Stand
my ground" is a touch from the deep of the heart....a
song that gets an unforgettable refrain and arranged in a perfect way in
which I notice a special intro that gets a touch of orchestral goth!
is a power-song with a sad melancholic atmospheres in which guitars
shows their metal background.......We can't but forget the classic
goth-power of "See who I am"
and the orchestral sad power-ballad "Jillian" in which the
band shows the absolute good period of inspiration........this second
one shows how the band is able to mix pure gothic atmosphere with the
impossible not to be amazed listening to "Memories"
....another pearl of passion in which Sharon shows all her sadness
with an unique passion....The arrangement gives value to this song (like
for all the others ones)....
is another power-goth song in which I notice some good rhythmic and also
a good atmosphere...it may be a very not inspired refrain, but it's only
my personal opinion ....
is enough intense ...yes it's true, it is another not very inspired song
....but however it gets the unmistakable depth and sensitiveness that is
a mark for this album!
this album I notice that they've arranged the songs with a most
orchestral interpretation ....and a song like "It's
fear" show a perfect power guitars sound but also a
is the final song of this album. It seems a dream within a dream!!! A
song sung by an angel...An atmospheric ballad that confirms the great
inspiration of this album!!!!
As I said before one of the best goth album ever!!!!!
