Review Type: 

This is the debut album for this Norwegian band.  As a matter of fact it’s a self release, on their own label Quietude Productions.  So far they’ve already released three demo EP’s.

Some people categorize their music as Gothic Metal, but I wouldn’t dare to go as far.  Certainly, it’s not pop music, but I would not call this real metal either. It’s something in between, and could just as well be played in a metal program, as on a normal radio show.  Some songs are harder, while some songs are rather soft.  At times they sound like Evanescence and other songs for some unknown reason make me think of Kerli

My guess is with a better production this would have been a far better album. At times there is so much going on at the same time that you get overwhelmed by the sounds. Yet despite that it must be said that Malene Markussen has a very nice, crisp and clean voice.

To sum it up, it’s a nice album, despite being somewhere in the middle between radio friendly music for the masses and metal – for the select few.
