Sonic Cathedral’s female-fronted roundup for May: Part 2

SC logoYesterday’s digest of FF album reviews published by Sonic Cathedral featured six of the 11 albums Sonic Cathedral reviewed during June. Here are the other five. I hasten to add that our digest doesn’t present those albums in any order of preference. We’re listing them in their chronological sequence of publication on SC.

Thanks again for sharing your reviews with us, you fine folks at SC. To everyone who promotes, plays for or sings in a band with female vocals, Sonic Cathedral is a place you must visit.

 

I Miss My Death – In Memories

I Miss My DeathLabel: Metal Scrap Records

Genre: Gothic Doom Metal

Language: Mainly English

Total tracks: 9

Reviewer: Doctor T.

Sonic Cathedral rating: 10 out of 10

It’s not often Sonic Cathedral sees a 10/10 score, notes Doctor T., and even more rare that we see something above that. But, I Miss My Death has produced maybe the finest visual / musical production since Nightwish’s “End of an Era”. This is Ukrainian Gothic doom in all its glory; solid music, a visual experience to be remembered, everything you want from the genre. It’s a 10/10 plus.

Crimson Sky – Transcendental Trip

Crimson SkyLabel: Metal Scrap Records

Genre: Gothic Doom Metal

Language: English, Ukrainian, French, Latin lyrics

Total tracks: 8

Reviewer: Doctor T.

Sonic Cathedral rating: 10 out of 10

Crimson Sky is another Ukrainian Gothic doom band providing a solid interpretation of that music genre. But, good as their music is, Doctor T thinks the lyrics are even better. “It’s rare you get this complete a package, it’s definitely a Transcendental Trip of the highest order.”

Kamelot – Haven

Sonic Cathedral rating: 9.8 out of 10

Kamelot have exceeded expectations with their new album. Eastcoaster says: “Not only does this album showcase the vocals of Tommy Karevik, but the return of their trademark style, along with a more modern sound, makes this album a must for any melodic metal fan. A bonus is the guest vocalists.”

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.
