As a starting point, you could say we’re in Lacuna Coil territory with this debut, crammed full of down-tuned, chunky guitars and driving rhythms, but as the album progresses there are touches of Nemesea, Within Temptation, Delain and Lullacry. However, vocal power-house Tina Gunnarsson marks the band apart – whatever the song demands she absolutely nails. Powerful, passionate, melodic and diverse, her vocals certainly give the whole thing an added vitality – the choruses shine, the verses hold your attention every time – it’s a spellbinding display.
