review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
the previous mediocre “Kill the sun” Xandria comes back with a
good cd, that I’m sure will bring them near to Nightwish,
Within Temptation etc…
production and the arrangements have been realized with a great care,
and there are also some good original ideas concerning compositive
is mixed with Celtic , but I notice an evident influence from Power
concerning many rhythmic parts!
title track gets an unforgettable refrain into a Power sweet song in
which Lisa is able to touch the heart with an intense
interpretation!!! This song shows me a new
band…very far from “Kill the sun”(the previous album)…but
this is only the begin!!!!
Lioness” is a Power-Goth sad song , in which Lisa sings
her sadness into a mid-tempo song in which I notice an amazing
Philip’s guitar solo!
to the River” gets a romantic refrain, and the song
seems a mixture between Within Temptation and Nightwish!!!
is a sweet lullaby in which Lisa’s voice and piano are able to
touch the hidden part of your soul! A Gothic sweet masterpiece!
all songs gets originality and even if the album sounds excellent I
notice the lack of ideas listening to “Fire of Universe”,
a monotonous song in which the band is not able to find the perfect
like it cold” gets a Gothic atmosphere , but the
refrain is not up to the task…
is one of the best song of this album! A great melody, a great song
in which Lacuna Coil influences meets the originality of this band!
Lisa shows her soul and I notice a perfect arrangement!
scarlet-Name” is a sad Gothic song characterized by a cadenced
rhythm and some original Celtic influences …
all ideas are up to the task…”Black Flame
“ gets good ideas, but on the whole it reminds me of old
release…On the contrary it’s impossible
not to underline the melancholic atmosphere of “Too
close to breathe” in which Lisa sings with an intense sadness
and a deep sweetness; moreover I underline the great arrangement!
mediocre song is “Keep my secret well” in which both
the melody and the structure’s song are made without
On the whole a good release; an essential one for gothic souls!
