Sonic Cathedral’s female-fronted roundup for April – Part 2/2

SC logoOn Friday we posted our digest of the first five female-fronted albums our buddies at Sonic Cathedral reviewed during April. On Saturday we slept late. On Sunday we rested, it being the seventh day and all that. Today we feature the other four albums SC reviewed last month.

They are all goodies, like us and the people at SC. Some of them are the best, like all of the followers of SC and Metal State.

 

Landmarq – Origins

Landmarq - OriginsLabel: Synergy

Genre: Neo-Progressive Rock

Language: English

Total tracks: 18 (2 CDs)

Reviewer: Doctor T.

Sonic Cathedral rating: 9 out of 10

Landmarq have been producing solid material now for some 25 years. This double CD covers those 25 years and divides the music into the eras of their two vocalists. It crosses over into prog metal, and covers the evolution of that musical style like no one else. Sonic Cathedral’s Doctor T. calls it “great music, great ideas, and a romp through musical history with one of England’s best.”

Jaded Star – Memories From The Future

Jaded StarLabel: Sensory

Genre: Melodic Heavy Metal

Language: English

Total tracks: 10

Reviewer: Eastcoaster

Sonic Cathedral rating: 8.25 out of 10

Featuring members from previous metal bands, Jaded Star have used their experience to produce an album full of energy from all members. With pleasant, strong vocals, driving guitars and drums, and a mixture of metal songs, anthems, and ballads, Eastcoaster considers this album a must for melodic metal fans.

Frantic Amber – Burning Insight

Frantic AmberLabel: Self-released

Genre: Melodic Death Metal

Language: English

Total tracks: 11

Reviewer: Doctor T.

Sonic Cathedral rating: 9.5 out of 10

Frantic Amber is hard femme metal, the music, the vocals, the lyrics. It’s an international cast that clearly knows how to rock the house and they do that on this, their first full release. Doctor T. says: “If you want the sound to pound, this is your kind of material – solid, well produced and guaranteed to wake the dead.”

Karyn Crisis’ Gospel of the Witches – Salem’s Wounds

Karyn CrisisLabel: Century Media

Genre: Occult Experimental Metal

Language: English

Total tracks: 13

Reviewer: Christopher Backeberg

Sonic Cathedral rating: 9 out of 10

Christopher Backeberg (Mammal at Metal State, That Old Dude at Sonic Cathedral), a faithful follower of physics and a seeker of rational explanations for everything, finds himself irresistibly drawn into the realm of the occult where Karyn Crisis meets benign spirits. Karyn’s impassioned messages and descriptions from the other side are wrapped in music of the highest caliber.

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
