From the tacky front cover to the name it is not hard to guess what this lot will be playing! Yeah, you guessed a bit of Black or Death Metal. Which one I am not to bothered with as this just sounds like CRADLE OF FILTH. Slow it all down and they sound like MAIDEN. Listen to the start of "To Die… Before My Time" and Steve Harris is gonna be suing for using "Mother Russia" as the intro.
The vocalist, Ipek, a lady would you believe screams her lungs out with tremendous abandon then delivers almost operatic passages! Sure these extremes bands like to mix up different styles and this is where the problem lies: get decent singers in and then I will listen to this music. The guitars and rhythm section are excellent - melodic and precise, extremely fast, but controlled. The keyboard-swirls add atmosphere and it is obvious that these guys can play even if you have Wolverine-like extensions fitted to your gloves!!!! But the vocals are bloody awful and really let the excellent musicianship down aside from the ludicrous song titles "Fuck Your Lord" springs to mind on that count!
I am not much of an extreme Metal-fan so maybe I am missing an answer as to why they have this vocal style. But on the whole this is an enjoyable listen and not as bad as I had first feared.
