Don’t you just love those emotional tracks from Evanescence? In fact, that’s what the band is known most for; emotional, passionate, melodramatic, sorrowful, you name it. They’ve made their latest album more bright and strayed a bit from their darker days. And that’s understandable being that Amy Lee along with the others are in a more uplifting place in life. However, I still love those sad, yet passionate numbers. Check out the artistic music video for “My Heart Is Broken,” one of the more heartwrenching tracks on their album, and tell us what you think. This woman can certainly belt out those notes. Continue reading “Evanescence’s “My Heart Is Broken””
DIR EN GREY has always projected sorrow, pain, and aggression in their music. A theme they’ve carried right throughout the band’s lifetime. What I like about them is their ability to transition but remaining true to their original concept. The band’s 8th studio album “Dum Spiro Spero”, which literally translates to “While I Breathe, I Hope”, provides more evidence to the fact that DIR EN GREY’s music is ever timeless; this is rock undefined. A rare quality found in the industry. Each track symbolizes something of great meaning, whether it’s the recent event that took place in their homeland Japan, or from personal experiences faced by the members. There is great depth in the music and I couldn’t bypass a review of this fascinating album. Continue reading “[Review] DIR EN GREY’S “Dum Spiro Spero””
Elysion is a greek band driven by metal elements fusing pop, rock, electro and alternative together. Their name is derived from the “Elysian fields” from Greek history, and is interpreted as “dreamy” or having a “romantic perspective of things”, as described by the band’s lead vocalist Christianna. This alluring songstress can rock out any stage she steps foot on. Her voice is like liquid flowing through your veins; once she’s started there’s no escaping her.
Elysion has peeked the interest of many with their debut album “Silent Scr3am” and are now hard at work developing new material for their follow-up. Amidst the band’s busy schedule, Christianna spared some time for EY to give us an exclusive interview. So, indulge yourself with the otherworldly song “Far From The Edge” and check out the interview with Elysion’s vocalist below:
There’s nothing more lovely than a female vocalist in a metal band. And Christianna of Elysion provides evidence to that statement.
