Posted by Jimmy | Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 9:04 AM


One thing you can be sure about in listening to this band is that they explore various musical styles and the other thing is that they are doing it with brio and real talent!.The demo starts with a short and awesome intro and suddendly the next track is bursting into a mid tempo heavy and loud Hardcore / Screamo with dual sung vocals mixing throaty & screaming singings and from which emerge pain and despair!.Next song is in the same vein but with a stronger emotive / passionate feel to it and with the addition of a girl for the vocals parts bringing a sweet melodious touch to the song's structure.The other song is more a Post Hardcore/Rock song with catchy driving parts and a cool / fine guitar work and you will be probably like me touched by the beauty and charm of the girl's voice.Next song is an intense and punchy mid tempo Hardcore song having powerful singalongs.The latest song...i cant stop to listen to it again and again....so beautiful and magic .... i am totally under the spell of the charismatic voice of the female singer!.One of the best bands i got the opportunity to discover this year!.
