Thora - Cross-Nailed
Unfortunately I don't have any infos on the German THORA, but that won't stop me! (You'd just have to ask me... - Alex)

The first thing that comes to my mind is the deep, slightly throaty voice (Lemmy is looking around the corner) of Thomas Fršntzki, but he still has the ability to sing quite melodious and also in higher regions ("Fear" and "Cross Nailed"), yet still he gets to my nerves after a few rotations.

Musically they are treading slightly progressive, slightly speedy and unfortunately sometimes also quite banal paths. Some tracks are just too bumpy still ("Suffering" or "Deceit's In Vain"), which shows that this CD might come a little early, yet you realise the potential of this band ("My Black God", "Violation", two riff-laden double-bass-pieces).

Overall not really my cup of tea, but as the sound and the packaging is very good, "Cross Nailed" might very well be a good foundation for a future career.
